Quantum Previews MXF-Aware Data Tape Technology At IBC

Offers direct file access, timecode-based content retrieval, and MXF interoperability (September 07, 2005)

Quantum Corp., a global leader in storage, will preview its award-winning SDLT 600A data tape drive technology at the International Broadcasters Convention, RAI Centre, Amsterdam, Sept. 9-13, at the Fuji Magnetics Stand 11.111. The first IT data tape drive specifically enhanced for professional video, the SDLT 600A with DLTxchange merges the familiar benefits of traditional video tape with the cost-effective performance, reliability and flexibility of Quantum data tape drive technology.
Phil Ritti, VP & general manager of Quantums Storage Media Business Unit, will discuss how Quantum specifically developed this technology to help video professionals store the growing volume of data particularly in High Definition -- they are producing as they evolve from traditional, video tape-based operations to all-digital, file-based workflows.

Data Tape Drive Combines Direct File Access, Timecode-Based Content Retrieval, MXF Interoperability, Low-Cost and High Reliability to Meet Evolving Storage Needs
The DLTxchange enhancement makes SDLT 600A the first MXF-aware data tape drive technology. By integrating MXF, an important industry standard developed by the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE), the SDLT 600A with DLTxchange supports true IT file-based workflows. Users have direct access to valuable metadata, including timecode, and can retrieve any portion of an archived video clip without having to restore or view the entire file. SDLT 600A is highly interoperable, providing the ready exchange of video assets created and stored with the MXF-enabled acquisition, production and playout equipment now being widely deployed by broadcasters and video professionals.
