DAT

(Redirected From Digital Audio Tape)

From Chace Audio

DAT (Digital Audio Tape) is a digital audiocassette format developed by Sony in the mid 1980s. DATs can record and playback two channels of 16-bit digital audio @ 44.1 or 48 kHz. This format is similar in design to the compact audiocassette, with the tape spooled between two reels enclosed in a plastic shell, but is only half the size of its older analog cousin. The DAT format supports time code – a feature that made it a useful medium for film production and post production. DATs should not be considered as an option for long-term archival storage, however, as they are susceptible to high error rates that cause dropouts, pops, and other digital anomalies as they age.
