I agree with Andrew - once the price of solid state media (whatever that becomes) is inexpensive, we will have hard media just like tapes. LTO Tapes, or inexpensive SATA drive backups is the equivalent of having a "beta tape" on the shelf.

As for the requirements of the networks, etc. who still want a D5 tape, this is all based on union labor, whose 55 year old morons refuse to learn anything, and it's easier for management to say "send us a tape" as opposed to retraining these guys. Do you think that if a network facility or TV station had all guys under 30, that anyone would actually say "send me a Beta SP tape" ? Being 56 years old myself, I can tell you that these idiots at the TV stations have died, but no one has told them that they died, and they are still alive only because the Unions prevent them from getting fired.
