MIC (Memory-In-Cassette) provides an innovative interface between drive and cartridge to enable extremely fast data access, while AME tape material allows high storage density without compromising on reliability.

Available in kits featuring TapeCopy software that will migrate data seamlessly from virtually any tape format to AIT, you can be sure that Sony can provide a storage solution tailored to your needs.
