    •     Surveillance-optimised firmware improves drive reliability up to 30% and can reduce data loss
    •     Ready to work 24×7 supporting 600+ hours of high definition content
    •     180TB/year workload rating, 1M hours MTBF

    Surveillance HDD Delivers Reliability + Rescue Services
    Surveillance HDDs are engineered for demanding surveillance systems. Should your data be lost, unintentionally deleted, or corrupted by viruses the data can be recovered with the new Seagate Rescue Services feature.
    •     The three year Rescue Service Plan recovers the data from your failed drive, whether due to mechanical failure or accidental damage
    •     Fast and easy recovery process - data can be restored in 15 days or less
    •     Seagate leads the industry in data recovery with a 90% success rate

    Consistent Performance in Multi-Drive Systems
    Improve your drive reliability with drives built for surveillance applications that include the flexibility to scale as your data grows.The addition of rotational vibration sensors allows the Surveillance HDD to maintain performance through system vibrations and support RAID configurations in the growing NVR and standalone - DVR segments.
    •     Choose options with RV sensors to allow drives to reliably perform in systems with up 8+ drives
    •     RV sensors in a RAID environment improve system vibration tolerance
    •     Support for up to 64 cameras recording in high definition

    Improved Time-To-Ready So You Don't Miss a Frame
    As drive technology evolves, so do the applications that leverage them. With improvements in motion-sensing cameras, the Surveillance HDD now includes settings that can ensure your drive is ready when your system needs to record.
    •     Idle 3 power setting allows immediate recording when motion sensing is detected in a camera
    •     Quick time-to-ready requires smaller system buffer sizes, reducing cost
