    Nowadays referred to as DAT and stands for Rotating Digital Audio Tape. A medium for recording digital audio, it uses similar technology to that of a VCR in which a tape passes slowly over fast rotating heads and records information in a helical scan fashion. Due to political machinations, the format never caught on as a consumer medium and was embraced for a while by the professional audio community, only to be replaced by CDR technology.
