content management system.â€? With its internal hard drive, and with each LTO-5 tape providing 1.5 TB of recording capacity and LTFS portable file system, the LTR-120HS also doubles as a material/program exchange media server. The unit features HD/SD-SDI I/O, gigabit Ethernet interface for file-based I/O, and RS-422 for external VTR control.
