QNAP Systems, Inc.  released the Turbo NAS QTS 4.1.2 operating system, introducing NAS Installation over HDMI – a pioneering function in the NAS market that allows installing a NAS without a network connection, and adds several new features including VPN Server support, VPN Client support, block-based LUN backup, subtitle (.SRT) support for Video Station and File Station, embedding subtitles into transcoded videos, Chromecast streaming, and more.
“We have made many enhancements to the business and home features in QTS 4.1.2 to provide a better user experience and to make the Turbo NAS a great companion in the workplace and for home entertainment,” said Willy Kuo, product manager of QNAP.
QNAP is the first NAS provider to provide NAS installation over HDMI. Users can now enjoy extreme convenience by setting up their Turbo NAS locally without a network connection: just connect a keyboard, mouse and HDMI monitor to the Turbo NAS, and the NAS installation process can be completed effortlessly. “NAS installation over HDMI is a breakthrough innovation that eliminates many difficulties that users may encounter when initially setting up their NAS. No complicated procedures are necessary, no network expertise is required, and it helps users to quickly finish installing their NAS just like operating a PC,” added Kuo.
VPN options have also been added, with the Turbo NAS now being able to act as a VPN Server or to support a VPN Client for PPTP and OpenVPN protocols. This is especially useful for companies who need secure inter-office networking or to protect user privacy when the Turbo NAS is downloading data. Through the Storage Manager, administrators can replicate content in both file-based LUN and block-based LUN to various storage destinations to recover data.
New features for home entertainment include supporting subtitles (.SRT files) in Video Station and File Station, and transcoding videos with embedded subtitles. The QAirplay&Chromecast app, available in the App Center, can stream media content directly on TV via AirPlay-enabled or Chromecast devices, providing users with flexible options for their multimedia experience. Users can also install Qfile & Qvideo on their mobile devices to flexibly stream media stored on their Turbo NAS via Apple TV or Chromecast.
