Seagate Technology on Thursday announced the Seagate Video 2.5” hard disk drive specifically engineered for use in 24/7 video applications like digital video recorders (DVRs), set-top boxes (STBs), and surveillance applications.

The Video 2.5 HDD provides home entertainment manufacturers one and two disk, cost-optimized solutions for today’s high-definition (HD) video recording applications. Featuring capacities up to 500GB, manufacturers can benefit from its lower-power performance and slim form factor without sacrificing the streaming capabilities or reliability of Seagate’s 3.5” video drives. Its low power consumption, 24/7 operation, and support of up to 12 streams of simultaneous HD content also make it ideal for surveillance DVR applications.

The Video 2.5 HDD delivers superior performance and operation in three key areas of importance to manufacturers – high reliability, acoustics, and energy efficiency. Featuring best in class reliability, the drive has an annual failure rate of approximately 0.55, based on current configurations, enabling it to keep product in the field longer while reducing the cost of field deployment and maintaining customer retention. It also boasts 24/7 operation capabilities in extended temperature ranges and enhanced acoustics for near silent operation, features crucial for consumer electronics and video applications.

“We pioneered the HDD video market more than a decade ago and as such are leveraging our vast knowledge of this technology to bring consumers the most reliable video drive in the world. The CE industry has extremely specific criteria and needs when it comes to storage and the Video 2.5 HDD is built to meet and exceed their rigorous demands,” said Scott Horn, vice president of marketing at Seagate.
