An error-correction code, presented here, uses two redundant tracks and one redundant character which are formed from the askew and the vertical redundancy check (AVRC) bits. The error-correction capability of this code is the same as for the ORC Patel and Hong's code, but the encoded codeblock dimension is not subject to constraints.
Askew redundancy check, error-correcting codes, error correcting for magnetic tape, feedback shift register, vertical redundancy check.
