QNAP Unveils the Industry-leading Thunderbolt 3 NAS - TVS-1582TU, Ideal for SNG/OB Van Live Media Production
Taipei, Taiwan, May 17, 2017 - QNAP® Systems, Inc. today released the TVS-1582TU – a pioneering 19-inch rack-mountable Thunderbolt™ 3 NAS that is suited for moving vehicles and outdoor media editing environments. The TVS-1582TU includes four Thunderbolt™ 3 ports, two 10GbE ports, and can utilize its Thunderbolt 3 ports to have USB-C 3.1 Gen2 (10 Gbps) connections for high-speed data transfer and backups. The collection of high-speed connections provides an ideal 4K solution for SNG/OB van live productions in the fast-paced media industries.
“TV and film production and outdoor broadcasting require on-location recording and editing, and need their videos to be backed up immediately to prevent file loss,” said David Tsao, Product Manager of QNAP, adding “The TVS-1582TU is designed for this environment, and its 19-inch rack form factor makes it especially usable for SNG/OB van live media production that requires frequent relocation.”
Powered by a high-performance 7th Generation Intel® Core™ i5 or Core™ i7 quad-core processor, the TVS-1582TU features high-bandwidth Thunderbolt 3 along with 10GbE connectivity to boost media collaboration as a multi-tasking Thunderbolt/NAS/iSCSI triple solution. It is a perfect companion for Thunderbolt-equipped Mac® and Windows® users for 4K workflows, file storage and high-speed sharing. With QNAP’s innovative Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet (T2E) technology, computers without Ethernet ports can access 10GbE network resources over a Thunderbolt connection to the TVS-1582TU to enjoy flexible and cost-effective data transfer methods.
The TVS-1582TU is a 15-bay hybrid storage solution that supports 3.5-inch hard drives and 2.5-inch hard drives/SSDs in one unit. With Qtier™ Technology that drives Auto Tiering, the TVS-1582TU continuously optimizes storage efficiency across high-performance SSD and high-capacity SATA drives with boosted performance to empower dynamic high-resolution media and virtualization applications. The TVS-1582TU supports 4K @30Hz through HDMI output for direct multimedia display.
The robust TVS-1582TU and the intelligent QTS 4.3 operating system provides an all-in-one NAS solution for storage, backup/restoration, sharing, remote access, and management. Advanced business applications include: QRM+ (QNAP Remote Manager Plus) centralized management solution for discovering, mapping, monitoring and managing critical networked devices (including servers, PCs, and thin clients) with a graphical topology diagram; Virtualization Station that hosts Windows, Linux®, UNIX®, and Android™ based virtual machines on the NAS; Container Station to empower near-limitless LXC and Docker® containerized apps and IoT development; Qfiling and Qsirch to optimize data storage operations by providing automatic file organization and rapid file searching.
The TVS-1582TU accommodates up to 90 TB raw capacity (using 10 TB 3.5-inch hard drives), and can be expanded by connecting up to six QNAP Thunderbolt expansion enclosures (TX-800P or TX-500P) or a QNAP USB expansion enclosure (UX-1200U-RP, UX-800U-RP, UX-800P or UX-500P). The storage capacity can also be expanded by using VJBOD (Virtual JBOD) that leverages the unused storage capacity of other QNAP NAS, providing a reliable, high-capacity storage solution for the growing high-resolution media files.
