Mac and Windows multimedia collaboration workstations
The TS-453BT3 is the perfect fit for Thunderbolt ™ 3 Mac users (and is compatible with Thunderbolt 2 Mac devices by
using adapters). With immense transfer speeds, Thunderbolt ™ 3 enables smoother video editing and faster sharing, and
is especially suitable for multimedia professionals working with 4K and 3D content. The TS-453BT3 can connect to two
Thunderbolt ™ 3 devices to handle real-time media editing simultaneously without affecting NAS performance. As Final
Cut Pro® X 10.3 supports SMB protocol file sharing, Windows® users and other devices connected via Thunderbolt ™ 3 or
network ports can join the audio-visual editing workflow.
Note: Thunderbolt ™ 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 adapters may have compatibility issues with some Windows PCs. Users should confirm compatibility before purchasing
adapters. It is highly recommended to use a Thunderbolt ™ 3 certified cable (purchased separately) and to configure a RAID 5 with high-efficiency SSD for optimal file
transfer and storage performance.
Access 10GbE network resources with a Mac
The TS-453BT3 provides an innovative T2E Converter (Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet Converter) that allows Macs to access
10GbE networks through the Thunderbolt ™ 3 interface on the TS-453BT3. It is especially suitable for team collaboration
in 10GbE network environments.

QTS 4.3 - The smart, intuitive NAS operating system
TS-453BT3 4-bay Thunderbolt™ 3 NAS
Simple and stylish design
The TS-453BT3's new slider design and tool-less 3.5-inch hard drive installation allows for easy installation and
maintenance. The OLED screen design shows the TS-453BT3's status at a glance, including CPU operation, system
temperature, fan speed, hard disk capacity and temperature, Volume and LUN capacity and other information. The
capacitive touch button design is not only dustproof, but also provides a variety of settings to allow you easily wake up
the screen, change network IP settings and host password, restart or shutdown the system.
Improved backup strategy
QNAP provides reliable, resilient backup and disaster recovery solutions to help users organize their data backup tasks costeffectively and efficiently.
Windows® and Mac® backups
Back up and restore data on Windows®
computers with the free QNAP NetBak
Replicator backup tool. Time Machine® is
supported for Mac® users to protect their
data.
Volume and LUN snapshots
Snapshots are important for backing up
data, allowing users to easily revert files
and data to when the snapshots were
taken. Snapshots are essential for
businesses and organizations - and are
especially useful for mitigating the threat
posed by ransomware. The TS-453BT3
supports up to 256 snapshots of a single
Volume/LUN and up to 1024 snapshots in
total.
Hybrid Backup Sync
By integrating data backup, recovery and
synchronization functions (including RTRR,
rsync, FTP, and CIFS/SMB), Hybrid Backup
Sync helps backup or synchronize data
from TS-453BT3 to another QNAP NAS,
remote server, or cloud storage for
centralized management of backup and
disaster recovery plans.
Virtual machine backup
The TS-453BT3 provides high-capacity
storage, integrated virtualization
applications, supports mainstream
third-party virtualization solutions, and
provides snapshot capabilities to fully
capture system states. It is the best choice
for virtual machine backup.
QTS 4.3 - The smart, intuitive NAS
operating system
The QNAP NAS operating system - QTS - provides
applications and features that empower business users,
personal productivity, and multimedia enjoyment. With
multiple smart agent services and automation tools,
users can manage their QNAP NAS more easily, flexibly
and efficiently. The built-in App Center also provides a
variety of applications to extend NAS functionality. QTS
breaks barriers between different devices, platforms and
geography, providing unlimited freedom in your cloud
experience.
File sharing and synchronization
The TS-453BT3 supports SMB, NFS and AFP,
allowing you to quickly share files between
Windows® , Mac ® , Linux ®/UNIX® and other
devices. With QNAP Qsync, the TS-453BT3 is
turned into a large-capacity and secure data
store. Any file uploaded to the TS-453BT3
is available on your desktops, laptops, and
mobile devices that are connected to the TS453BT3. You can also synchronize sharing
folders, enhance group collaboration and
share files in a flexible manner.
4K HDMI output and real-time video transfer and sharing
The TS-453BT3 can easily become a HTPC by using its native 4K HDMI output and free remote control. Both Linux Station
and HD Station can be used with HDMI output for enjoying multimedia, browsing the internet, or using virtual machines.
The buttons on the remote control can also be customized by using QButton. Individual buttons can have common tasks
assigned to them, such as listening to music, shutting down the NAS, or watching a surveillance channel. The TS-453BT3
uses the powerful 9th-generation Intel® HD Graphics that supports 2 channel 4K (H.264/H.265) video hardware decoding
playback and transcoding, allowing videos to be converted to universal formats for viewing on various devices.* When
working on video projects, this allows you to quickly convert your work to various resolutions for sharing with clients and
partners - who may be viewing on various devices or be bandwidth-constrained.
Note: The TS-453BT3 hardware specifications provides H.264 and H.265 8-bit hardware acceleration decoding, encoding, and transcoding. Video rendering quality may vary
depending on the player software, file format, system resource usage, and network bandwidth.

Smart file searching and organization with Qsirch & Qfiling
The Qsirch full-text search engine supports searching
through over 6,000 file types and provides more than 30
filters to customize search results. Suggested results are
also displayed with actual results to provide a greater
search scope. Qfiling helps to archive files scattered across
folders, reducing the time needed to manually organize files
and folders and making a search-friendly file structure for
increased productivity. You can customize the scheduling
program to periodically move new files into designated
folder.s The "suggested recipes" feature allows you to save
frequently-used archive conditions as exclusive recipes, so
that you can save time for repeat setup, and complete filing
tasks with a simple keystroke.
24/7 Security monitoring solution
Surveillance Station supports more than 3,000 IP camera models with broad compatibility and scalable IP camera channel
licenses. With Surveillance Station, you can easily set up a professional security monitoring center and use IP cameras
for real-time monitoring, video recording and playback. With the Vmobile mobile app (available for iOS® and Android)
you can monitor your surveillance system from anywhere on your mobile device. You can also install the Vcam mobile
app to turn your mobile device into a camera and instantly record footage to your NAS. The TS-453BT3 provides 4 free
IP camera channel licenses. Additional licenses (up to 40 channels) can be purchased as-needed. QVR Pro (Beta Edition)
creates exclusive video storage space on the TS-453BT3 while enjoying the benefits of NAS storage expansion and QTS
storage management. You can freely adjust the ratio and position of each camera screen and click on the timeline in live
monitoring mode to quickly switch the video screen to the correct time point. You can also view real-time videos and
video playback of different channels in a single interface. QVR Pro also has camera batch addition and editing capabilities,
and support for cross-network segment auto-search, thus substantially reducing monitoring system setup time and
maintenance costs. With QUSBCam2, you can turn the USB webcam into an ONVIF camera and connect to the NAS to see
real time footage. By using USB webcams, you can bolster your surveillance system without a large budget.
Natively run virtual machines and software containers
