Paper Abstract

This paper gives an overview of the optical media unit design. Information about the optical storage subsystem provides an understanding of the optical media unit design rationale. The paper also includes an assessment of media unit design specifications dictated by the optical storage unit design and market requirements. Such requirements define price, performance, size, weight, and ease of handling. Specifications determined by storage unit, library and human interfaces are also considered. A discussion of the design implementation is also presented.
