Hikvision, the Chinese supplier of video surveillance products, hosted a joint seminar with Western Digital, the supplier of hard drives, at the Ramada Hotel in Dubai on September 18. The seminar was held to promote Hikvision’s Turbo HD Analog Solution and WD’s Purple hard drives, attracting over 100 security people from more than 50 companies.
The seminar ran in two segments. The first featured presentations of Hikvision corporate development and its vertical applications, as well as a live demonstration of Hikvision’s Turbo HD. It enables up to 500m HD video transmission over coaxial cable and offers compatibility with traditional SD cameras, HDTVI-compliant cameras and DVRs, as well as IP cameras. In the second segment, WD introduced their latest Purple hard drives. Designed for video surveillance units, these hard drives come with up to eight hard drives and up to 32 high-definition (HD) video cameras. The product offers up to 4TB of hard drive space.
Max Wei, General Manager of the Hikvision Middle East branch, said: “This seminar was a great success. It helps our customers better understand Hikvision technical capabilities and solutions available in the Middle East market. We are excited to be co-marketing with WD to showcase our latest technologies and products, and we look forward to working together with them in the future.”
And Khwaja Saifuddin, Senior Sales Director for WD Middle East, Africa & South Asia, said: “The storage and integrity of video surveillance data is a crucial aspect of modern security systems. This joint seminar allowed us to demonstrate the unsurpassed reliability, quality and peace of mind that the WD Purple hard drive offers Hikvision and security professionals when storing their valuable video data. The drive is designed with exclusive AllFrame technology to reduce video data errors and video interruptions. It is also durable for today’s 24/7 always-on video surveillance applications amidst harsh environmental conditions.”
