Product Spotlight – Micron


Micron, manufacturer of edge storage solutions for video applications, presents the world’s first 1.5TB microSD delivers industrial storage for AI-enhanced video security. 

With rising demand for real-time video security, the internet protocol video security and video security-as-a-service (VSaaS) market is estimated to be worth $83 billion by 2030*. Fleet dash cameras, smart home security, police body cameras and AI-enabled cameras in factories all need storage capable of handling media-rich data. As the world’s highest-capacity microSD card, Micron’s i400 is ideally suited for video storage at the edge and hybrid VSaaS deployments.   

The substantial 1.5TB density can store up to four months or 120 days of video security media locally, enabling users to optimise what data is stored in the cloud**. The high capacity eliminates the need to continuously upload data to the cloud for primary storage, a process that guzzles network bandwidth and operational expenses. Small businesses looking to reduce expensive bandwidth or remote sites — such as cargo ships or oil rigs with limited connectivity — can instead periodically upload data to the cloud for backup while relying day to day on i400 storage at the edge. Bringing primary storage to the edge enables real-time AI analytics and faster decision-making within smart cameras. This speed is especially crucial for critical law enforcement, public health or safety decisions.  

Unlike most cards on the market that are consumer-grade and have limited write capability, the i400 is designed for the video security environment with features such as***:   

High Endurance  

Supports up to 5 years of high-quality, continuous, 24/7 video recording and up to 4 months of storage** with the highest-capacity microSD card in the world.  

Outstanding Recording Performance  

The optimised design delivers sustained performance for concurrent 4K video recording and up to 8 AI capture events every second.   

Industrial Quality  

Reliable high quality provides a 2 million hour mean time to failure (MTTF) rating, plus 5-proof protection encompassing water, shock, x-ray, magnet and impact.   

Smart Management  

Health monitoring tracks usage and card health, and the field firmware update provides a secure way for the card to be updated remotely when needed.
