WD AV hard drives take advantage of significant design advances in WD's storage technology by incorporating SilkStream streaming with whisper quiet acoustics and thermally optimized operation. These design advances, coupled with 7200 RPM performance enable unparalleled reliability and low cost of ownership for manufacturers of digital video recording devices that require 24x7 reliability. Noise levels have been minimized to less than one sone – virtually below the threshold of human hearin. SilkStream - Optimized for smooth, continuous digital video playback of up to twelve simultaneous HD streams. SilkStream is compatible with the ATA streaming command set allowing CE customers to use standard streaming management and error recovery options. Ramp Load - Parks the recording heads off the disk surface during spin up, spin down, and when the drive is off. This ensures the recording head never touches the disk surface resulting in improved long term reliability due to less head wear, and improved non operational shock tolerance. Preemptive Wear Leveling (PWL) - The drive arm frequently sweeps across the disk to reduce uneven wear on the drive surface common to audio video streaming applications. WD AV SATA and PATA drives are ideal for PVR/DVR, DVD recorders, surveillance video recorders, and other video streaming applications. Compatible - Tested for compatibility in a broad range of AV products including set top boxes, DVD recorders, and mainstream surveillance systems.
