Micropolis AV drives are equipped with Micropolis' own "ATC" (Advanced Thermal Calibration) technology, designed for audio/video applications where data streams have to maintain specific data rates at all time, even under thermally challenging situations. ATC ensures the even in "worst case" drive situations, I/O times remain to be less than 30ms, enabling a drop-out free vdieo playout.
