Sony 1.2TB write-once Optical Disc Archive Cartridge is an optical disc-based storage system based on Blu-ray technology but inherits some key attributes from Sony’s Professional Disc (XDCAM® ) format. This system involves the use of multiple bare discs contained within a very robust cartridge. The file format is UDF (Universal Disk Format), to allow for easy media exchange without the need for specialized software. Each ODA cartridge cartridge allows random access to files and high speed data retrieval.
The non-contact read/write technology of optical disc enables high reliability. Optical disc technology is extremely robust with a media archivallife estimated at up to 50 years*, substantially longer than other storage media in the market. The cartridge is designed to be highly durable and resilient in a wide range of environmental conditions. This enables you to store the media in the typical office environment and does not require special climate controlled conditions.
The media has a built-in "Cartridge Memory." The built in "Cartridge Memory" provides seam - less integration between the cartridge and drive by storing basic content recording information. With the future release of application software, the cartridge memory feature will allow users to identify the contents of the media with mobile devices for efficient asset management, such as cartridge tracking and digital asset inventory control.
