First Public Demonstration Of Holographic Drive

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 11:04 am

InPhase Technologies, announced that it will conduct a public demonstration of the world’s first prototype of a commercial holographic storage device using video clips provided by Turner Entertainment Networks. The demonstration of the InPhase Tapestry™ drive will be conducted with Hitachi Maxell at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) convention in Las Vegas, April 18 through April 21, at the Maxell Corporation of America booth #C8530 in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center. Maxell Corporation of America is a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi Maxell. The prototype is the foundation for a 300 gigabyte (GB) drive that can store more than 35 hours of broadcast-quality high-definition video on a single disk. The family of InPhase Tapestry holographic drives will have capacities that range to 1.6 terabytes (TB) on a single disk.

A breakthrough in data storage, the InPhase prototype demonstrates a new generation of data storage, well beyond magnetic and optical formats, which capitalizes on the company’s leadership position in both holographic drive and media development. InPhase has created a new class of photopolymers, and the delivery of a stable recording device, to achieve a working commercial holographic system. The initial commercial units will be delivered to original equipment manufacturer (OEM) customers in 2006.

InPhase has architected an advanced technique, polytopic recording, which provides greater data density by overlaying “books” of data, rather than pages of data. The InPhase polytopic technique eliminates the space between books of data, thereby increasing data densities. This innovative technique will be implemented in all generations of the InPhase Tapestry product family.
