The MD06ACA-V Series is Toshiba’s largest capacity surveillance –class HDD


Toshiba, a global leader in Storage products and solutions, announces the latest additions to its SV series line up of 3.5 inch hard drives for surveillance applications. The new model MD06ACA-V is available in capacities up to 10TB with a higher transfer rate compared to previous model MD04ABA-V models, helping to enable support for higher resolution camera streams to meet changing compliance mandates for surveillance data. One Tetra byte is equivalent to 1,000,000,000,000 bytes, which means a lot of storage space for streaming videos.

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. The MD06ACA-V series features 7,200 rpm access performance and the new 10TB delivers a 58 percent increase in maximum sustained transfer rate when compared to the previous model MD04ABA-V series. MD06ACA-V series has 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 AdvancedFormat (512e) technology for compatibility with legacy applications and operating environments.

“Toshiba offers the industry’s most comprehensive range of storage products and technology, the third generation surveillance HDD line-up provides the capacity, reliability, scalability and robust performance needed for today’s  24 x 7 surveillance environments, ” said Santosh Varghese, General Manager –MEA at Toshiba Gulf FZE.

Number of surveillance cameras support capability is defined by performance simulation with High Definition cameras at 10Mbit/s rate. Actual results may vary based on various factors, including the types of cameras installed, the system’s hardware and software capabilities, and the video compression technology used, as well as system variables such as resolution, frames per second, and other settings..
