Re: [AV Media Matters] Digitizing Audio and Video-ReallyBigPost
With the incredible capacity of Hard Disk Drives and DataTapes, I see no
reason for using compression for archival video. About 128 GB is
for one hour of uncompressed NTSC video.
LTO is now the most popular DataTape format. You can get information
LTO at two websites: www.ultium.com and www.ibm.com/storage/LTO
The three big manufacturers of HDDs have solved the head crash problem
consider HDDs as a good archival medium. Western Digital, Seagate, and
Maxtor are the three. I recommend the ATA interface.
I always recommend making two copies of everything and storing one set
off-site. If you can afford to make one set LTO and the other set HDD,
would be ideal.
For distribution, it is hard to beat DVD.
