Seagate First to Launch Hard Drives for Artificial Intelligence (AI) Based Surveillance
Analytics on video surveillance hardware is growing exponentially as hardware manufacturers continue to include sophisticated analytic features on network video recorders (NVRs) and cameras. Complex deep learning and machine learning applications (such as facial recognition and the identification of irregular behaviour) which are becoming increasingly prevalent, can only be deployed by making use of Artificial Intelligence (AI). In parallel, the need for fast video analytics and superior storage solutions will grow in demand as the workload burden on NVR storage significantly increases. Welcome Seagate SkyHawk AI. The SkyHawk AI range is ideal for intensive computational workloads that typically accompany AI work streams, as its high throughput and enhanced caching deliver low latency and excellent random read performance to quickly locate and deliver video images and footage analysis. This enables on-the-edge decision making, eliminating the latency of processing. The SkyHawk AI range is the future of video surveillance storage and will optimize efficiency in all applications.
