Maxell Introduces Groundbreaking Holographic Recording Technology



Up to 1.6-terabytes (or 1,600 1638-gigabytes for those who can’t count) and transfer rates reaching 120 MBPS (megabytes, not bits!), Maxell’s latest holographic technology is a real breakthrough in optical media.

Made possible together with InPhase Technologies, each of these 5¼-inch disks can hold as much data as 63 DVDs. It offers a 50+ years of archive life and is expected to have the lowest cost per gigabyte compared to any other commercial removable storage in the current market.

“Combining high storage densities and fast transfer rates with durable, reliable, low cost media, Holographic technology is poised to become a compelling choice for next-generation storage and content distribution needs,” said Liz Murphy, vice president of marketing for InPhase Technologies. “Unlike other technologies that record one data bit at a time, holography allows a million bits of data to be written and read in parallel with a single flash of light. This enables transfer rates significantly higher than current optical storage devices.”



The first generation of this holographic media will come in only 300-gigabytes of storage capacity, and with a 20 MBPS transfer rate. Scheduled for release in late 2006, this will be one thing pr0n collectors optical storage fanatics will want to look out for.

although i think that it would mainly be used for business's for backing up mass amounts of data... or i guess if you have tons of video you could save to it...

Re: Maxell Introduces Groundbreaking Holographic Recording Technology

Oh man, that is going to be my next drive. Should be on the market in time for the next PC I build for myself.
I have a 40gb main (c with 13gb of room left, and a new 250gb split into two drives for my photography, games, and music. So far I have filled about 30gb of that one. I rip every CD to my PC, I am an avid gamer and beta test lots more. All my digital photos shots are 2000-4000kb each so those add up fast as well.


A simple being in a complex world.
