Seagate Develops Next-Gen Hard Drives for Digital Video Surveillance

Seagate introduced its SV35.5 Series hard drives for digital video surveillance systems. The Seagate SV35.5 hard drive is built for 24x7 use and offers reliability, performance, capacity, acoustics and power consumption features for the growing video surveillance market.

Notably, the hard drive is performance-tuned for 140 MB/s sustained sequential data rates and ATA-7 streaming commands for high-speed transfers, enhanced caching capabilities and built-in error recovery for non-stop streaming, thermal monitoring and reporting, unique user-selectable partitioning, low spin-up power, and best-in-class acoustics for extremely quiet operation. Capacities range from 250GB to 1TB.
