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.''

"Holographic recording technology utilizes intersecting signal and reference laser beams to store data in a number of 3D hologram images capable of saving hundreds of data pages in a single location. 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."

WELL WHAT CAN I SAY! Great!

Amazing! A replacement for many things! If the price is right...

Well, it did say this:
'Finally, the media is expected to have the lowest cost per gigabyte of any commercial quality removable storage.'

But no real price...

My guess, it's the player/recorders that will cost us our rear ends...

I believe the tech is a bit more than a year out from commercialization; however one of the great points about it is that you can read both regular DVDs and Blu-Ray discs with it, if I recall correctly.

Well that would be the way a holograph works - three different colour lasers at slightly different angles fired into a substrate. Information can be recorded as binary, colour (combinaton of colours) and phase shift (what makes them look 3D to us). Taken in combination, that's a large storage density...

No reason why any one of these lasers can't be used independently to read legacy media.

I think this sort of did over ervyone . While it can play blu-eay it will never become the major media format hoped (malking it sort of like beta-max). Also these drives could be expensive costing a xbox owner or pc owner a fortune to buy.
ANyway this is cool but when I first saw the title I though of like Stargate SG-1 type.
But I see a new future for hologrpahic HDD. storeing multi TB of info combined with a faster transfer rate. I have looked into this slightly more and the current compresion tech is very cluter and ineficent. I foresee this number incresing to 2 or even 3 TB in the future. I also know that the military has bean working on this for a while so they might reveal a more adveanced compresion.

clear some things up from what I've read.

A) It is expected in 2007
B) If it is indeed, as daniel guessed, that the drive that will be more expencive, then it is a good thing. The price of drives always comes down steadily, and many times you end up spending far more on the media than the drive itself.
C) No, drives will not play any other media, just look at the form factor.

You can find out more here http://www.research.ibm.com/journal/rd/443/ashley.html

ages ago i heard about a coppany that were working on the follow up to blu ray, that was the same blue lassers but rather then 0's and 1's it could recognise multiple angels and save upto 1 TB on a disk, i dont think this is the same thing, this is even more crazy


WERE LIVING IN THE BLOODY FUTURE

incedently i dont think this will be in compation with blue-ray or HD DVD as it holds so much more storage then you need for a film it would be a waste of money to use it for that, uber fast reading could be very useful for the playstation 4 and xbox 720 (3)

Yeh, just imagnine how realistic they could make the games look with all the space...

Though i imagine bigger firms using this that store larger data for some reason, intially, and im sure sony/microsoft have already begun looking into this storage media, aswell as sorting out problems with Xbox 360....Hmm...

Maybe if they let us test the drives for free, then we'd find a use for them... I couldnt imagine things to be large enough to fill a CD back in 1999, then came the DVD, which i still seem to find to be quite big, and now Blu-ray and HD-DVD... They found some use for them so i imagine they'll find some use for this... I imagine..

it will definetly become a HDD since it can store huge amounts as opposed to disks.
