GE closer to releasing micro-holographic 500GB media.
[newsimage]http://static.rankone.nl/images_posts/2011/07/IlGYqD.jpg[/newsimage]Creating ever-larger optical storage media is both a perpetual goal for technology researchers and an ardent desire of early adopters always eager for the latest and greatest devices. General Electric's Global Research branch revealed this week a "major breakthrough" which the company believes could impact future optical storage development - specifically, the implementation of micro-holographic technology in various consumer electronics.

this was published 2 years ago if i am not mistaken http://tech.blorge.com/Structure:%20/2009/04/28/who-needs-blu-ray-ge-working-on-500gb-micro-holographic-media/
Maybe they can use some holographic measure to clean up the Hudson river they polluted. Nah, they don't have to since they been given a pass cuz they're kissin Obamas Azz
If 500gb is possible on 'normal DVD media' what's possible on blue ray media DL? 4tb? More?
Also, I don't see that size being utilized for anything other than archival, or re-writable disc purposes. Have they been able to translate this technology for use on DVD RW discs as well at blue ray speeds?
This article is a little wrong. Actually it is not a standard DVD but a standard physical size DVD they meant. The new equipment will be backwards compatible with CD, DVD & BD.
So going by the price of BD-DL One has to wonder how expensive H Discs will be.
remember this was 2 years ago. and still havent event seen prototypes in the public
That's Genital Electric, They bring goods things to life, maybe.
The tech being worked on may have been announced 2 years ago, however, the news here is that they now have holographic disc write speeds equivalent to that of Blu-ray.
You are correct, I have updated the article, thanks!
