Quantum to feature SDLT 600A data tape drive

At IBC2006, Quantum will show the SDLT 600A, a data tape drive enhanced for professional video, and the new Super DLTtape II cartridge designed for use with the drive.

The SDLT 600A offers a tape-based file system and network-attached storage that is MXF-aware for today’s file-based workflows.

Each 300GB-capacity Super DLTtape II cartridge is designed to hold more than six hours of high-definition content recorded at 100Mb/s and carries its own file system directory, allowing direct drag-and-drop access by applications on the network without the need for other software. Each tape is designed to have a 30-year archival life.

With built-in Gigabit Ethernet capability, the SDLT 600A is also network-attached, permitting direct access by every workstation and server on the network.
