Sony's LTO 3 tape cartridges feature a storage capacity of 400GB native (800GB compressed) and transfer rate of 80MB/second native (160MB/second compressed). Sony's LTO 3 cartridges represent the highest performance in the LTO category of products. Armed with A3MP technology, superior tracking stability and an ultrasonically welded shell, Sony LTO 3 maximizes your data protection.

High-density recording with low error rate
Sony raised the S/N ratio further to optimize performance for high-density recording using MR heads. Output is boosted and noise reduced by employing the latest weather-resistant ultrafine magnetic material with high packing density on a newly designed base film surface featuring improved smoothness.

Back surface design and lubricant
Reduced tape thickness is one of the keys to attaining higher storage capacity in the LTO3 cartridge. To assure tape travel stability and optimum winding with this thinner tape, Sony reassessed the back surface design and adopted a specialized lubricant.

Reduced critical tracking errors
The dedicated servo writer that Sony developed for the LTO format provides a high-quality magnetic servo signal, which complements the enhanced performance of the tape itself. The result is significantly improved data writing and reading accuracy.
