​Imagine Products Announces myLTO

Imagine Products announces myLTO, a new LTFS copy software from the creators of ShotPut Pro 6 and PreRoll Post.

“This application was created for users who need the speed and security we offer in PreRoll Post without higher end features such as video proxies and a database of your tapes. myLTO looks like ShotPut Pro in terms of copy functions, but adds LTFS compatibility and tape controls,” said Michelle Maddox, marketing director, Imagine Products. “With this software we can cover the needs of users that just need to make tape backups of their assets both in and out of the media and entertainment industry.”

The tool allows users to mount, format and backup to one or more LTO tapes, or to hard drives, simultaneously. Like all applications from Imagine Products, files can be drag and dropped into the queue. Details about each file or volume like the size and number of files automatically populate.

The LTFS application also boasts detailed reports that can be customized to users specific needs. PDF reports, with thumbnails and metadata for all video files can be selected. CSV and TXT reports are also available.

Similar to ShotPut Pro, naming presets can be set up in myLTO and color coded for quick reference and even shared with other myLTO users. Naming options allow nest folders inside one another for better organization.

In the Destination mode, files, folders and volumes can be dragged from the source column to the destination column into pre-existing folders. Switch the interface between light or dark motif to suit your workflow environment.
