Study Reveals New Findings on Longevity of Legacy Magnetic Audio Tape

"A new study published by CLIR suggests that a type of audio tape commonly used since the 1950s may have greater longevity than previously thought. Researchers from the Library of Congress’s Preservation Research and Testing Division and FUJIFILM Recording Media Products Division did a variety of tests on specific models of open-reel polyester tape produced 10 to 20 years ago. They concluded that the tapes in their research sample that are playable today and are kept at standard room conditions are likely to be playable for as long as 100 years into the future."
