Finally there are definitive words about holographic storage medias. Maxell made a press release today of it’s upcoming 300 GByte holographic medias – yeah!
“With uncompressed storage capacities achieving 1.6 TeraBytes per disk and data rates as high as 120 MBPs.”
“One 5¼ inch-diameter optical disc can store up to 150 million pages – more than 63 times the capacity of DVD. Also, with holographic recording, a multiple of form factors, such as discs, cards, etc., and laser wavelengths (red, green, and blue) can be used. “
“The first generation of holographic media with 300 GB of storage capacity and a 20 MBPs Transfer Rate is scheduled for release in late 2006.”
