Another high-density optical media technology in development
Matteris, a two year old Israeli technology company produced by the Technion R&D Foundation's Technology Incubator, is involved in the research and development of a high density storage media and system which can out perform current high-density optical media standards by 20-40x (Blu-ray).
Matteris is working on a holographic medium which will alow over
1 terabyte of data to fit on a single holographic disc
. Some may say this is just another form of holographic digital data storage and we may have agreed with that assumption if it wasn't for the mention of using nano-technology. According to the company's filing description:
MATTERIS has developed a proprietary holographic material with an entirely different concept than that of the commonly used photo-polymers. This novel material, based on nano-materials, is far superior to photo-polymers, offering no need for development (process-less material), no shrinkage, reading between recording sessions, daylight safety, higher capacity and many others.
Matteris is utilizing NanoStorage Technologies' holographic storage technology which is based on nano-materials which allows greater durability of the media and also results in the higher storage capacity and transfer rates.
Aside from the 1 terabyte capacity, Matteris' media in development is said to have transfer speeds upwards in the gigabit/sec range which makes this ideal for many applications such as enterprise datacenter storage or future standards of high-definition audio/video content.
Its hard to say whether this holographic storage technology will see the light of day anytime soon, if at all, but every step in the development process is always a good sign of things to come as far as higher density storage and technological advances.

I swear....we hear about this same 1TB on a DVD using holographic technology twice every year for the past 5 years. When are they going to actually come out with it?

If mainstream HDD's are approaching 1TB when mainstream optical media approaches 1/10 of that number, count on having a 1 TB disk when HDD's at least 10TB - that way, we'll never be able to back up onto a reasonable number of discs. The conspiracy!
