DAT which is abbreviated as Digital Audio Tape is used to reduce the gap between low level tape drives which includes Travan and high level products which includes DLT.
The digital audio tape is primarily used as server attached storage for backup.
The digital audio tape is cost effective than disk technology when it comes to cost per gigabyte, and it is the most reliable way to prevent data corruption from digital code viruses.

  Digital Audio Tape - Definition, explanation
DAT tapes longer than 60 meters tend to be problematic in DAT recorders due to the thinner media.
DAT was not the first digital audio tape; an early form known as pulse-code modulation (PCM) was used in Japan to produce analog phonograph records in the early 1970s using a videotape recorder for its transport, but it was not developed into a consumer product.
Modern DAT has not been very popular outside of professional and semi-professional music artists, although the prospect of perfect digital copies of copyrighted material was sufficient for the music industry in the US to force the passage of the Audio Home Recording Act of 1992, the so-called DAT Tax.

 tape recorder - Encyclopedia.com
tape recorder device for recording information on strips of plastic tape (usually polyester) that are coated with fine particles of a magnetic substance, usually an oxide of iron, cobalt, or chromium.
In audio recorders, the sound to be recorded is picked up by a device such as a microphone, and transformed into an electric current.
The current is fed to a transducer in the recording head of the tape recorder, which converts it into corresponding magnetic flux variations that magnetize the particles on the tape.

 AllRefer.com - Digital Audio Tape Information
Digitally recorded audio tape produced in cassettes that can carry up to two hours of sound on each side and are about half the size of standard cassettes.
DAT machines are constructed like video cassette recorders (though they use metal audio tape), with a movable playback head, the tape winding in a spiral around a rotating drum.
By 1990, DATs for computer data had been developed to a capacity of around 2.5 gigabytes per tape, achieved by using helical scan recording (in which the tape covers about 90% of the total head area of the rotating drum).

The south pole of the tape is attracted by the north pole of the magnet, and repelled by a south pole.
The south pole suddenly attracts the tape &emdash; which it had been repelling&emdash; when the magnetic field of the magnet becomes strong enough to re-magnetize the tape, creating a north pole where a south pole had been.

 Audio Technologies - History of Recordings   (Site not responding. Last check: )
But digital recording and optical playback technologies were being refined in the lab, promising a profound departure from the past.
With digital recording, however, the amplitude of the original waveform is sampled at regular intervals (tens of thousands of times per second), and numeric values are assigned to those samples, which in turn are transmitted or stored as binary code.
The digital code of sampled sound is stored on disc as a series of non-reflective "pits" in an otherwise reflective surface (the "land"), and is read by a laser pickup.

 DAT Heads FAQ
DAT records up to 120 minutes of uninterrupted music on a tape which is 2/3 the size of a cassette.
One of the biggest advantages of digital audio is that many performance parameters that are difficult to achieve in analog machines are perfected beyond the point of measurability in digital machines.
People taping outside of the taper section are not complying with the artist's wishes and also risk being shut down, having their tapes confiscated, having their equipment held or confiscated, being thrown out of the concert, being arrested, sued, etc. The taper section offers some distinct advantages to the taper.

 Compact Discs   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The DAT tape sounded much better than the old, analog cassette tape and therefore musicians found it easier to record from a DAT than an analog audio tape.
The DAT is merely a copy of the analog tape that digitally represents the sound, which means that binary data, zeroes and ones, are being read off the tape.
The DAT tape is 2 times smaller than a traditional cassette tape and uses something called a helical scan to record data.

 Digital audio tape recorder and music program jump selecting method thereof - Patent 5121269
In general, when a cassette is placed in a DAT to reproduce or record a program, the TOC information written in the subcode region of the first program recorded o the tape is automatically read, and thereafter a search, etc., is performed at a high speed based on the read TOC information.
However, in a conventional DAT, when a new cassette is loaded, the TOC information is automatically read irrespective of the state of a tab provided for preventing the unintentional erasure of the cassette.
In this embodiment, the tape recorder has the same general construction as that of a conventional DAT, but further includes an erasure-preventing tab detector 21 for detecting the open and closed states of a tab for preventing inadvertent erasure of the cassette.

DAT decks sample with a 16-bit resolution, meaning 16 individual ones or zeroes are used to represent one sample.
DAT is also relatively free from the noise problems associated with analog tape.
As the magnetic oxide flakes off of the tape, the DAT deck becomes incapable of reading the data, and produces a noise somewhere in between an explosion and someone scraping their fingernails on a chalkboard.

 Product Review - SONY PCM-R500 Digital Audio Tape (DAT) Cassette Deck with SBM - June, 1997
DAT recorders place the audio signal on the tape in the form of 1s and 0s (digital bits), just like on CDs, and you have the choice of recording in exactly the same sampling frequency (44.1 kHz) and word length (16 bits) as CDs, along with some other choices if you wish.
Running the digital out from the Sony R500 through both the A.A. jitter filter and the D/A processor provided a very subtle gain in transparency, but with most music the differences between that and the direct analog-out feed of the Sony were negligible.
For example, when making multiple cassette dubs from DAT masters (the best of them on a Dolby S cassette deck), I run the R500's analog out directly into the dubbing bus rather than using the filter and processors in the chain; the difference would not be heard on the final cassette playback anyway.

In conventional video and audio tape recorders, the heads place an electromagnetic representation of light and sound waves directly onto the tape.
Tape damage that would be heard as just an annoying hiss or pop on a standard analog machine would be inter- preted as a number on a DAT system, which could translate that number into, say, unwanted forte in the middle of a delicate pianissimo.
DATs would permit duplications of unparalleled quality, but audio equipment companies claim to have made digital-to-digital duping impossible: the sampling rate at which DATs record isn't the same as those of CDs and pre-recorded DAT tapes.
