A USB 3.0 LTO-6 drive that connects to a laptop and allows file archiving and restoring via drag and drop will be demonstrated at the show.
The new system from XenData is the X2500-USB, which writes to high capacity 2.5 TB LTO cartridges. A single LTO cartridge can securely store over 100 hours of compressed HD at 50 Mb/s and XenData said its new system can manage an unlimited number of such cartridges, providing near infinite storage. The company claimed the X2500-USB is ideal for transferring files from camera storage such as P2 or XDCAM to LTO cartridges.
Also at BVE 2015, XenData will be demonstrating network attached storage (NAS) systems that securely store video content to LTO, Sony ODA cartridges or the Amazon cloud. These are compatible with a wide range of third-party systems including from Cambridge Imaging Systems, CatDV, Dalet, Evertz, EVS, Focal Point Server, File Catalyst, Grass Valley and Quantel.
The digital video archiving solutions provider will also be showcasing its major initiatives in the past year, which include the added support for Amazon Web Services (AWS) Storage across its entire archive appliance and server product range, new robotic LTO storage systems that scale to over 1PB and installation successes at the USA’s Public Broadcasting Service, Crew Cuts in New York and N1, the CNN affiliate in Southern Europe.
