By Kokumo Goodie, Lagos, Nigeria
Western Digital has released one of its flagship products, purple surveillance storage drives (WD Purple), in Nigeria, saying the solution, designed for high definition (HD) surveillance, will help tackle insecurity.
Mohammed Owais, who is Sales Director Distribution, Middle East, Africa & India, of the tech firm said the surveillance solutions of the firm are designed to address insecurity in the country.
“Our surveillance solutions can address insecurity situation in Nigeria and not only Nigeria, but in all places where there are insecurity issues. We created our surveillance solutions to address insecurity challenges. For example our Purple Drive Solution offer up to 6TB of capacity and is capable of monitoring troubled environment 24/7 non-stop and capture images of people and objects in such environment,” said Owais on the sideline of SECUREX 2015 exhibition at Eko Hotel, Lagos.
He explained that digital surveillance systems are rapidly replacing analogue systems in the region, adding that these systems feature HD cameras which are able to capture footages in high resolution, making it easier to identify critical details when reviewing footages. According to him, WD Purple hard drives are engineered for 24/7 always-on surveillance in high-definition surveillance systems that use up to eight hard drives and up to 32 cameras.
WD Purple drives feature IntelliPower and AllFrame technologies, which deliver premium reliability and peace-of-mind when installing in homes or small- to medium-size business security systems. AllFrame technology works with ATA streaming to reduce frame loss, improve playback and increase the number of drive bays supported in a surveillance system. Moreover, AllFrame reduces video interruptions that commonly occur when desktop hard drives are incorrectly used in security systems.
WD surveillance drives enable SDRVRs, NVR, CCTV, IPTV, and other digital video surveillance systems to deliver a comprehensive range of features and capabilities such as high-resolution image quality, streaming video from multiple high-definition cameras, video archiving with ultra-fast data access and on-demand video playback.
Regardless of the surveillance environment, whether it is banking, casino, retail, commercial, corporate, government or law enforcement, WD surveillance-based hard drives deliver the performance, added capacity, and enhanced reliability that surveillance applications require.
