Pagination or Media Count:
A tape format is proposed which will facilitate reduction of tape storage to one-twentieth that of the line image format now in use. This station blocking arrangement will decrease access time by a factor in excess of 100. The format was designed to be used with a binary computer and is specifically adapted to 48-bit word computers such as the CDC-1600 and 3000 series. Author
