8 mm Wide Magnetic Tape Cartridge for
Information Interchange - Helical Scan Recording - DA-2 Format
2nd edition (June 1998)
This Ecma Standard specifies the physical and magnetic characteristics
of a 8 mm wide magnetic tape cartridge to enable physical interchange
of such cartridges between drives. It also specifies the quality
of the recorded signals, the recording method and the recorded
format, thereby allowing data interchange between drives by means
of such magnetic tape cartridges.
Information interchange between systems also requires, at a minimum,
agreement between the interchange parties upon the interchange
code(s) and the specifications of the structure and labelling
of the information on the interchanged cartridge.
