Optware’s 1TB Holographic Versatile Disc

Move over HD-DVD and Bluray, Holographic Versatile Disc is on the way. A consortium of six storage industry corporations aim to offer an optical disc technology capable of storing a full terabyte of data, with transfer rates over one gigabit per second!

The technology behind HVD is based on holography technology from Japan's Optware, one of the six founders of the consortium. A technical committee formed last December to flesh out HVD standards. The first assignments of the technical committee involve coming up with standards for a 200GB recordable disc and a 100GB read-only disc. This is very new technology get ready for the future no more back up hard drives its all on disk baby!!!
