Paper Abstract

An overview is presented of digital recording technology for storing electronic imaging system data. Image sensors characteristically produce very high rate data and require very high density storage devices. Of the technologies currently available, magnetic recording represents the only viable techniques for many imaging requirements. The advantage of magnetic recording over competing technologies is expected to continue well into the 1990's. Although optical recording on a tape media is an interesting alternative to magnetic recording, this technology is currently in the research stage and is not expected to be a production technology for some time to come.
