A professor from Keele University has started a company with big backing from venture capital called Keele High Density to create a new type of memory storage. The new type of storage is awsome but is still being tested and worked on.
But part of this is a totaly new compression system will
be software based, basically think of a Zipper type program but
mutch faster compression and decompression.
But wait for it, think of average 8 times capacity increase on your
hard drive, cd's, flash memory etc.
The current news shows that if you packed all the data (no matter what type). On a full 650 meg CD you get approx
5.2 gig. This means we may be able to ge a full DVD movie
mpeg2 file on a CD-R!!!
Also imagine what this will do for newsgroups and the net
download 8 times more stuff in the same amount of time if everyone starts compressing with the new RLL compression
from Keele High Density.
Now fit 8 times more MP3's onto your CD's, Hard Disk, Memory Cards!
Lets forget Zip eh!
The software should be available sometime this year!
