Surveillance-Class Drive
Western Digital  Purple surveillance-class storage has been tested to be compatible in a wide-range of security systems. These drives are designed to replace standard desktop drives that were not designed for the 24/7 always-on, high-definition surveillance environment. Desktop drives are built to run for only short intervals and are not engineered to withstand high-temperature fluctuations and equipment vibrations found in a typical surveillance application.

Surveillance Storage 
The Western Digital Purple Surveillance Hard Drive is designed for high temperature, always-on, surveillance security systems to ensure reliability and quality video play back when you need it most.

Improve Performance with AllFrame 
This Western Digital  Purple Surveillance-class hard drive is equipped with AllFrame technology which works with ATA streaming to reduce frame loss, improve playback and increase the number of drive bays supported. AllFrame reduces video interruptions that commonly occur when desktop hard drives are incorrectly used as storage in security systems. Missed frames and lost footage can be a problem when an event occurs and surveillance footage needs to be retrieved. Western Digital  Purple with AllFrame provides the confidence you should expect when it’s time to play back and review critical surveillance footage.

Low Power Consumption 
With integrated IntelliSeek technology, this Western Digital Purple drive calculates the optimum seek speed which lowers power consumption, noise and vibration that can damage and cause drives to wear out more quickly.

Western Digital Purple Storage Drives are specifically designed for Surveillance security systems using PVR, DVR, NVR recorders that use up to eight hard drives and up to 32 cameras at once.
