HOLOGRAPHIC INFORMATION STORAGE

DO WE NEED MORE CAPACITY ?


In 2002, around 500 million optical drives and 13 billion disks were sold. In 2002, approx. 5 Exa-bytes (1EB = 1018 bytes) of unique information per year were produced, equivalent to 800 megabytes for every man, woman, and child on earth. Digital storage requirements growing at roughly 100% per annum; Development towards an all digital era.

HOLOGRAPHIC INFORMATION STORAGE


WHY STANDARDIZE HOLOGRAPHIC INFORMATION STORAGE Currently numerous enterprises - small, medium and very large

are developing and commercializing Holographic Information Storage (HIS) products, with first products are planned for market introduction next year (2005) and are currently undergoing testing. Because many of the applications for these products require the portability of stored information between information processing systems and across multiple platforms, the information stored by holographic means, on dynamic and/or static mediums, must be both removable and interchangeable. The important task of finalizing certain design features for Holographic Information Storage products, which assure portability and interchangeability, and simultaneously evolving industry-wide consensus for those design features, is best accomplished through the structured process of formal standardization involving critical and focused peer review and finalization.
