In the past, Bilderbunker had used similar products but had concerns regarding security issues and lack of features. After hearing of QNAP by word of mouth, Bilderbunker decided to adopt the QNAP TVS-871T. Powered by a quad-core Intel® Core™ i5/i7 processor with 16 GB RAM, the QNAP TVS-871T is the world's first Thunderbolt™ DAS/NAS/iSCSI SAN triple solution that provides the performance, bandwidth, and connectivity to revolutionize the IT infrastructure of small-to-medium enterprises.
4K video files are huge and require lots of bandwidth to transfer and edit them. With up to 20 Gb/s available bandwidth (twenty times normal Ethernet network bandwidth), these files are copied incredibly quickly.
USB One-touch Copy
New footage can be instantly imported to the NAS by connecting cameras to the front-panel USB port and by pushing the copy button.
While 4K is the target resolution for a lot of Bilderbunker's projects, the ability to quickly transcode these videos to 1080p and other resolutions allows them to easily preview them on a wide range of devices including PCs, Smart TVs and smartphones.
Near-instant file search
When importing older recordings and media, some of these files may be hard to find as they may not be organized or saved in a user-friendly manner. With QNAP's proprietary Qsirch search engine, these files can be easily found based on keywords, metadata, date/time, and other conditions.
Alongside its two Thunderbolt™ 2 ports, the TVS-871T also features a wide range of connectivity options for networks and for USB devices. There are two 10GbE ports for high-speed networks, four 1GbE ports for conventional networks and five USB ports (3x 3.0, 2x 2.0) for connecting additional devices and storages.
The QNAP TVS-871T Thunderbolt™ NAS was able to increase Bilderbunker's productivity by up to 40%. They were able to process footage more efficiently, reduce their turnaround times and deliver content faster to their clients. The TVS-871T's ease of use also freed them from the tedium of managing their data, allowing them to dedicate all of their efforts into their content creation. With a TVS-871T at the heart of their IT infrastructure, Bilderbunker have a solid base to grow their business and to continue providing high-quality content.
