An earlier optical disc technology from Zen Research, NV, Curacao, Netherlands Antilles that was introduced in 1998. Using multiple beams to read several tracks in parallel, it was designed to reduce wear and tear by reading the disk at high speed while rotating the platter at slow speed. Kenwood Technologies was the only vendor that tried to make TrueX viable. It did achieve a consistent 52x speed, but never caught on.

TrueX Technology
TrueX read multiple tracks simultaneously so that more data were made available to the drive at the same time. Although the platter spun slower, the drive achieved an extremely fast and consistent transfer rate. (Image courtesy of Zen Research, NV.)
