Taking tape materials and coating technology to new heights, LTO3 offers a breakthrough in performance with a massive 400GB native and 800GB compressed maximum storage capacity per cartridge. For quicker backup and cost efficiency, LTO3 offers ultra-high-speed 80MB/s native and 160MB/s compressed data transfer. This not only accelerates file access, but also markedly speeds up cartridge access in library environments.
Sony raised S/N ratio further to optimize performance for high-density recording using MR heads. Output is boosted and a variety of noise reduced by employing the latest weather-resistant ultra-fine magnetic material with high packing density on a newly designed base film surface featuring improved smoothness. Reduced tape thickness is one of the keys to attaining higher storage capacity in the LTO3 cartridge. To assure tape travel stability and optimum winding with this thinner tape, Sony reassessed the back surface design and adopted a suitable lubricant. The dedicated servo writer that Sony developed for the LTO format provides a high-quality magnetic servo signal, which complements the enhanced performance of the tape itself. The result is significantly improved data writing and reading accuracy.
