Sweet new backup media


Finally a way to store all the missionary pictures and slide shows without running out of HD space.  Of course, if you were ever subject to a 1.6 terabyte missionary slide show you may curse the day this new media was ever released!

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 5 1/4 inch-diameter optical disc can store up to 150 million pages– more than 63 times the capacity of DVD, the companies claim.

Also, with holographic recording, a multiple of form factors, such as discs, cards, and laser wavelengths (red, green, and blue) can be used.

The companies plan to bring holographic media to market by Sept. 2006.
