Re: [AV Media Matters] Digitizing Audio and Video-ReallyBigPost
While I'm speaking mostly from information provided by Sony, the S-AIT
(and I believe the AIT tape) use a "Diamond-like coating" or "DLC" on
read surface of the tape that is also sputtered on after the magnetic
layer. They've done this to protect the magnetic layer.
However, dry is still the operative word for storing ME tapes.
The S-AIT-1 tape I have in front of me has in the box "Recommendations
use...2. operation and storage: Maximum Wet Bulb temperature 76.8F (26C)
Magnetic field: below 4000A/m (or approx 80 gauss)
Extreme changes in temperature and humidity should be avoided whenever

Just curious to know if you have already discussed the fact that AIT is

DAT is in a world by itself so don't compare DAT with DataTapes. I
heard of any problems with LTO, Gold CDs, Gold DVDs, or HDDs made by
the "big three". I believe all of these are reliable.
MO has not been popular because of the pricetag. As a result, there
very many units in use. I do not recommend a format/medium that has a
market-share. Blu-ray will have the same problems as CDs and DVDs but
Blu-rays should be reliable.
Richard Hess mentioned the Sony S-AIT which is a possibility. This is
format so I don't recommend it until it has been in use for a year or
I do not recommend low-density stone carving.
