QIC-Wide was a variant of QIC Minicartridge that used wider 8mm (0.315 inch) tape along with increased recording density, in a shell with the same dimensions as the QIC Minicartridge. It was introduced by Sony in 1994.
Like the QIC Minicartridge, the main market was personal computer and client/server network backups. QIC-Wide tapes had a capacity of up to 4 GB (compressed).
QIC-Wide drives were backwards-compatible with some other QIC tapes such as Travan and QIC Minicartridge.
