Toshiba announces high capacity hard drives for surveillance applications
Toshiba has launched the MD03ACA-V series, a high-capacity hard disk drive (HDD) for surveillance applications. Toshiba’s purpose-built line of 3.5-inch HDDs is available in capacities up to 4 TB. The SATA drives spin at 7200rpm and support the industry-standard 512n sector lengths as well as RV compensation that maintains performance under multiple HDD configuration – making the MD03ACA-V series well suited for customers looking for around-the-clock 24/7 video surveillance storage.
The robust design of the MD03ACA-V series provides storage to various video recorders including surveillance digital video recorders (SDVR), surveillance network video recorders (SNVR) and Hybrid SDVR, delivering 24/7 operation with a mean time to failure (MTTF) of 1 million hours. With up to 4TB of storage, the Toshiba’s MD03ACA-V enables support for higher resolution data streams, addresses the need for longer surveillance video retention periods, multi-streaming capabilities, wider temperature resistance and uninterrupted write applications.
