Microcassette

From Wikipedia

The microcassette is an audio storage medium introduced by Olympus in 1969. Mainly used for recording voice in dictation and answering machines, it uses the same width of magnetic tape as the standard audio cassette tape, but in a smaller container. It is also used as a medium for computer data storage.

The original microcassette, the MC60, offers 30 minutes of recording per side at its standard speed of 2.4 cm/s (double that duration if recorded at 1.2 cm/s). Unlike the standard audio cassette tape, a choice of recording speeds was provided on many recorders. 15-, 30-, and 90-minute microcassettes are also available from a few manufacturers.
