At NAB2004, TDK introduced its DAT 72 data cartridge, the fifth-generation data cartridge incorporating DDS technology to provide 36GB storage capacity (72GB using compression), with a maximum transfer rate of 3.5MB/s (7MB/s using compression).
DAT 72 drives are also backwards compatible with DDS-3 and DDS-4 cartridges. This versatility makes the highly compact DAT 72 cartridge (2.9- x 2.2- x .42-inch) ideal for a wide variety of installations.
The cartridge incorporates an ultra-fine, proprietary Super Finavinx metal particle magnetic tape formulation and a high-density recording layer with extremely high saturation magnetization capability, enabling the DAT 72 format’s short-wavelength data signals to be recorded.
