Victor Co. of Japan, better known as JVC, said Friday it has developed what it claims to be the world's first read-only disc capable of storing data in both the Blu-ray Disc format and the conventional DVD format. The new disc is intended to smooth a transition from DVDs to the next-generation disc. Its dual use was made possible by a special filter film that reflects blue laser beams, used to read Blu-ray data, while letting through red laser beams, used for DVD data.

From Colossal Storage website.
Atomic Holographic Optical Storage Nanotechnology
will dramatically improve applications like 6,840 raw uncompressed high quality Video/TV hours, or 2,100,000 chest x-rays, or nearly 10,000,000 high-resolution images, or 30,000 four-drawer filing cabinets of documents, or 20,000 DVD'S Worm's , or 4,000 BLU-Ray Worm disk's on ONE 10 Terabyte 3.5 in. removable disc.
- It will have highest NLO analog / digital / optical capacity available
- will have lowest cost per gigabyte
- will have lowest power requirement per gigabyte
- will have longest archive shelf life of any data storage media, 100 years
- will have widest environmental conditions and tolerances
- will be only technology that scales from nano to macro solutions
- will have most reliable removable read / write media available
- will have highest bandwidth data transfer potential
- will be direct replacement for hard disk drives
- will NOT have storage media destroyed by Infrared, Visible, or Ultraviolet Light
- will NOT be effected by extreme high energy EMF or Cosmic Rays
i.e. Solar Flares and Solar Winds for Moon / Mars Exploration
- will be nuclear/cosmic radiation hardened capable
A 3.5 in. disk using 5 nm particle with 100 u in. coating = ~ 1.5 EXABYTES of data storage
1.5 Exabytes equals 1536 Petabytes or 1,572,865 Terabytes per each 100 u in. of coating.
