WD’s (www.wd.com) WD Purple NV is a purpose-built line of 3.5-inch, high-capacity 4TB and 6 B hard drives for the greater demands of scalable network video recorder (NVR) surveillance systems.
Compared with standard WD Purple drives, the new member of the WD’s surveillance video recording family of drives, WD Purple NV, is designed for larger-scale network surveillance systems utilizing higher hard drive bay counts and greater numbers of attached cameras, which demand increased storage capacity and durability. The new drives’ high capacities also enable long video retention periods for analysis and reference.
WD Purple NV is also designed to withstand the demands of always-on digital NVR recording environments. It offers low power consumption and many advanced performance features typically reserved for higher end surveillance storage.
WD Purple NV hard drives are equipped with an array of exclusive WD technologies. When combined with ATA streaming support, AllFrame technology helps to reduce video footage loss with a proprietary cache policy management technology to help improve data flow and playback. WD Purple includes exclusive firmware upgrades that protect against video pixilation and interruptions within a surveillance system.
Designed with tarnish-resistant components, WD Purple NV offers premium protection in harsh environments where surveillance systems can be installed. The hard drives are optimized to support systems utilizing high numbers of high-definition surveillance cameras, giving users the flexibility to upgrade and expand a security system in the future.
WD Purple NV 6TB surveillance hard drives, available now, are covered by a three-year limited warranty. WD Purple NV 4TB hard drives will be available for qualification later this quarter.
