Plasmon to introduce Blue-Laser ultra density optical (UDO) drive at COMDEX


Plasmon, a leading manufacturer of automated data storage solutions, will introduce its Ultra Density Optical (UDO) drive at COMDEX in Las Vegas later this month. The company announced development of UDO, the next generation 5.25" optical drive technology, in March.

UDO will be the world's first blue-violet laser optical disk drive developed for professional data storage markets and will deliver the performance of 5.25" MO, the longevity of 12-inch WORM and the cost effectiveness of DVD solutions. UDO will utilize 405nm blue-violet laser and phase change technology from the recently announced consumer DVD type products. UDO media cartridges will be dimensionally identical to current 5.25" MO to provide compatibility with existing 5.25" library automation and both WORM and rewritable media will be available.

The first generation product will provide 30GB capacity and a fast data transfer rate of up to 8MB/s. Future generations will increase capacity to 60GB and 120GB and backward read capability will be maintained throughout the product roadmap. Target markets include archiving, document imaging, call centers, email archiving, GIS, medical, telecom, banking, insurance, legal and government. UDO is the future standard in professional optical storage and Plasmon is developing both drives and media in-house. The $25 million development program is fully funded and has been underway since June 2000.

Plasmon has over 80 engineers engaged on its UDO development program and first product shipments are scheduled for August 2003. Plasmon is partnered with Asahi Pentax who is developing the opto-mechanical assembly for the drive based on their existing 5.25" MO platform. Mitsubishi Chemical is the second source development partner for UDO media.
