We have developed the Optimem 1000 optical disk drive to address the low end market for cost effective write-once optical storage systems. The Optimem 1000 is a 1-Gbyte/surface drive which is meant to complement magnetic disk storage. Typical office-type applications for this drive are electronic file cabinet storage and CAD/CAM and medical image storage, in the document storage applications, the optical drive can be used as the central file server along with magnetic disk drives for work in progress.
