Tilt tolerance of media is compared for bit-based and page-based holographic storage systems having an equal diffraction efficiency per bit detector, dynamic range of the medium, and surface recording density. We have formalized the diffraction efficiency degradation caused by aberrations of a reconstructing reference beam induced by tilt of the medium, using a coupled wave theory in the Fourier domain. The bit-based holographic storage system has a larger media tilt tolerance compared with a page-based system with relatively large page size.
