WD intros Purple NV line of hard drives

The famous maker of hard drives Western Digital (WD) has presented the new Purple NV line of hard drives, which is specifically designed for scalable network video recorder (NVR) surveillance systems.

The new line includes two models as of now with capacities of 4 TB and 6 TB. When compared to the already released Purple line of hard drives, the new Purple NV series is designed for larger-scale network surveillance systems with higher hard drive bay counts and a larger number of attached cameras, which need more storage capacity and higher durability. The new line also offers long video retention periods for analysis and reference and fully meets the demands of always-on digital NVR recording environments.

The Purple NV line packs some interesting technological solutions and features such as low power consumption, advanced performance improvements and three important technologies. AllFrame helps reduce video footage loss with a proprietary cache policy management technology when combined with ATA streaming support; Premium Protection defends a Purple NV hard drive against harsh environments and finally we have support for high-camera-count systems, which means a Purple NV hard drive supports numerous high-definition cameras and has the flexibility to support even more.

The new 6 TB Purple NV hard drive is available now with the 4 TB model coming out later this quarter. The two drives are covered by a 3-year warranty. No word on pricing.
