Seagate Technology plc (NASDAQ:STX), a world leader in storage
solutions, today took the wraps off its seventh-generation hard drive
disk (HDD) engineered specifically for surveillance and video analytics
applications— the Seagate® Surveillance HDD. The Surveillance
HDD is a world-class HDD purpose-built for storing and accessing video
analytics, improving data integrity and keeping systems in the field

“There is a growing need to analyze and make use of large amounts of
video data, including applications where cities can predict and improve
traffic flows, airports can reduce wait times, and emergency responders
can react faster— the possibilities are endless,” said Scott Horn,
Seagate vice president of marketing. “We pioneered this market more than
a decade ago, delivering the world’s first surveillance HDD, and can
leverage our vast knowledge of this technology and market to provide our
customers with the optimal solution for recording and accessing
A 3.5-inch drive, the Surveillance HDD is available in capacities up to
4TB and can store up to 480 hours of high-definition (HD) content making
it the industry’s highest-capacity drive designed specifically for
surveillance applications. Designed to scale video storage, the drive
now incorporates rotational vibration (RV) sensors enabling it to
reliably perform in systems with up to 16 drives, making it ideal for
small-to-medium businesses such as casinos or manufacturing plants where
bulk storage for HD video and video analytics are highly valued.
“We look forward to adopting Seagate’s new surveillance optimized drives
with improved performance and reliability,” said Jeff Range, vice
president of global operations at March Networks. “The Surveillance HDD,
with its high capacity drive and robust features, will provide our
customers with the critical reliability we have come to expect from
Seagate as well as the expanded storage and ability to save data for
even longer periods.”
Designed to support surveillance recordings from a number of cameras no
matter their resolution requirements, Surveillance HDD supports up to 32
channels and easily handles the higher write workloads required by
surveillance systems. It also supports the flexibility required to scale
a surveillance solution, supporting more data for longer periods of time
and meeting industry archive and resolution requirements. These
features, coupled with the integrated R/V sensors, improve drive
performance in multi-drive and RAID systems and increase the value of
surveillance data by delivering the highest data integrity possible.
“We have enjoyed great success with Seagate drives for years and see
even greater potential with the Surveillance HDD particularly in the
network video recording space,” said Zheng Weirong, marketing director
of Hikvision. “With more options to stream and consolidate video footage
into a single solution, this new drive allows us to improve the size and
capacity of our systems without compromising system reliability.”
The drive’s improved time-to-read system allows installers to customize
power settings and better support motion-activated cameras – ensuring
their customers never miss a frame. Drives spin down for energy-saving
efficiency when no motions are detected by cameras, while quickly
powering back up to ensure a frame is never missed when a motion-sensing
camera is triggered.
Boasting industry-leading reliability, the Surveillance HDD has a 1
million hour MTBF, (mean time between failure) allowing the product to
be kept in the field longer while reducing the cost of field deployment
and maintaining customer retention. The drive is also engineered for low
power consumption and heat emissions allowing solution providers greater

“As we celebrate our 10th anniversary as an industry leading NVR and VMS
provider, we are thrilled to expand our partnership with Seagate and
include their new Surveillance HDD,” said Shawn Ho, senior director of
product marketing at NUUO. “The improvements in capacity of the
Surveillance HDD allows NUUO customers to scale their video resolution
and camera count providing users with best-in-class storage choices.”
“We’ve experienced tremendous growth in our IP surveillance solutions in
the last year. The ability to support larger systems with the new
Surveillance HDD means QNAP can provide our customers with the optimal
performance surveillance workloads demand,” said David Chiang, QNAP
