FOR-A Unveils LTO-5 High-Capacity, Tape-Based Video Storage Appliance at NAB 2012

Fort Lee, New Jersey – Building on its successful line of LTO-5 video archiving recorders, FOR-A will introduce the LTS-50 storage appliance at the 2012 NAB Show in Las Vegas, April 16-19 (Booth C5219). Using a network connection, it archives media files to LTO-5 high-capacity tape, regardless of file format.

The LTS-50 uses an LTFS (linear tape file system), which records video on tape as files and enables the reading and writing of files from a PC via FTP. It’s ideal for data backup that does not require video I/O, as well as archives of nonlinear editing materials that will be reused. Plus, it can create original and duplicate copies with the installation of an external LTO drive. The LTS-50 can be controlled through FOR-A’s optional LTR Browser software, and another optional proxy generator can be configured to automatically create low-resolution proxy files and thumbnails when archiving MXF files.

With this new storage device, FOR-A is building on its successful line of video archiving recorders that use LTO-5 tape. Both its LTR-120HS and LTR-100HS video archiving recorders will also be on display, along with the MBP-100MP multi-format player and MBP-100SX MXF clip server and baseband converter. The LTR-120HS provides “archive at ingest” for AVC-Intra/DVCPRO file-based workflows, while the LTR-100HS supports MPEG-2. Data from the LTS-50 is compatible with both recorders.

“LTO-5 is an established standard in data tape storage technology, and it’s an ideal option for creating archives that are reliable and cost effective,” said Pedro Silvestre, sales director for FOR-A Corporation of America. “The new LTS-50 is an excellent tool for broadcasters and other production facilities with file-based workflows.”
