PreRoll Post™ is an application that automates indexing your camera originals, complete with thumbs, proxies and metadata, while backing up full resolution media to local disk and long-term LTO tapes, Optical Disc or local disk or server.
The software takes advantage of the Linear File Transfer System (LTFS) developed by IBM and supported by HP, MagNext, mLogic, Quantum, Tandberg and other tape drive manufacturers. LTFS mounts a tape as a volume (hard disk) within OSX. This makes it possible to write and read from the tape as if it were a disk without proprietary software or formatting. It also makes PreRoll Post hardware independent—you can use it with any LTFS compliant tape drive or Sony Optical Disc Archive (ODA).
