DAT72 DATA CARTRIDGE
Sony’s ultra-thin coating technology packs
72GB into one DAT72 cartridge.
Huge capacity per tiny cartridge
The high areal recording density of DAT72 results from
Sony’s outstanding dual-layer coating and helical scan
technologies. Each miniscule cartridge brings you huge data
storage capacity of up to 36GB native or 72GB compressed.
Certified by Hewlett-Packard
The Sony DAT72 Cartridge (DGDAT72) passes HewlettPackard’s strict qualification test requirements for assured
performance in DAT72 drives.
DAT72 DATA CARTRIDGE
Leading dual-layer ultra-thin coating
Sony DAT72 media features a dual-layer coating comprising an ultra-thin
magnetic layer and a nonmagnetic layer. The ultra-thin magnetic layer
raises output and reduces noise even in the high frequency range
essential for high-density recording. The nonmagnetic layer creates
a smooth surface to support tape travel stability and durability.
Sony’s original coating technology makes possible a magnetic
layer of 0.15µm or less, one of the thinnest in its class.

Cleaning Cartridge
Excellent reliability
The chart shows results for repeated write/read 36GB (native)
backup testing using the full length of a Sony DAT72 (DGDAT72)
cartridge. Under these severe conditions simulating actual use,
Sony DAT72 media maintains an extremely stable low error rate
to assure outstanding reliability.
Cleaning cartridge
Sony’s DGD15CL cleaning cartridge was developed to maximize
cleaning effectiveness while minimizing potential head wear.
Already proven in the previous generations of DDS drives, this
cleaning cartridge can also be used with confidence in DAT72 drives.
