QNAP has launched the HS-453DX, a silent NAS that features an Intel Celeron quad-core processor, HDMI 2.0 output, 4K real-time transcoding and 10GbE high-speed connectivity. 

Powered by an Intel Celeron J4105 quad-core 1.5GHz processor with 4GB/8GB DDR4 memory and two 3.5-inch SATA 6Gb/s drive bays, the HS-453DX delivers up to 677 MB/s write/read speeds. 

With two M.2 2280 SATA SSD slots, the HS-453DX also provides a hybrid storage structure with SSD caching reinforcing traditional hard drives, helping to optimise the performance of demanding applications. 

"From TVs to game consoles to mobile devices, 4K enjoys full-spectrum support throughout modern digital homes,” said Jason Hsu, Product Manager of QNAP.

“With the larger file sizes and higher bitrates of 4K media files, home users require a suitable storage solution to deliver a smooth multimedia experience. The HS-453DX not only features an HDMI 2.0 port for direct 4K 60Hz output, but also supports M.2 SSD caching and 10GbE connectivity to empower smooth streaming and fast file transfers. With its set-top-box design and fanless cooling, the silent HS-453DX is a perfect fit for modern living rooms.”

The HS-453DX provides a wide range of multimedia applications including dual-channel 4K real-time transcoding, Plex Media Server, Cinema28 and OceanKTV.
