The TS-453A innovatively supports the open-source Linux® platform as a gateway for IoT solutions to other smart devices. The TS-453A allows users to directly utilize various feature-rich Linux apps, enjoying a private cloud combining storage and IoT applications, and professional developers can develop and run IoT applications directly on the TS-453A. The secure, reliable TS-453A is packed with business-critical features such as Volume/LUN Snapshot – allowing files/folders to revert to a previous state in case of any corruption or file-loss. The TS-453A is powered by the latest quad-core Intel® Celeron® processor which allows users to enjoy 4K (H.264) video playback and 1080p/4K video real-time transcoding directly from the TS-453A to an HD/4K display. The TS-453A comes with dual HDMI outputs for using two monitors in either a “duplicated” or “extended” desktop configuration. Duplicating will display the same content on both displays, and extended desktop mode allows users to display applications over two displays for improved multitasking convenience and productivity.
When displaying content using HDMI outputs, you can use the TS-453A as an amazing multimedia player by using HD Station to enjoy rich apps including Kodi™, HD Player, Plex Home Theater, YouTube™, Spotify®, JRiver, Google Chrome™, Mozilla Firefox®, and more. Alternatively, you can choose to output the Linux® operating system desktop to use the TS-453A as a PC. QNAP HD Station integrates the powerful Kodi™ media player and web browser. With HDMI connectivity, you can connect the TS-453A to a HDTV or an A/V receiver to enjoy your rich multimedia content and 4K( H.264) videos with the best audiovisual experience. The splendid user interface of Kodi™, 7.1 channel audio passthrough*, and the TS-453A’s powerful real-time transcoding capability facilitate smooth and enhanced playback of 4K videos **. You can even watch YouTube™ videos, surf the web and manage the TS-453A using a web browser with multilingual keyboard input. HD Station supports multi-tasking and user authentication so only authorized users can access the stored data.
The TS-453A includes a QNAP remote control for you to conveniently control HD Station through its built-in IR receiver. With the help of the new smart remote control learning function, you can pair up to three TV or stereo IR remote controls and program your frequently-used buttons and functions. From now on, you'll never again live in fear of losing or damaging your dedicated remote controls***. You can also turn your mobile devices into remote controls by installing the Qremote app. https://www.qnap.com/i/en/product/model.php?II=212
