AME-III technology - In the AIT format Sony has applied advanced technologies refined and proven over many years. Since the formats debut in 1996, AIT has employed AME (AdvancedMetal Evaporated) tape, and received high acclaim from data storage professionals for the outstanding reliability of its technology.
