WD is expanding its AV-GP line of hard drives to include a 2TB capacity. WD AV-GP hard drives with WD GreenPower Technology provide cooler operation and lower power consumption. Designed to withstand the stringent environment of the surveillance and security markets, the WD AV-GP line of hard drives for audio and video applications reduces power consumption by as much as 40 per cent over standard drives in their respective classes.
The new WD AV-GP 2 TB hard drive is perfect for applications such as DVRs (digital video recorders), media centres, media servers, as well as surveillance video recording that demand a higher capacity hard drive. The drive combines the IntelliSeek, IntelliPark, and IntelliPower technologies as well as features Preemptive Wear Leveling (PWL).
“Our consumer electronics customers require hard drives that consume less power, generate less heat and operate quietly,” said Sharad Srivastava, director, sales, India and South Asia, Western Digital. “Audio and video recording applications, such as DVRs, media servers, media centres and mainstream surveillance systems, often demand 24×7 operation from hard drives. Our drives meet the demanding requirements of these markets including higher reliability, universal compatibility, low power consumption and the ability to simultaneously record multiple audio and/or high-definition video streams.”
The WD AV-GP 2 TB hard drive (model WD20EVDS) is available at a maximum suggested retail price (MSRP) of Rs 15,500.
