Real-time & offline HD video transcoding
The TS-451 delivers superior real-time Full HD video transcoding to convert your videos to formats that can be smoothly played on PCs, mobile devices and Smart TVs. It allows for up to 5 devices to simultaneously view different videos stored on the TS-451 with on-the-fly hardware accelerated transcoding. The TS-451 allows you to enjoy instant videos on multiple devices - even those that lack computing power or have limited file format support - without the need for complicated and time-consuming file conversion.
With the benefit of offline transcoding, if you can only connect to an Internet connection with limited/restricted bandwidth, you can still enjoy smooth videos by selecting a pre-rendered lower resolution to play the videos via File Station, Video Station, or the Qfile app for iOS & Android without affecting the TS-451’s performance running other applications. This also allows more people to play videos via streaming. The TS-451 also allows you to set a dedicated folder for automatic video transcoding.
Stream media via DLNA, AirPlay, and Plex
You can use DLNA-compatible devices such as HDTVs, Smart TVs, Sony® PS3, Microsoft® Xbox 360 and Hi-Fi systems to enjoy HD quality videos and high-resolution audio content such as DSD (Direct Stream Digital) audio format stored on the TS-451. You can also use the Qfile app on an iOS device to browse videos and photos stored on the TS-451 and play on the TV via Apple TV. By installing the QAirplay app, available on the QTS App Center, you can stream your media content directly on a TV via Apple TV. The media contents are streaming on Apple TV, bypassing your mobile device, thus saving the energy of your mobile device. The TS-451's support for Plex Media Server organizes all of your media with rich information and transforms the TS-451 into a powerful & easy to use streaming machine with DLNA, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and Google TV support.
Extend the functionality of the TS-451 with Virtualization
Introducing the world’s first consumer-grade NAS with integrated virtualization technology. The Virtualization Station transforms the TS-451 into a 2-in-a-box NAS that can function as an all-in-one NAS and a virtualization platform supporting multiple operating systems, fast virtual machine creation, virtual machine import/export, snapshot, and enables desktop operations on web browsers. With the easy-to-use interface, you can centrally manage all of the virtual machines created on the TS-451 with minimal effort. You can also download VMs on demand from online VM markets and import them to TS-451 without any complex procedure.
