InPhase Demos Holographic Storage for Video -- 300GB on 5" Disk

InPhase Technologies will demonstrate its Tapestry holographic recording system at an event this week in Studio City, California. Its holographic storage product, the InPhase Tapestry 300r, holds 300 GB in a write-once read-only (WORM) configuration. The drive stores the data on a single 5 ¼-inch disc, at a transfer rate of 20 megabytes per second (MB/s), or 160 megabits per second (Mb/s). InPhase is quoting a 50-year media archive life.
