Bronson added that high capacity data storage device demand is rapidly accelerating and the Optical Disc Archive system will offer one of the optimum choices.

Optical Disc Archive is a High Capacity, Reliable Media Storage Platform

The Optical Disc Archive is a high capacity, reliable media storage platform that acts as an on-site backup, as well as an asset management solution. Widely used by broadcasters, sports organizations, and production Companies, this solution is also gaining traction in other industries such as educational institutions, data centers, financial organizations, and compliance industry because of its reliability, scalability, and eco-friendly features. The second generation of Optical Disc Archive system adopts optical media jointly developed by Sony and Panasonic. Rated with a 100-year shelf life, the second generation Optical Disc Archive media doubles the capacity of a single cartridge to 3.3 TB.

The Optical Disc Archive system leverages the technologies and reliability of optical discs originally developed for commercial broadcast equipment. It also succeeds in keeping down total archiving costs and has a very low environmental footprint.

Pursuant to the agreement, Qualstar designed and developed the specifications and architecture for an enterprise class optical disc archive library.
