Sony ODC1500R overview

  • 1Description

The 1.5TB Write-Once Optical Disc Cartridge from Sony works with the Sony Optical Disc Archive (ODA) drive unit to offer an alternative to LTO or traditional forms of data tape for long-term archiving of valuable assets.

Low Total Cost of Ownership
Sony optical disc cartridges are designed and manufactured to extremely high specifications, offering very fast random access to all content and files. The innovative drive design provides for a "dual channel" capability. Being file format independent, the cartridge can store your assets in a data file format. The system is ideal for a wide range of deep archive requirements as well as near-online news and sports clips that require fast and random access to any files on the disc. Optical disc complements and co-exists in an established data tape archive strategy.
Ideal for Deep Archive and Near-Online Archive
The Sony ODA system is ideal for deep archive to achieve long-term archive requirements, such as broadcast archives, where data tape does not provide the assurance or meet the need for write-once, long-term archive requirements. It provides second copy archive at a remote site and is ideal for business continuity/disaster recovery, post house and production backup and for video, film and stock footage archives or national archives. The system can also be used for news and sports clips that need to be near-online and as an online browse and proxy clip store.
Reliable and Robust Storage with a Very Long Archive Life
Optical disc media is robust and reliable with a very long shelf life, offering a guaranteed 50+ years archive life. The optical disc cartridge is resilient to temperature extremes, humidity, dust and water.
Backwards Read Compatibility with Future Generations
There are no backwards compatibility issues and no second-generation media migration is necessary, as the optical disc cartridge will maintain backwards read compatibility with future optical disc drives.
File Format Independent
Files are written as data and any kind of data format can be archived for increased flexibility. Furthermore, the system is UDF compatible.
Reduces Environmental Storage Cost
Optical disc cartridges significantly reduce total cost of ownership over their extended archive life because of their minimal environmental storage demands.
Offline Media Management by Cartridge Memory (CM)
Basic metadata can be stored on the Cartridge Memory to make it easier to locate data files.
Fast Access to Data Files
Using an IT file data structure means data files can be accessed directly and randomly for flexibility and faster search capabilities. This function offers significant speed benefits over LTO tape for accessing short clips and allows the ODA system to work as near-line archive for production systems, as well as deep archive for the long term.

    1.5TB Write-Once Optical Disc Cartridge is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best way to backup ! I've been in high end television production for many years .. And I must admit that one of the most difficult processes is a way to backup and retrieve all your raw material in an easy and cost effective way .. That also is safe and reliable . I've at DLT , DLT4 , LTO , Ait and various FireWire drives labelled and on the shelf ... When Sony real see ODS recently .. I was an early adopter .. After about 6 months of software and firmware updates .. Finally I think I have found the holy graal of backups... This system is phenomenal .. Finally a way to not only safely backup all my raw and master material .. But also with Contnent Manager .. You have the best way to find and search all your raw material instantly !! I buy lots of these drives and they are well worth it !!
