Isn't it "only" 1.485 Gb/sec, which is "only" 185.625 MB/sec?
Still a daunting data rate, but do-able with a disk array, and I
would think with a properly designed tape machine.
To be appropriate for broadcasting, what would disqualify
something like a D5 with a bigger drum and wider tape? After all,
if a D5 works with only 4:1 compression, it isn't that far away
to start with.
