NetBackup and tape compression types

As a sequel to my earlier question on SAIT tapes, I would want to know what media types would fit into the 8MM, 8MM2 & 8MM3 genre of media types?

Please also let me know if the media piece compression type any of the following, how would NetBackup identify it?
1) LTO-3
2) AIT-4
3) T3592

I need this information at the earliest;

Thanks a great deal in advance,

2) AIT-4 = 8MM
3) T3592 = not sure. I think HCART
4) SAIT = 8MM

These are identifiers to relate media to device so they can be for example HCART, HCART2 or HCART3 as long as the device type matches the media type.

For LTO tapes and if u using barcode label, NBU will assign based on the barcode media identifier.
L1 - hcart
L2 - hcart2
L3 - hcart3
