Both the linear and helical scan
tape drives and the disk drive keep an accurate record of the location of data on the recorded media.
The physical properties of MP media were quite attractive to meet the demands of DDS helical scan
Normally, helical scan
drives keep very close control of the tape in the tape path.
Recording Technology - Helical scan
recording technologies, based on a very stable rotating drum/head platform, permit accurate and reliable data recording at very high track densities.
First appearing in 1996, AIT is a compact, helical scan
8MM tape format in a 3.
Evans continued, "Adding LTO media compliments this strategy to provide leading linear tape and helical scan
technologies for a variety of users and applications.
Wide Magnetic Tape Cartridge for Information Interchange - Helical Scan

Products: Track is recorded diagonally in "stripes" across face of longitudinal tape.
Exabyte Corporation (Nasdaq: EXBT), a performance leader in network backup, today announced that Data Storage magazine has released test results proving that the Mammoth-2 (M2(TM)) tape drive has four times the performance of other helical scan
tape drives on the market.
Digital Data Storage (DDS) is a helical scan
format where data is written diagonally across the width of the tape.
