Sony SDX 300 AIT1 8mm Tape Drive


The SDX-300 and SDX-300C AIT-1 tape drives use Adaptive Lossless Data Compression (ADLC) to achieve a compression ratio of up to 2.6:1 vs. 2:1 for most drives.

Sony’s AIT-1 offers speed and reliability with partial CAV technology; faster average read speeds than comparable 12x CLV drives; higher reliability for data searches and access; and improved readability and a SCSI-2 interface.

AIT-1 Highlights:

  • 70 GB capacity and 6 MB/s sustained data transfer rate (with 2:1 compression)
  • Fast media loading (Less than 10 sec) and file access (27-37 sec)
  • High reliability with MTBF of 300,000 POH, head life of 50,000 hours, and media uses of 30,000 end-to-end passes
  • Efficient data management with Memory In Cassette (MIC)
