The new TapeMaster-TX clones your tapes at extremely fast speeds efficiently and effortlessly. Simply insert your write-protected master and one or more write-enabled new blank tapes, then select Clone mode and your tapes will be duplicated at blazing speeds of up to 2TB/hr. At these speeds and with such ease of use, you no longer need to fiddle with deficient off-the-shelf software or tie up your server for days in order to get copies of the LTO tapes you need now.

Diagnostic Operation

TapeMaster-TX comes with a built-in self-diagnostic feature that checks system components and verifies all are in working order and can be run whenever the system is not processing a job.

LTO Tape Forensic Duplication

The standalone TapeMaster-XT LTO Ultrium duplication device gives the Computer Digital Forensic Investigator the ability to make perfect copies of any suspect LTO tape at extremely fast speeds. This system will only clone if your master tapes are write-protected which is a must for any investigator.
