WD Launches Purple NV HDDs for Surveillance Systems

WD has officially launched its new Purple NV line of hard disk drives. These 3.5-inch, high-capacity hard drives are higher-tier versions of the company’s standard Purple drives and are specifically built for large-scale scalable network video recorder (NVR) surveillance systems.

The Purple NV line’s high-capacity drives enable long video retention periods and are designed for always-on digital NVR recording environments. Additionally, the Purple NV drives feature low power consumption and a slew of WD’s signature technologies. These include AllFrame, Premium Protection, and support for high-camera-count systems.

“The global video surveillance market is expanding with the increased accessibility to easy-to-use systems for small businesses and municipalities,” said Matt Rutledge, senior vice president of HDD marketing at WD. “WD optimized the WD Purple NV line of hard drives for NVR digital surveillance systems to improve high-definition video playback for high-camera-count applications. NVR surveillance systems can produce incredible amounts of data which makes the WD Purple NV hard drives a perfect solution for NVR systems needing high quality recording and playback and high capacity storage.”

The WD Purple NV drives are available in 4TB and 6TB capacities and are covered by a three-year limited warranty. The 6TB variant is now available to customers for qualification while the 4TB will be available for qualification later this quarter. Both variants will start shipping in volume within the quarter.
