FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Shigehiro Nakajima) announced that in conjunction with IBM, a new record in areal data density of 123 billion bits per square inch on linear magnetic particulate tape has been achieved.

DELUXE SYDNEY MANAGES THE WOLVERINE WITH FUJIFILM LTO TAPE

State of the art post production facility Deluxe Sydney recently completed Hugh Jackman’s The Wolverine undertaking data management and dailies production. A significant part of this project involved using Fujifilm LTO tape for archive, storage and secure data management.

Deluxe EFILM’s Sydney Onset Data Manager Simon Alberry explained, “LTO is a prerequisite for the major Hollywood studios and bond agents for the archiving of camera raw data during production. Once we were awarded The Wolverine contract for data management and dailies production we went to work customising our proven workflow to the client’s production needs and incorporating industry best practice methods for data workflow and data security - this included the option to archive to LTO-5 onset.
