This morning Seagate unveiled the industry's first 3.5-inch 4TB hard disk drive that was specifically engineered for use in video applications such as digital video recorders, set top boxes, and the recording of video surveillance. The new drive can store up to 480 hours of high-definition content, making it ideal for video storage.

The Video 3.5 HDD is ideal for satellite and cable providers as it features capacities up to 4TB with the drive being able to support up to 16 simultaneous HD streams or 20 standard-definition streams as well as 24x7 operational uptime. This would also make an excellent HDD for those looking to record feeds from several security cameras at once.

"Leveraging Seagate's 10 years of experience understanding the requirements of the video market, we've combined our knowledge on heat, acoustics and power to deliver what we believe to be the most reliable DVR drive in the world," said Scott Horn, Seagate vice president of marketing. "Our commitment to deliver a drive with unrivaled reliability ensures the safekeeping of consumers' content as well as keeping DVRs, STBs, and surveillance systems in the field longer."
