We propose a hybrid multiplexing method for volume holographic correlators based on the combination of orthogonal random phase modulation of an object beam and two-dimensional angular multiplexing of a reference beam. This method implements storing multiple groups of library images in a single storage location and outputting multiple groups of correlation spots by switching the modulation phase masks. Three experiments are designed to test the validity of this method.
