Toshiba America Electronic Components has unveiled the MD06ACA-V, the latest addition to its SV series line-up of 3.5-inch hard drives for surveillance applications. The new models are available in capacities up to 10TB with a higher transfer rate compared to previous MD04ABA-V models, helping to enable support for up to 64 camera streams. Higher capacity and transfer rates enable support for higher resolution camera streams to meet 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, according to the company. The MD06ACA-V series features 7,200 rpm access performance, and the new 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 6TB, 8TB 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.
