Chromaton disc is very similar to a CD or DVD. Perhaps it could even be identical. The difference is that a chromaton disk creates areas of differential diffraction causing certain wavelengths of light to reflect back to the camera. One way this can be done is instead of creating pits on the disc surface with a perpendicular laser, angling the laser to produce diffraction grating surfaces. Depending on the angle of the laser, a different sort of diffraction grating will be produced leading to different wavelengths of light read, instead of just white and black. Ideally on a chormaton disc we would have 12 different wavelength signatures; "colors".

Of course these can be angled pits and/or ridges. The height of the angles or the width can be controlled. There can be any number of them at certain angles. Another option is using the basic flat pits and/or ridges that are typically on things like CD's or DVD's and keeping them as is. Using a detector at certain angles to see certain colors produced by the pits/ridges. So instead of the pits/ridges bieng angled, the detector is angled instead.
