SymplyDIT LTO is a unique full-featured archive and transfer system designed specifically for on-set and DIT use with features that can enhance every production and post production pipeline.


SymplyDIT LTO is based on their advanced desktop SymplyPRO LTO product line featuring a rugged metal alloy enclosure, whisper-quiet fan, and premium power supply. With added multi-access technology that combines docking support for Atomos media along with any 2.5″ SSD for fast all-in-one DIT operations.

Unlike others, this is not a repurposed LTO DIT system or a highly design-compromised tape product. The SymplyDIT LTO was designed by working with media professionals and hearing their needs and wants. We took what they asked for, added high-quality components, and SymplyDIT LTO was born.

Thunderbolt 3 Interface

Each SymplyDIT LTO system includes two Thunderbolt 3 ports for daisy chaining, and fast device charging. They also include a SAS expansion port and SAS host connectivity port in case you need to connected other SAS devices to your Thunderbolt-equipped computer, or use it with a non-Thunderbolt workstation.


All SymplyDIT LTO configurations feature Linear Tape File System (LTFS) support. Allowing simple drag and drop file operation similar to a conventional hard drive. LTFS can reduce the need for backup or archive software, and allows users to easily interchange data using LTO cartridges or copying data to and from hard drives or SSDs.

Storage Capacity

Configurations are available with LTO-7 and LTO-8 half-height drives, and now the latest full height LTO-9 drive with native 18TB raw capacity and read/write speeds of up to 400MB/s. A perfect match for offloading camera cards and SSDs.

  • LTO7 will provide a Native Capacity of 6TB (15TB compressed).
  • LTO8 provides a Native Capacity of 12TB (30TB compressed).
  • LTO9 provides a Native Capacity of 18TB (45TB compressed).


SymplyDIT LTO includes the feature rich SymplyATOM (Advanced Tape Operations and Management) software that makes operation and maintenance easy.
