High capacity, high performance
Sony AIT-1 tape drives deliver up to 70 GB capacity (with 2:1 compression) in a compact, 8mm data cartridge. Helical scan technology increases data recording density, while offering fast data transfer rates of up to 6.0 MB/s.

Fast access to data with MIC
The unique Memory-In-Cassette feature of Sony AIT drives, with 64 kB of built-in programmable memory, speeds access to data, providing fast loading (less than 10 seconds) and quick file access (27 to 37 seconds.)

High reliability
Sony AIT tape drives incorporate a redesigned head geometry reducing head/tape pressure and delivering up to 50,000 hours of head life. The built-in Active Head Cleaner mechanism results in an industry leading MTBF rating of 300,000 POH.

Compact form factor
AIT drives offer high capacity in an extremely compact 3.5-inch form factor. With a compact size a fraction of the size of other high capacity tape drive formats, AIT drives are easy to integrate into desktop workstations, servers, and automated tape libraries.

Reduced periodic maintenance
Sony AIT drives incorporate an Active Head Cleaner mechanism activated automatically by the drive mechanism when tape errors approach a certain threshold.
