[Jan Crittenden Livingston] "My most favorite at this point in time is DLT/LTV tape storage solutions, data Storage tape. The cheaper they are the slower, but you can get a Dell for about $2250 and a about $50 for 200gigs. This will give you slightly faster than real time on HD and about 2X on DVCPRO50."

When you first mentioned this to me in person several months ago, I admit that I sort of poo-pooed it in my mind. I've since researched it, and yeah, it looks like the way to go until holographic optical becomes readily available at prosumer prices which may take another 2 years, I'm guessing.

The LTO units are by far the best combination of capacity, speed and price over DLT and others. BTW the Dell LTO2 unit you mention actually sells for less than $1700 and their LTO3 unit (400 GB native capacity) is 3 times the speed (3X realtime for HD and 6X for 50) for less than $3500. Media cost for either unit is around 25 cents/GB. Dell's pricing on these is as good as anyone's. These should hold the fort for small outfits until Holographic.

The Dell connection:
