This paper presents an efficient solution to recovering data pixels of images that have undergone optical and electrical channel impairments in holographic data storage systems. The channel impairments considered include interpixel interference, three types of misalignment, and noise. The proposed misalignment-compensation scheme, consisting of realignment and rate conversion, can effectively eliminate misalignment with more than 84% reduction in additions and 74% reduction in multiplications. In addition, several low-complexity techniques are introduced to reduce the complexity of a two-dimensional maximum a posteriori pixel detection method by up to 95% and do so with negligible degradation in detection performance.
