QNAP QTS + Android™ dual-system NAS hits the market
In the cloud era, data is alive, ever-changing, and ever-growing for businesses and families. With daily use of computers, smart phones, gaming
devices and tablets, we are constantly generating new audio and video files and documents. And data is no longer static information stored
and archived, but an active entity that promotes interaction in everyday life. QNAP is creating solutions to fit the increasing demands of this
data-explosive era with a complete portfolio of network storage. However, in order to locally display NAS contents, you normally need to use
expensive higher-grade NAS. How would you accomplish this with relatively lower-priced NAS?
After a year of intensive research and innovation, the successful integration of QNAP QTS (QNAP NAS operating system) and Android™ realizes
this objective by introducing the industry’s first dual-system NAS with the capability of centralized storage and local display on a single device.
By connecting an HDMI display, the TAS-168/268 is able to display the contents on Android™ on a big-screen TV. Aside from playing multimedia
on the TAS-168/268, it also supports online streaming including YouTube ™ and Spotify®, which can be installed via Google Play™. What’s
more, the TAS-168/268 has terabytes of storage to store precious photos for lifelong memories and a vast collection of audio and video files.
Compared with mobile Android™ devices with the biggest capacity (128GB*), the TAS-168/268 with 2TB capacity has 16 times more storage
space for a more satisfying personal collection and enjoyable entertainment.
* The capacity shown here is directly replicated from the product’s specifications as of September, 2015.
