Fort Lee, New Jersey – 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 is ideal for data backup that does not require video I/O, as well as archives of nonlinear editing materials that will be reused.
