SkyHawk AI provides bandwidth and processing power to manage always-on, data-intensive workloads, while simultaneously analyzing and recording footage from 64 HD cameras. It also supports 16 AI cameras with minimized dropped frames, reduced downtime and can withstand 24/7 operations. The drive is equipped with Seagate ImagePerfect AI firmware, which means it can record high quality, sharp video footages while simultaneously facilitating AI-enabled NVR analytics. The technology used ensures that the files gathered through video surveillance are properly stored and easily accessible.

The SkyHawk storage capacity ranges from 1 TB up to 14 TB and with a workload capacity of 180 TB per year for the normal Skyhawk, while the Skyhawk AI can withstand up to 550 TB workload per year.

Dahua Technology made an early start in AI applications and has since made several achievements in the industry with the launch of their IVSS series. Through this partnership, Seagate’s advanced technology complements Dahua’s data storage challenges with their facial recognition, automatic number-plate recognition (ANPR), predictive focus algorithm (PFA), and other advanced video analytics features.  In addition, this strategic partnership between Dahua Technology and Seagate can boost the AI application across the surveillance industry.
