FUJIFILM Recording Media U.S.A., Inc. is pleased to announce the launch and availability of its FUJIFILM LTO Ultrium 9 Data Cartridge (LTO-9). Fujifilm’s LTO-9 complies with the ninth generation LTO Ultrium*2 standards for magnetic tape storage media, marking a new standard of performance for backing up and archiving large volumes of data. Fujifilm’s LTO-9 uses proprietary technology to offer up to 45TB of storage capacity (18TB for non-compressed data), a 50% increase from the previous generation of LTO tape*3.
FUJIFILM Recording Media U.S.A., Inc. announced the release of an online calculator designed to help video surveillance (VS) industry professionals assess the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for long-term retention of video surveillance content. Today’s low-cost, high-resolution cameras combined with longer-term retention requirements are driving video content storage costs upwards across the VS industry and leading many to take a new look at their storage strategy.
The Optical Device Division of FUJIFILM North America Corporation today announced that the FUJIFILM SX800, a new, long-range surveillance camera equipped with built-in lens, will be available in the U.S. in August 2019. The SX800, developed with FUJIFILM Corporation’s unique optical and cutting-edge image processing technology, features a high-performance, built-in FUJINON zoom lens, offering 40x optical zoom and a focal length range extending to 800mm.
As LTO storage technology is beginning to take root in the video surveillance retention market, a lawsuit such as this described below, could ultimately reduce the number of sources to obtain this storage technology and would more than likely increase costs thus stunting the acceptance of this technology in the physical security market. With companies like Quantum and SpectraLogic and others showcasing the low-cost option of long-term video retention when using LTO storage technologies, such a supply-chain lawsuit will not help grow this market.
