WD Purple Surveillance Storage is built for 24/7 always-on surveillance in highdefinition security systems that use up to eight hard drives and up to 32 cameras. Exclusive AllFrame technology works with ATA streaming to reduce error pixilation and video interruptions that occur when desktop hard drives are incorrectly used as storage in security systems.
Desktop drives vs. surveillance-class storage
WD Purple surveillance-class storage has been tested to be compatible in a widerange of security systems. These drives are designed to replace standard desktop drives that were not designed for the harsh 24/7 always-on, high-definition surveillance environment. Desktop drives are built to run for only short intervals and are not engineered to withstand high-temperature fluctuations and equipment vibrations found in a typical surveillance application.
Improve performance with AllFrame
WD Purple surveillance-class hard drives are equipped with AllFrame technology which works with ATA streaming to reduce frame loss, improve playback and increases the number of drive bays supported. AllFrame reduces video interruptions that commonly occur when desktop hard drives are incorrectly used as storage in security systems. Missed frames and lost footage is a serious problem when an event occurs and surveillance footage needs to be retrieved. WD Purple with AllFrame provides the confidence you should expect when it’s time to play back and review critical surveillance footage.
Engineered for compatibility
WD Purple surveillance hard drives are built for compatibility with industryleading chassis and chip set manufacturers for seamless integration into your new or existing video surveillance system. Check out our compatibility selector to find out what surveillance drive is right for you.
Optimized performance for up to 32 HD cameras
WD Purple hard drives are optimized to support up to 32 high-definition surveillance cameras, giving you the flexibility to upgrade and expand your security system in the future.
Lower power consumption
Low power consumption is crucial in high-temperature always-on surveillance environments. With exclusive IntelliSeek™ technology, WD Purple drives calculate the optimum seek speeds which lowers power consumption, noise and vibration that can damage and cause drives to wear out more quickly. When you invest in a premium surveillance-class drive you worry less while enjoying the benefits over a longer period of time.

Superior storage. Superior surveillance
WD Purple drives are built for 24/7, always-on, high-definition security systems. With support for up to 8 hard drives and 32 cameras, WD Purple drives are optimized for surveillance. WD Purple surveillance storage also comes with WD’s exclusive AllFrame technology, so you can confidently create a security system tailored to the needs of your business. Using AllFrame technology, WD Purple drives improve ATA streaming to reduce errors, pixilation, and video interruptions that happen when the wrong drive is used in your video recorder system.
The right drive for the right job
WD Purple drives have been engineered specifically for surveillance, so they’re able to withstand the extreme heat fluctuations and equipment vibrations within an DVR environment. An average desktop drive is built to run for only short intervals, not the harsh 24/7 always-on environment of a high-definition surveillance system. A disruption to a drive could result in a failure that impacts multiple users, your security archive, or even the entire system. With WD Purple, you get reliable, surveillance-class storage that’s tested for compatibility in a wide-range of security systems.

Trust your view with AllFrame
Missed frames and lost footage is a serious problem when video surveillance needs to be retrieved. With an ordinary desktop hard drive, errors and video interruptions are common, but not with WD Purple. All WD Purple drives are equipped with AllFrame technology, which improves ATA streaming to reduce frame loss, improve overall video playback, and increase the number of drives supported within a DVR.Features:
- Engineered specifically for surveillance security systems.
- Reduced video frame loss.
- Tuned for write-intensive, low bit-rate, high stream-count applications typical to most surveillance applications.
- Prioritized write-operations for maximized surveillance performance.
- TLER & ATA streaming support.
- Support for up to eight drives.
Less power. More efficient
Low power consumption is a necessity in a high-temperature, always-on surveillance environment. With our exclusive IntelliSeek technology, WD Purple drives are able to calculate optimum seek speeds, keeping power consumption low so ambient noise and vibrations that would damage an ordinary desktop drive are at a minimum.
