Hikvision: Right Drive for the Right Application

AI-surveillance environments require reliable, high-performance solutions that will securely store large amounts of data.

“Seagate drives enable us to write at a very high speed, and also read back the data at a very high speed. We are now at a point where surveillance data can be used for heat mapping for retail environment and even saving lives.”

Gary Harmer, Sales Director at Hikvision UK & Ireland
