Corporation of America, a leading manufacturer of video and audio systems for the broadcast and professional video industries, will showcase its LTR-100HS

Video Archive Recorder

at Createsphere’s Digital Asset Management Conference, being held from September 22nd to 23rd at The New Yorker Hotel in Manhattan (Booth #206).

The recorder supports LTO-5 technology, the latest standard in long-term, high-capacity tape storage, to provide an effective archive solution. The LTR-100HS utilizes FOR-A’s

media asset management

platform called Media Concierge, creating a combination of LTO tape technology and FOR-A’s baseband and MXF file technologies. This enables an easy transition for video content into a file-based storage system architecture. “The Digital Asset Management conference is the idea venue to show off this system,” explained Pedro Silvestre, Sales Director, FOR-A Corporation of America. “The conference attracts top regional technology executives within corporate, broadcast and entertainment companies. Because the LTR-100 records video on tape as files, broadcasters and other production facilities can use it to build compact, cost effective, and reliable archives.” The LTR-100HS makes file ingest workflow more efficient and reduces archive space requirements. Equipped with a high quality MPEG-2 codec, the LTR-100HS includes an MXF wrapper/un-wrapper, so MXF files (XDCAM HD/HD422/IMX) recorded to LTO-5 tape can be used directly by many NLE systems. LTO-5 tape cartridges can store approximately 50 hours of programming recorded at 50 Mbps. Within its compact chassis and half rack design, the LTR-100HS includes an LTO-5 drive, 2 TB hard drive, HD/SD-SDI I/O, and LCD monitor. Other features include front panel playback controls with a convenient jog/shuttle wheel, RS-422 for external VTR control, gigabit Ethernet interface for file-based I/O, and USB 2.0 interface for barcode reader, PC keyboard, or USB storage.
