Western Digital introduced the WD Purple SC QD101 Ultra Endurance microSD card designed specifically for equipment makers, resellers and installers in the mainstream security camera market. The company also announced a compelling new addition to the hard disk drive portfolio, WD Purple 14TB HDD for surveillance, which is compatible with wide range of security systems.
“Within the UAE, we continue to witness growth in the video surveillance market, with Expo 2020 around the corner as well as ongoing government smart initiatives to help enhance the lives and safety of their citizens. Keeping these digitization agendas in mind, we aim to upgrade or expand security systems with the launch of the WD Purple Ultra Endurance microSD Card. This latest innovation is designed for the extreme demands of high temperature, 24/7 surveillance, and quality video playback. ” said Khwaja Saifuddin, Senior Sales Director, Middle East at Western Digital.
“Customers are looking for high-endurance, high-capacity, robust, on-camera storage for a variety of public safety and AI analytics use cases,” said Saifuddin. “These new products deliver optimized storage technology to handle these exciting new and varied visual workloads at the edge.”
Western Digital’s WD Purple portfolio of storage devices are designed with specifically-chosen attributes to deliver reliable performance in mainstream security video systems that operate 24/7. These purpose-built solutions offer high quality and long-lasting storage for workloads that consumer microSD cards and desktop-grade hard drives are not specifically designed for.
