UJIFILM Recording Media U.S.A., Inc., a division of Fujifilm Corporation, will be one of the first

manufacturers in the world to be certified by the Linear Tape-Open (LTO) Technology Provider Com- panies (TPCs) as successfully completing compliance testing. Fujifilm plans to immediately begin mass pro- duction of LTO Ultrium Generation 5 data cartridges. The Fujifilm LTO Ultrium Generation 5 cartridges are available worldwide immediately, and offer a native storage capacity of 1.5 terabytes and native transfer rates up to 140 megabytes per second.

“The advances that Fujifilm has made in its propri- etary NANOCUBIC technology have enabled us to achieve a higher recording density with increased reliability,” said Norio Shibata, President & CEO, Fujifilm Recording Media USA, Inc. “As the need for more capacity continues to steadily increase this

latest generation tape will handle more data while simultaneously reducing the risk of loss of informati- on.”

Fujifilm LTO Ultrium Generation 5 data cartridges will incorporate Fujifilm’s advanced NANOCUBIC thin-film coating process with finer metal particles (78% of previous generation Ultrium data cartridges) and nano-dispersion technology with a new binder system, which allows Fujifilm to achieve higher recor- ding density.
