Advanced-Design Thunderbolt 3 Enabled Tape Storage

SymplyDIT LTO is a unique full-featured archive and transfer system designed specifically for on-set and DIT use with features that can enhance every production and post-production pipeline. SymplyDIT LTO is based on Symply's advanced desktop SymplyPRO LTO product line that features a rugged metal alloy enclosure and premium whisper-quiet fan and power supply technology, but benefits from unique multi-access technology that combines docking support for Atomos media along with any 2.5” SSD media for fast all-in-one DIT operations.

Unlike others, this is not a re-purposed LTO IT system or highly-design-compromised tape product. The SymplyDIT LTO was designed by working with media professionals and hearing their needs and wants. We took what they asked for, added high-quality components and SymplyDIT LTO was born. Configurations are available with either LTO-7 or LTO-8 tape drives offering read/write speeds up to 300 MB/sec and include two Thunderbolt 3 ports for device daisy chaining, with one port providing 60 watts for fast device charging. SAS Expansion and SAS host connectivity is also built-in, just in case you need to connected other SAS device(s) to your Thunderbolt computer, or use the device with a non-Thunderbolt workstation.

SymplyDIT LTO configurations feature Linear Tape File System (LTFS) support. Allowing simple drag and drop file operation similar to a conventional hard drive. LTFS can reduce the need for backup or archive software, and allows users to easily interchange data using LTO cartridges or copying data to and from hard disk drives or SSDs.

SymplyATOM (Advanced Tape Operations and Management) is a feature rich software application includes with SymplyDIT LTO that makes operation and maintenance easy. SymplyDIT LTO systems are also certified for use with popular backup and archive utilities for macOS and Windows including YoYotta, Hedge Canister, XenData, and Archiware P5.

If you are looking for a competitive edge to help you meet tight production deadlines or just want to make on-set production and post-production more efficient, you should consider SymplyDIT LTO.
