....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."
