Технологии: Six firms form the HVD Alliance around 1TB disc_

Holographic Versatile DiscWhile Sony and Toshiba (among others) are squabbling over Blu-ray and HD-DVD, CMC Fuji Photo, CMC Magnetics, and three other companies have rallied around Optware’s HVD technology—that’s Holographic Versatile Disc—and founded the HVD forum. They may not come out and say it, but they’ve obviously got bigger fish to fry than the small stuff—their HVD format stores 1TB of data on a single CD-sized holographic disc (yes, that’s over 33 times larger than HD-DVD, and 20 times larger than Blu-ray’s capacity).
