Video Surveillance and the Demand for Purpose-Built Systems >

Consistent Performance in Multi-Drive Surveillance Systems

Improve your drive reliability with drives built for surveillance applications that include the flexibility to scale as your data grows. The addition of rotational vibration sensors allows the Surveillance HDD to maintain performance through system vibrations and support RAID configurations in the growing NVR and standalone-DVR segments.

  • The addition of RV sensors allows drives to reliably perform in systems with up to 16 drives
  • RV sensors in a RAID environment improve system vibration tolerance
  • Support for up to 32 cameras recording in high definition

Improved Time-To-Ready for Motion Sensing Cameras

As drive technology evolves, so do the applications that leverage them. With improvements in motion sensing cameras, the Surveillance HDD now includes settings that can ensure your drive is ready when your system needs to record.

  • Idle 3 power setting allows immediate recording when motion sensing is detected in a camera
  • Quick time-to-ready requires smaller system buffer sizes, reducing cost
