The Sony AIT (Advanced Intelligent Tape) format is intelligently engineered to stand apart - no other tape cartridge features both an MIC chip (the brains) and a pure metal magnetic layer designed for maximum capacity and longevity (the brawn).
MIC (Memory in Cassette)- The AIT cartridges feature a built-in flash memory chip that stores directory and operational information. The result is rapid access to desired data and greatly reduced loading and ejection times.
DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) Coating- The tape surface is protected by a smooth carbon coating that is nearly as hard as diamond and 20 times harder than metal oxides. The benefit is maximum reliability and life. Native Capacity: 50 GB Compressed Capacity: 130 GB Memory Chip: 64k Length: 230 m Mfgr Product ID: Sony SDX2-50C (SDX250C)
