AIT Tape

Advanced Intelligent Tape

High capacity, high speed (and higher cost) tape storage developed by Sony. The interesting thing about this technology is that the tape media has an EEPROM in it that stores information about the tape contents, the number of times the tape has been used and other useful info that can be queried without ever moving the tape itself.

Another point in favor is high levels of compatibility between AIT versions.

However, Sony is no longer producing these, so it apparently ended at AIT-5 (which is compatible with AIT-3, AIT-3Ex, and AIT-4).
