We investigate the possibility to multiplexing (Mux) and demultiplexing (de-Mux) numerically digital holograms (DHs) with the aim of optimizing their storage and/or transmission process. The DHs are multiplexed and demultiplexed thanks to the unique property of the digital holography to numerically manage the complex wavefields. We show that it is possible to retrieve correctly quantitative information about the amplitude and phase of one hundred DHs. This result can be useful to transmit efficiently, in terms of reduced amount of data, the DHs from the recording head to a remote display unit.
