Western Digital Unveils MicroSD Card for AI-Enabled Security Cameras
Western Digital introduced a microSD card for designers and manufacturers of AI-enabled security cameras, smart video surveillance and advanced edge devices at ISC West.
LAS VEGAS — Western Digital Corp. unveiled its new WD Purple SC QD312 Extreme Endurance microSD card at ISC West today.
The company says the microSD card is for designers and manufacturers of AI-enabled security cameras, smart video surveillance and advanced edge devices that capture and store video at higher bit rates than mainstream cameras.
As 4K and higher video resolutions and smart cameras with built-in AI become more common, storage with higher capacity, more intelligence and greater durability is increasingly required, according to the company.
Western Digital says this small form factor storage solution was created to meet the demands of extreme endurance, high capacity and challenging environments for the edge storage to confidently store high-quality video while reducing the need for frequent replacements.
“The complex storage requirements of the growing security camera market are set to push the status quo with modern advanced edge and smart video devices. Surveillance customers look to durable and reliable devices with intelligent monitoring to save time and investments,” says Oded Sagee, senior director, devices, Western Digital. “With the microSD card introduced today, we are leveraging the power of 3D NAND to ensure no-compromise, primary, on-camera storage for high bit-rate video and advanced functionality for some of the latest AI-enabled smart cameras.”
