AIT and VXA are the primary 8mm data tape formats relied upon by industry professionals for producing portable backup data.
Advanced Intelligent Tape (AIT) was originally created by Sony Corporation, incorporating innovative features such as Advanced Metal Evaporated media and Memory in Cassette, allowing increased durability and decreased access times, respectively.
Developed by Ecrix and Exabyte, VXA introduced helical scan technology, which provides for increased efficiency during error checking and the recording of data on 8mm tape technology.
AIT and VXA are incompatible. Please make certain that the cassettes you wish to order are compatible with your tape drive.
