WD showcases its high capacity Purple hard drives at Intersec 2015, which are designed for HD surveillance applications. These drives offer up to 6TB of capacity and are engineered for 24/7 always-on surveillance in high-definition surveillance systems that use up to eight hard drives and up to 32 cameras.<!–more–>

WD Purple drives feature IntelliPower and AllFrame technologies, which deliver premium reliability and peace-of-mind when installing in homes or small- to medium-size business security systems.

AllFrame technology works with ATA streaming to reduce frame loss, improve playback and increase the number of drive bays supported in a surveillance system. Moreover, AllFrame reduces video interruptions that commonly occur when desktop hard drives are incorrectly used in security systems.

Khwaja Saifuddin, Senior Sales Director, Middle East, Africa & India at WD, said, “Over the past year, we have witnessed phenomenal demand for our WD Purple drives from individuals and property owners, as well as from leading public and private sector organizations. This is a testament to the class-leading performance and reliability that our drives offer.”

Digital surveillance systems are rapidly replacing analog systems in the region. These systems feature HD cameras and are able to capture footage in high resolution, making it easier to identify critical details when reviewing footage.

“Since digital systems are increasingly being sold without storage, the choice of what to buy falls to the customer. It’s for this reason that WD introduced its surveillance class hard drives and made them easy to remember by simply giving them a colour – WD Purple,” added Saifuddin.
