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. *Environmental conditions: 23°C, 15-50% relative humidity. ** Terms and conditions apply. www.sonybiz.net/storage-media 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.

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).
