Western Digital Corporation, one of the largest computer hard disk drive manufacturers in the world has introduced industry's highest capacity, deep-learning-capable, surveillance-class drive, Western Digital Purple 12TB drive with exclusive AllFrame AI technology, to provide optimized surveillance solutions to its clients.

The newest addition to Western Digital's surveillance portfolio creates new possibilities in video surveillance by supporting the capture of multiple high-resolution video streams while simultaneously accessing recorded video to support deep learning and analytics. The full edge-to-core surveillance portfolio adds 12TB Western Digital Purple Drive with the capability to apply Machine Learning and AI to enhance safety and security, a company statement told.

This capability is purpose-built for emerging DVR and NVR systems with Artificial Intelligence (AI) capabilities in that it supports real-time detection of AI-triggered events at the point of capture with continuous background learning.

"AI-enabled NVRs are being architected for new GPUs and CPUs to improve overall deep-learning capability and to speed algorithms related to object recognition and facial recognition. NVRs with deep learning require greater storage capacity and more sophisticated processing, versus individual cameras, to perform more advanced analytics, such as location of an individual face image from weeks or months of stored video, or creation of traffic heat maps from hours of retail surveillance video," said Brendan Collins, vice president product marketing, devices business unit, Western Digital.

The Western Digital Purple 12TB surveillance-class enable higher capacity storage for all compatible video surveillance systems. New systems enable additional functions such as real-time edge analytics to better detect objects and reduce false triggers. AI-enabled systems not only detect the moving targets but can analyze them to help determine if they are a potential threat.
