The promise of using volume holography to deliver high performance optical storage systems is at hand. The possibility of extremely large storage capacities and fast transfer rates make holographic storage ideal for high performance video applications. An overview of advances at InPhase Technologies toward the first drive product is presented. InPhase Technologies is developing a holographic recordable optical drive and associated disk media for professional archive applications. The target user capacity for the first product is 300GB of user data with sustained write and read user transfer rates of 20MByte/s. The architecture, design and implementation of the holographic drive are described here.© (2006) COPYRIGHT SPIE--The International Society for Optical Engineering.
