The latest addition to Toshiba Electronics Europe's SV series line-up of 3.5" hard drives for surveillance applications has been announced. The MD06ACA-V HDD models are available in capacities up to 10TB with a higher transfer rate compared to previous MD04ABA-V models, enabling support for up to 64 camera streams. Higher capacity and transfer rates allow support for higher resolution camera streams to meet the changing compliance mandates for surveillance data.

The MD06ACA-V series is designed for 24/7 streaming operation scenarios and is typically used for surveillance digital video recorders (SDVR), surveillance network video recorders (SNVR) and Hybrid SDVR. The MD06ACA-V Series features 7,200 rpm access performance. The 10TB model delivers a 58% increase in maximum sustained transfer rate when compared to Toshiba’s prior MD04ABA-V Series, pushing it to 237MiB/s.

Available in 6, 8 and 10TB capacities, the new models provide a SATA 6Gbit/s interface with a 256MiB dynamic buffer. Additionally, the MD06ACA-V models support Advanced Format (512e) technology for compatibility with legacy applications and operating environments.

“The inclusion of the Rotational Vibration compensation technology provides optimal drive performance in multi-bay configurations and superior reliability with a mean time to failure (MTTF) of one million hours utilising a conventional mechanical design," said Noriaki Katakura, General Manager of Toshiba Electronics Europe, HDD Business Unit. “This third generation surveillance HDD line-up delivers the capacity, performance and reliability needed for higher resolution surveillance video streams and longer content retention requirements.”

Samples of the MD06ACA-V HDD Series are now available.
