Digital Linear Tape. A magnetic tape storage device used in the backup of large amounts of data. The tape cartridges can store from 20 to 40 GB of data and has a transfer rate of 6 MB/sec. The DLT system was improved to super DLT (S-DLT) which has a maximum storage of 110 GB with a transfer rate of 11 MB/sec. See Advanced Intelligent Tape (AIT), Digital Audio Tape (DAT), Digital Versatile Disk (DVD), Linear Tape Open (LTO), Jukebox, and Magneto Optical Disk (MOD).
Digital Linear Tape, the tape format used to transfer pre-mastered DVD data for glass mastering.
A technology designed by DEC and sold to Quantum used for backing up huge amounts of data (up to 35 GB per tape without compression, 70 GB with compression)....
Digital Linear Tape: a half-inch wide magnetic tape backup technology originally developed by Digital Equipment Corporation and which has grown rapidly since its acquisition by Quantum Corporation in 1994.
Shortened form for Digital Linear Tape. A data storage system that uses tape-based serpentine recording to cartridges that offer 40GB capacities. DLT is one of the preferred methods for submitting files for DVD replication.
A tape technology developed by HP that has been superseded by SDLT.
Digital Linear Tape. A linear digital tape format used to master DVDs for duplication.
Digital Linear Tape. A popular 1/2" tape cartridge format developed by DEC originally as CompacTape. It iscurrently manufactured under license by Quantum.
digital linear tape, a fairly new high end tape format. Capacities range up to 35 gigabytes.
Digital Linear Tape is a form of magnetic tape and drive system used for computer data storage and archiving.
Digital Linear Tape. A digital archive standard using half-inch tapes, commonly used for submitting a premastered DVD disc image to a replication service.
Digital Linear Tape. Replicator's preferred source media for DVD projects, generally with a capacity between 10 and 40 gigabytes.
Digital Linear Tape (1/2" streaming tape)
Short for Digital Linear Tape, a type of magnetic tape storage device. DLTs are half an inch wide and the cartridges come in several sizes ranging from 20 to over 40 GB. DLT drives are faster than most other types of tape drives, achieving transfer rates of 2.5 MBps.
Digital Linear Tape is an acronym for a Digital Equipment Corp. Technology and later sold to Quantum Corp.
Digital Linear Tape. A serpentine technology first introduced by Digital Equipment Corporation and later developed by Quantum for tape backup/archive of networks and servers. DLT technology addresses midrange to high-end tape backup requirements.
Digital Linear Tape: A recording medium consisting of a tape cartridge containing a supply reel and a quantity of magnetic tape.
Digital Linear Tape A magnetic tape technology originally developed by Digital for its VAX line. The technology was later sold to Quantum, which makes it available to other manufacturers. DLT uses half-inch, single-hub cartridges somewhat like IBM's 3480/3490/3590 line. It writes 128 or 208 linear tracks, depending on model, and provides capacities from 10 to 35GB. DLT usage started to grow rapidly in 1995 and has been widely used on medium to large-scale LANs. SuperDLT increases capacity from 35 to 50GB and transfer rate from 5 to 10MB per second. SuperDLT capacities of 500GB and speeds of 40MB per second are expected in the future.
Acronym for igital inear ape, a very popular high speed, high capacity tape technology used for data backup.
Digital Linear Tape Drive (DLT) provides a very fast (800 Kbytes per second) back-up to tape cartridges that hold either 20 gigabytes or 40 gigabytes of data and can be mounted in an automated library that holds enough cartridges to back up 5.2 terabytes of data
or Digital Linear Tape - A kind of magnetic tape drive originally developed by DEC and now marketed by Quantum. DLT drives implement the Digital Lempel Ziv 1 (DLZ1) compression algorithm in a combination of hardware and firmware. They use a popular chip by Stac (now hi/fn) to do the string searching. Counting, sorting and Huffman encoding are done in firmware (with hardware support for the Huffman algorithm?)
Digital Linear Tape. A type of 1/2" wide magnetic tape used for backup.
Or Digital Linear Tape. DLT is a well-established SCSI magnetic tape medium which has become the de facto mastering standard. It is a robust format with data capacity of up to 20GB. DLT is used as a direct input in the glass mastering process at DVD replication facilities.
Digital Linear Tape. The current standard media used as a DVD production master for delivery to the pressing plant, it is a tape format similar to exabyte but with a much faster transfer rate and greater storage capacity.
Digital Linear Tape. High-storage tape (type III or type IV, 10–20 Gb) used to create DVD masters.
