SkyHawk™ monitoring hard drives are optimised for DVR and NVR devices, designed for workloads in continuous operation and offer storage capacities up to 10 TB. SkyHawk is equipped with the enhanced ImagePerfect™ firmware, which helps to minimise reductions in image refresh rates and downtime, with a workload rate that is three times as high as desktop hard drives and capacity for up to 64 HD cameras.

SkyHawk is smart
The innovative ImagePerfect firmware allows smooth, clear video streaming for active environments that require monitoring around the clock. This means your business can always rely on outstanding protection.

And SkyHawk is vigilant
  • Optimised to record 90% of the time and supports up to 64 cameras
  • Up to 10 TB or 10,000 hours of HD videos
  • Workload rate of 180 TB/year, which is three times as high as desktop hard drives. Covered by a limited 3-year warranty

Improved security
With SkyHawk monitoring hard drives, absolutely nothing will pass you by again, even in risky environments. SkyHawk’s high workload rate, low power consumption and RV sensors can improve the long-term reliability of the hard drive. SkyHawk also offers reliable performance at operating temperatures of between 0°C and 70°C, while tarnish-resistant components ensure additional protection during practical use.

Better performance for longer
SkyHawk scales according to your requirements and provides reliable performance in systems with multiple hard drives. Monitoring systems with multiple hard drives can rely on SkyHawk’s RAID-optimised hardware, increasing the service life of hard drives and systems.
Thanks to its RV sensors (standard equipment on all SkyHawk hard drives with 4 to 10 TB), this hard drive provides reliable performance for DVR and NVR systems with more than eight hard drives.
In a RAID environment, the RV sensors increase vibration tolerance so that hard drive performance remains consistently high.
