Paper Abstract

RCA Corporation has been actively developing optical disc media, techniques and systems which can store 1011 bits per disc at bit error rates of 10-9 and user data rates of 100 Mb/s. In parallel with efforts to improve the media and hardware, new techniques have been developed to manage the statistically inevitable errors which will occur in the recording, storage and playback process. These techniques, which include EDAC codes, data blocking formats and data verification schemes, have been implemented in operating hardware at RCA. Error sources in Optical Disc systems are outlined and media and hardware error management techniques are described.
