Blu-ray moves into medical image archiving

Archiving software provider QStar Technologies has certified Panasonic's Blu-ray archiving box for its HSM archival storage software platform.

The Panasonic's ADA (Advanced Disc for Archive) Blu-ray storage technology is the first Blu-ray media enclosed in a protective cartridge, enabling much greater data integrity and more secure offline media management than bare media, according to Panasonic.

QStar said it is working with Panasonic and IT integrator Rorke Data to create a network-attached DICOM Store appliance using ADA for medical imaging archiving. The 50Gbyte storage capacity, fast random data access and robust protective cartridge make ADA ideally suited for the needs of a PACS environment, QStar said.

QStar's HSM provides multi-level archive management with mirroring, which controls the storage location and retention periods of archive records throughout their lifecycle.
