A group of 15 major manufacturers has agreed on a standard for magneto-optical (MO) drives and is set to do battle with DVD technology for dominance of the mass storage market.
Fujitsu, US chipmaker LSI Logic and Dutch-based Philips are spearheading the group, which is proposing MO drives as a standard, but they face fierce opposition from the DVD camp, headed up by Sony, Hitachi and the Hollywood industry.
However, DVD-Ram is also supported by several Japanese majors, such as Hitachi, who apparently also support MO drives. MO disks, which can already act as backup media, are threatened by DVD read and write drives, which are set to proliferate by the end of this year.
