Ideal for backup applications in small
and medium networks
Ultra compact and affordable
with high capacity.
Sony’s technological expertise and
experience in the DDS format have
made it possible to deliver DAT
technology, featuring one of the
highest recording densities among
tape storage formats. Sony DAT72 &
DAT160 are incredibly small, reliable
and affordable and feature super thin
dual magnetic layer and Helical Scan
technology to achieve data capacities
of up to 160GB compressed. What’s
more, as an experienced manufacturer
of high quality drives and media,
Sony ensures its media are totally
compatible with any DAT hardware for
ultimate performance.
Key features and benefits
> High capacity, tiny cartridge DAT160 is offering an astonishing 80GB native or
160GB compressed data storage capacity from a
minuscule cartridge. Such impressive performance
is achieved by the use of Sony’s outstanding dual
layer coating and helical scan technologies and by
the increase of the linear recording density of the
DAT160 cartridge.
> Excellent reliability and durability
The highly durable HCL (High Cross Linkage)
binder and stable low error rate ensure excellent
tape transport stability and outstanding reliability
through up to 2000 Read/Write cycles. Also, DAT
technology can store data for 30 years*. Lifetime
Guaranteed**.
> Extensive product line-up
Sony is continuously supporting the DDS/DAT
format with a full range of products. Since the
launch of the first DDS generation data cartridge
in 1990, Sony has continued supplying DDS/DAT
cartridges to the market, offering a full line-up
extending from DDS1 to DAT160.
> Total compatibility
Sony DAT160 tape can read & write to any DAT160
drive. Sony DAT72 tape can read & write to any
DAT72 drive and passes all the tests required by the
DAT specification to ensure 100% compatibility with
any DAT drive on the market.

DAT
Helical Scan A Standard in Video Recording
Sony Helical Scan technology has redefined
professional and home video tape recording
performance. The tape is wound at an angle
around the rotary head so that data is recorded
on the tape diagonally, instead of linearly.

Counter-rotating heads
As a result, tape speed is much slower and tape
stress is dramatically reduced. Although tape
speed is slow, head-to-tape speed is much
faster and this allows rapid data transfer.

DDS/DAT technology
To ensure downward compatibility with DDS4
and DAT72 formats, DAT160 format is required to
have higher accuracy, performance and durability.
Developed for the DDS/DAT72 format, the ultrathin dual layer coating technology featured in the
DAT160 cartridge, provides superb durability, which
withstands repeated write/read operations in addition
to offering high output and low noise level in the
high frequency band. Moreover, the cartridge design
technology helps ensure downward compatibility with
DDS4 and DAT72 and provides stable operation and
high reliability.
Dual-layer Ultra-thin Coating
Sony DAT media features a dual-layer coating of
ultra-thin magnetic and nonmagnetic layers to give
exceptional magnetic-layer thickness of 0.15 μm for
DAT72 and 0.18 μm for DAT160 or less in the upper
layer. These ultra-thin magnetic layers increase signal
output and decrease noise in the high frequency
range for even higher density recording. The nonmagnetic layer enhances the smoothness of the tape surface for higher stability and durability in tape transport.
Lower Layer
Keeping drive heads clean is essential. The Sony
DGD15CL Cleaning Tape is designed for use
with all DDS and DAT72 drives. Tape thickness
has been reduced and head wear minimized to
make it ideally suited for the DDS3, DDS4, and
DAT72 drives and ensure the best possible headcleaning performance. It provides approximately
50 cleanings and is recommended for use every
25 hours of operation (depending on the drive).

well as optical discs like MO, Blu-ray,
DVD and CD – all to the same demanding
standards for absolute performance and
reliability. Businesses and consumers get
the widest choice of storage solutions
from a single supplier. And with the
backing of Sony technical support and
time-saving services like pre-labelling,
the answer is clear: whether you need
archival, backup or file transfer, trust Sony
with your data.
