Imagine Products_myLTOdna_LTO Tape Authoring Application

myLTOdna for Mac

A copy application geared for media files. The software is optimised to take advantage of StorageDNA’s enhanced Linear File Transfer System (hyperTape), developed to let users interact directly with files on a tape using their favourite applications for the fastest, simplest LTO tape workflows available anywhere.

With dnaLTFS Training license, build a Random Access Database (RAD) file for each tape's media contents. hyperTape eliminates the latency seek and restore time inherent with typical linear tape storage for sequential read operations like transcoding, quality control and ingest. This allows the LTO tape to behave much like a random access device in these situations.

PreRoll™ Post for Mac

An application that automates indexing your camera originals, complete with thumbs, proxies and metadata, while backing up full resolution media to local disk and long-term LTO tapes, Optical Disc or local disk or server.

The software takes advantage of the Linear File Transfer System (LTFS) developed by IBM and supported by many tape drive manufacturers. LTFS mounts a tape as a volume (hard disk) within OSX. This makes it possible to write and read from the tape as if it were a disk without proprietary software or formatting. It also makes PreRoll Post hardware independent—you can use it with any LTFS compliant tape drive or Sony Optical Disc Archive (ODA).
