Hello: 

Someone asked me the estimated lifespan of different media formats. 
 
While I realize that the anticipated life of a media format is only as
good as the lifespan of the technology to play the fomat, I am wondering
if anyone has come across any information that provides a guesstimate
for the anticipated lifespan of the following formats: 
 
LTO5 
Digital Betacam
FireWire Drive 
 
Thank you, 
Lance Watsky
