The new drive supports the capture of multiple high resolution video streams while simultaneously accessing recorded video to support deep learning and analytics. 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.
The 12TB drives feature exclusive AllFrame AI technology designed specifically for AI-enabled systems. This allows the drives to support up to twice as many AI channels (16 AI channels/32 AI streams) than the competition and is future ready for more capable systems.
