Toshiba Announces 5TB Surveillance Hard Disk Drive

The Storage Products Business Unit of Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc., a committed technology leader, announces the MD04ABA-V Series, delivering the company’s first 5TB1 3.5-inch, low RPM hard disk drive (HDD) specifically for surveillance applications. The MD04ABA-V series is designed for use in surveillance digital video recorders (SDVR), surveillance network video recorders (SNVR) and hybrid SDVR.

The MD04ABA-V Series is designed for surveillance applications with support for up to 32 high definition cameras2. The Series supports 24/7 operation, and 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 vs. competing higher RPM HDD models,” said Scott Wright, product marketing manager at Toshiba Storage Products Business Unit.

The MD04ABA-V Series sample will begin shipping in August 2014. For more information on Toshiba’s line of industry-leading SSDs, HDDs and SSHDs, visit www.toshibastorage.com.

1 One Terabyte (1TB) = 1,000 Gigabytes (GB). One Gigabyte (1GB) means 109 = 1,000,000,000 bytes using powers of 10. A computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1GB = 230 = 1,073,741,824 bytes, and therefore shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity will also be less if the computer includes one or more pre-installed operating systems, pre-installed software applications, or media content. Actual formatted capacity may vary.

2 Number of surveillance cameras support capability is defined by performance simulation with High Definition cameras as 2MiB/s rate.
