Memorex isn't the only company offering Blu-ray and HD DVD media. Fuji Photo Film USA has announced that they will be releasing their media the summer of 2006 and that they are continuing to look into holographic storage technologies.
Fuji Photo Film U.S.A., Inc., a subsidiary of the leading global imaging and information technologies company, today announced that Fujifilm-branded Blu-ray and HD DVD media will be available mid 2006. Prototypes of the new Fujifilm HD DVD and Blu-ray media will be on display at the Fujifilm booth at CES 2006 (Central Hall, N101/102).
The company also continues to conduct significant research and development in the area of holographic storage technologies that will bring future generation, multiple terabyte optical storage capacity to consumer, entertainment and commercial applications. A single terabyte of holographic disc storage is roughly the equivalent of 16 days of continuously running DVD movies, or 8,000 times more data than a human brain retains in a lifetime.
It's good to see that media manufacturers are getting ready for the flood of Blu-ray and HD DVD products that will be coming out later this year. If you'd like to read more, Fuji's entire press release can be found here.
