Toshiba Backs Holographic Storage Technology

Toshiba may be feeling the pressure over the HD-DVD / Blu-Ray saga,
but they are already looking to the future and the next (next)
generation of optical storage.

start-up developing the Holographic Versatile Disc (HVD) that could
eventually replace HD-DVD or Blu-Ray and provide 1 terabyte of

However, Optware are starting more conservatively and plan 100-200GB
discs for 2006 or 2007.

future of optical storage.
