Apollo Video Technology, a company focused on the advancement of mobile video surveillance technologies, has recently arranged to provide removable solid-state drives for RoadRunner Digital Video Recorders.
The removable solid-state drives will increase reliability against shock and extend longevity for on-board recording media. They will also double the life span of the drive as compared to traditional rotating-disk hard drives.
Officials said that existing customers will have the option to upgrade standard previously installed hard-disk drives to the new solid-state drive.
The drives, which have no moving parts, are enclosed in protected housing with shock dampeners. This will help lessen the force of impact and vibration commonly found in mobile environments. The new solid-state drives are currently available in 120GB, 240GB and 480GB sizes.
"In harsh mobile environments where proper technology operation is critical, agencies now have additional protection against data loss in a severe crash or impact to the recording media," said Rodell Notbohm, general manager of Apollo Video Technology, in a release. "Apollo Video designs state-of-the-art mobile surveillance hardware that exceeds our customers' expectations. Our goal is to supply transit agencies with durable equipment and compatibility throughout the lifetime of their fleets."
