Highest capacity for audio/video storage
WD AV SATA drives now offer unrivaled storage capacity up to 4TB – perfect for today’s storage intensive applications.
These drives are designed to last in high temperature always-on streaming digital audio/video environments such as PVR/DVR and IPTV systems.
Low Capacity Surveillance
WD AV drives offer 500GB and lower capacities suitable for low profile entry level surveillance systems requiring reliability in always on environments.
Reduced power consumption
WD AV drives consume less power by up to 40 percent compared to 7200 RPM hard drives. Lower power means less heat and greater reliability.
Optimized for smooth, continuous digital video playback of up to 16 simultaneous HD streams. SilkStream is compatible with the ATA streaming command set so CE customers can use standard streaming management and error recovery options.
Calculates optimum seek speeds to lower power consumption, noise, and vibration.
A fine-tuned balance of spin speed, transfer rate, and caching algorithms designed to deliver both significant power savings and solid performance.
Advanced Format (AF)
Technology adopted by WD and other drive manufacturers as one of multiple ways to continue growing hard drive capacities. AF is a more efficient media format that enables increased areal densities. (EURS/EURX/AUDX models only)
Noise levels have been minimized to less than one sone* – virtually below the threshold of human hearing.
* A sone is a subjective unit of loudness as perceived by a person with normal hearing
