myLTOdna with AutoTrain Hardware-Software Bundle

This turnkey bundle has everything you need to create and train HyperTapes. It includes three software applications: myLTOdna, dnaLTFS and PrimeTranscoder.
Plus a MagStor LTO-8 tape drive with Intel Certified Thunderbolt 3 ports.

myLTOdna for Macintosh is a copy application geared for media files. The software is optimized to take advantage of StorageDNA’s enhanced Linear File Transfer System (Hyper Tape). This dynamic system was developed to let users interact directly with files on a tape using their favorite 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 storagefor 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.

With myLTOdna you can streamline your workflow: Write directly to tape in the field and use that tape as the source for ingest. There's no need to archive source material when the project's complete--it's already on an LTO tape!

DNA Write Mode is designed to turn tape into a high performance, streaming write device. Data is written directly to tape, without any disk caching for high performance workflows.

DNA Training Mode is used to develop a RAD file with access instructions for media files on the tape. You may train a tape by running a target application and opening each media file, or automate the process utilizing Imagine Products’ PrimeTranscoder application in conjunction with myLTOdna. This "Auto-Train Mode" quickly analyzes all media files on the tape to create a RAD file specific to that tape's contents.

DNA Read Mode is designed to immediately provide the file information your video application needs without the overhead of cuing and restoring the files to disk. In myLTOdna, select 'DNA Read Mode' then mount the tape. The result is random access behavior from a linear tape.

Overview: MagStor LTO-8

Experience the power of the latest LTO and Thunderbolt technology! LTO-8 features an amazing data transfer speed of up to 300MB/second, tape cartridges that hold up to 12 TB of uncompressed files, and offers a shelf life of up to 30+ years.

You'll love MagStor's easy front-access Thunderbolt 3 USB-C ports. Quickly connects the LTO-8 tape drive to your Macintosh or Windows computer. And, you may loop-through to connect other Thunderbolt 3 devices, such as RAIDs, without loosing bandwidth.

Thunderbolt 3 devices are fully backwards compatible with previous generations of Thunderbolt technology. We recommend the Apple MMEL2AM/A adapter with those using computers with older Thunderbolt ports.

MagStor's quiet, vibration free operation and practical form-factor make it ideal for on-the-set carts or tucked away in the edit suite or equipment room.

And the 3.5" SATA Hard Disk Hot-Swap Dock allows easy read or write to the HDD with myLTO. Use it to read a source drive, or make an additional copy of files to a hard disk at the same time while archiving to tape.
