Holographic Storage Promises 1 TB Per DiscBy Iain Thomson VNUNet 01/06/05 9:15 AM PT Holographic compression is made possible by splitting a blue laser and using the twin beams of light to store much more data on a disc than is possible using conventional techniques. InPhase is planning a recordable storage device for release in 2006 that stores 200 GB of data with a 20 MB per second transfer rate, enough for 14 hours of high-quality video. A newly developed computer storage medium released today promises to potentially offer more than a terabyte of storage on a single disc. Dubbed holographic storage, the technique allows greatly increased data storage and was first proposed in the 1960s. Now U.S. company InPhase Technologies claims to have built the first media capable of storing data holographically, and is shipping the Tapestry HDS5000 discs to device developers for testing.
The only easy day was yesterday.
