Toshiba – Announces 5TB Surveillance Hard Disk Drive
Toshiba Electronics Europe (TEE) has announced the MD04ABA-V Series, delivering Toshiba’s first 5TB 3.5-inch, low RPM hard disk drive (HDD) specifically for surveillance applications.
The MD04ABA-V series is built for use in surveillance digital video recorders (SDVR), surveillance network video recorders (SNVR) and hybrid SDVR. Designed for surveillance applications, with support for up to 32 high definition cameras and 24/7 operation, the MD04ABA-V Series also incorporates rotational vibration (RV) sensors, making it suitable for use in RAID/multi-HDD based surveillance platforms.
With the massive 5TB capacity point, customers now have the flexibility to retain higher resolution surveillance video data for longer periods using fewer HDDs, helping to maintain a smaller storage footprint and lower energy costs. “The latest generation surveillance cameras produce higher resolution video streams that increase storage capacity requirements.
Toshiba’s MD04ABA-V Series Surveillance HDDs deliver greater capacity, quieter operation and more power efficient operation versus competing higher RPM HDD models,” said Martin Larsson, Vice President, Toshiba Electronics Europe, Storage Products Division.
