The Sony SDX5-400C AIT-5 Data Cartridge uses an enhanced version of the Advanced Metal Evaporated media technology. Abbreviated as the AME III coating, this technology uses a new technique for applying the magnetic layer onto the tape and a new lubricant. This gives rise to a stable operation, greater durability, high output and a lesser noise than before.

As with the predecessors, the SDX5-400C Data Cartridge is capable of keeping a record of directory and operational information using the R-MIC. It can then use this information to give rapid access to the stored data for reading and writing purposes.

The Sony SDX5-400C Backup Tape is compatible with the AIT-5 tape drive. This benefits users in possession of this drive as they will not have to go out of their way and buy another tape drive just for this tape.

The SDX5-400C AIT-5 Tape has a long archival life of 30 years combined with a reliable tape design. This makes it a good backup solution for small and medium sized businesses.
