STX) today introduced its Seagate SV35.5 Series hard drives, designed for
optimal performance in digital video surveillance systems. The Seagate SV35.5
hard drive is built for rigorous 24x7 use, and combines best-in-class

    The Seagate SV35.5 hard drive provides a number of key advantages for
video surveillance environments over standard hard drives including:
performance-tuned 140 MB/s sustained sequential data rates and ATA-7 streaming
commands for high-speed transfers, enhanced caching capabilities and built-in
error recovery for non-stop streaming, thermal monitoring and reporting,
unique user-selectable partitioning, low spin-up power, and best-in-class
acoustics for extremely quiet operation.

    With disk capacities from 250GB to 1TB, the Seagate SV35.5 hard drive
offers flexible DVR design capabilities as a video surveillance DVR, network
DVR, or for direct and network-attached JBOD video surveillance storage.

of video system manufacturers and integrators," said Carla Kennedy, senior
vice president of Seagate's Enterprise Product Line Management group. "With
