Towards the Future

Traditional VLBI recording onto tape has some well-known drawbacks in terms of logistical turn-around, playback reliability, hardware/media cost and availability, etc. The shift to disk-based recording (Mk5) and data transmission via fibre (e-VLBI) should lead to marked improvements. In this section, we'll briefly discuss recent activity in these areas at JIVE.
