Having already increased the storage capacity of its holographic storage system, Sony's now turned its attention to speeding up data transfer rates, and it certainly doesn't look to be wasting any time ratcheting things up. According to Tech-On, Sony's managed to increase the transfer rate of its "coaxial type" holographic data storage system from a mere 3 Mbps to 92 Mbps and 107 Mbps for read and write times, respectively. That considerable leap was apparently achieved by using a new image-stabilization technique developed by Sony (artfully illustrated above), along with an improved CMOS sensor that allows the system to operate at a higher frame frequency. Sony's far from done yet, however, promising to eventually increase transfer rates to a cool 1 Gbps by boosting the laser output and increasing the sensitivity of the recording medium.
