Sony has made breakthrough coating,
surface smoothing, and particle innovations in order to reliably deliver on
LTO-5's impressive 1.5TB native and 3.0TB compressed recording capacity. LTO-5
now also features the ability for users to create two partitions within the
cartridge, addressing both file control and space management. This feature can
help to increase access speed, which is important for storing rich media files. Sony uses a proprietary Advanced Alloy
Armored Metal Particle (A3MP) technology to provide better protection for your
most valuable data. A3MP uniformly coats the metal particles with alloys and
ceramics to provide high-output characteristics, maintain a high resistance to
environmental conditions, and reduce variations in particle size when compared
to conventional materials.
- Increased Capacity: 3TB (at 2:1 compression; 1.5 TB native), almost
double the capacity of LTO 4.
- Faster Transfer Speed: up to 280 MB/sec (at 2:1 compression)
- Secure: Built-in AES 256-bit encryption (IEEE 1619.1)
