Apollo Video Technology (Apollo Video) will now provide removable solid-state drives for the RoadRunner Digital Video Recorders. This offering increases reliability against shock and extends longevity for on-board recording media. Existing customers have the option to upgrade standard previously installed hard-disk drives to the new solid-state drive.
Solid-state drives (SSDs) allow for optimal reliability and protection against shock. With no moving parts, the drives are enclosed in protected housing with shock dampeners. This added safeguard lessens the force of impact and vibration commonly found in mobile environments. Solid-state drives will double the life span of the drive– as compared to traditional rotating-disk hard drives. 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. “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.”
