Paper Abstract

"ODS" and "PACS" are two acronyms that seem to be made for each other. Some of the strongest holdouts for magnetic storage will concede--at least privately--that Optical Data Storage (ODS) has a role in digital medical Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS). This long-awaited technology is now a reality, bringing with it a family of ODS product configurations. For mass archival memory, we see large optical disks and long reels of sealed tapes. For compact archival memory devices, we see wallet-sized cards, small optical disks, sealed optical tape microcassettes, and adhesive labels containing laser recordable tape. The potential roles for some of these optical storage products are beginning to take form. This paper presents an overview of the Drexon family of optical storage products, with emphasis on product configurations, cost comparisons, and medical imagery apolications.
