Beyond HD DVD ... Is the Holographic Versatile Disc

The Holographic Versatile Disc (HVD) is the stealth player in this protracted struggle; the rapidly emerging technology is capable of storing (eventually) 3.9 TB of data on a CD-sized disc. Beyond this extraordinary capacity roughly the equivalent of 800 DVDs, the format's zippy 1 GB per second thorughput has tremendous implications in the commercial, industrial and d-Cinema realms.
