AIT-5 Media uses the new AME III coating. This technology improves upon its predecessor, AME II, with a new method for applying the magnetic layer to the tape, an enforced coating layer and a newly developed lubricant for stable operation. AME III media realizes high output and low noise through an improved metal evaporated method, resulting in smaller magnetic particles and a smoother tape that minimizes the spacing loss between the magnetic head and the magnetic layer.

R-MIC (Remote Memory in Cassette) - The AIT-2, 3, 3Ex, 4 and 5 cartridges feature a non-contact flash memory chip that stores directory and operational information allowing for rapid access to desired data and greatly reduced loading and ejection times
