"If Content is King, Long Live the King!" LTO Technology and LTFS: Preserving Your Digital Assets

Wed, Mar 12, 2014 1:00 PM EDT

In the media and entertainment industry, content is king. The majority of this content is now produced in digital form while virtually all of this content is distributed digitally. Amid a growing demand for higher-quality content, such as HD and 4k, digital data is rapidly growing in size and adding to soaring production costs.

LTO Digital tape – considered a highly cost-effective and reliable option – has increasingly become the archive answer for producers, and since the introduction of Linear Tape File System (LTFS), archiving content to tape in the workflow can be as easy as using drag-and-drop with a USB data stick.

In this session, learn how LTO-6 tape storage technology with the innovative Linear Tape File System (LTFS) can deliver a self-describing open format with no application dependencies. Hear how Alpha TV has implemented a reliable, cost-effective, scalable and easily accessible archiving platform  to protect, preserve and re-use their digital assets while improving file based production, post production, distribution and digital media archiving workflows.
