Cyber Entertainment Media - Online Video and Music Storage
« on: December 01, 2010, 02:51:45 AM »

This is a follow-up post to a previous post called “Virtual Media Storage (VMS) to replace DVD's, CD's and ALL other media storage

In the above post I mentioned that ultra-high broadband (using “Light Switching”) would make it possible to download an entire movie in less than a second.

Here is an interesting development:

“Search and advertising giant Google plans to build and test super fast fiber-optic broadband networks in a few communities around the U.S., promising up to a one gigabit per second service — a hundred-fold increase over what most Americans currently can subscribe to. A 1 Gbps could let a user download a HD movie in minutes and is more than 1000 times faster than AT&T’s basic DSL offering.”

Well, it is not “less than a second yet”, but they have already improved the speed by 1000 times. Imagine they improve it by 1000 times again. That will result in a movie being downloaded in 1000th of a minute, which equates to 17 movies per second!

If you doubt the above statement then read the following article:

A RESEARCH team has developed photonics processing that could push the broadband speeds to one terabit per second.

University of Sydney Institute of Photonics and Optical Science director Ben Eggleton said the group has filed patents on a number of related technologies.

"We are looking to commercialise an aspect of that work in partnership with local industry," Professor Eggleton said. "It will either be through licensing to some industry partners or it will be through the form of a spinoff.

"Those discussions and negotiations are just starting to happen at a high level."

The team has reportedly broken world records by getting optical switching up to 1Tbps, a speed fast enough to transmit hundreds of DVDs a second.

Professor Eggleton said the initial commercialisation plan would most likely cover at the instrumentation market, where it could be in use in two to three years.

"It is an instrument that universities, research labs, or the Telstras and Optuses, would buy to use in their laboratories for testing," he said.

IPOS, which launched in April last year, has claimed the technology as one of its core objectives. IPOS has broken new ground in photonics and optics.

"The key to our approach is to rely on all-optical signal processing," he said. "So on an integrated circuit we can do basic logic, but the most important example is we have created a photonic chip-based waveform analyser with a terahertz of bandwidth."

The University of Sydney has one of the top five optics schools in the world, Professor Eggleton said. "What is unique about our approach is that it is photonic chip-based solutions.

"There are only a handful of groups in the world working in this space and many of them are collaborating with us."

The research is in conjunction with the Australian National University as part of the CUDOS, an Australian Research Council centre of excellence that spans six universities.

"The ultimate vision would be to see these in next-generation networks, probably not the national broadband network, because it is relying on off-the-shelf components, but the network that follows that initial deployment," Professor Eggleton said. "But initially we would sell these chips, these integrated waveform analysers into the instrumentation market."

IPOS has run a breakthrough demonstration of green light from silicon. It opens up prospects for developing silicon devices for photonic processing. An important direction is integrating biology with photonics and optics. The group's work covers physics, mathematics, chemistry, engineering and microscopy.

So what does all of this mean?

Simply put, it will change the way we view videos and listen to music. There will be no need for DVD or CD Players, or any other physical Media Players. Everything will be stored on a central database, and will be downloaded almost “instantly” onto viewing or listening devices.

I predict that this WILL happen within the next 5 to 10 years.

Our children’s children will one day ask their parents: “You guys did what? You actually carried your movies and songs on “discs” with you on your person? Man, that sounds really lame!”

Now is the time to start building a website that will become the de-facto standard when it comes to providing this new, incredible service that will change the way we look at home entertainment forever!

Any investors out there??! Contact me, before someone else builds this.
