4K HDMI output with a free remote control for an excellent audiovisual experience
The TVS-1282T3 comes with three HDMI ports (4K 30hz output) for using three monitors in either "duplicated" or "extended" desktop configuration*. You can connect the TVS-1282T3 to a HDTV or A/V receiver and use the media player in HybridDesk Station (HD Station) to enjoy rich media content and 4K videos. HD Station supports multi-tasking and user authentication so only authorized users can access the stored data. Besides using the bundled remote control, you can also turn your mobile devices into remote controls by installing the Qremote app to control HD Station. You can customize the actions of individual buttons of your QNAP remote control using QButton. From playing music, to viewing surveillance feeds in Surveillance Station, to shutting down or restarting the NAS, everyday and common tasks can be just a button press away with QButton.
Access 10GbE networks over Thunderbolt with Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet (T2E)
As Apple® computers do not natively support 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Mac® users previously needed to purchase a Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet adapter to connect to high-speed Ethernet networks. The innovative Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet (T2E) allows computers without Ethernet ports (such as MacBook Pro®) to access 10GbE network resources over a Thunderbolt™ connection to the TVS-1282T3. This saves users from having to buy adapters or converters and greatly streamlines the connectivity process.
Thunderbolt™ 3/NAS/iSCSI SAN triple solution
The TVS-1282T3 can simultaneously run general Ethernet services in addition to the Thunderbolt™ 3 network, completely independently and with no bandwidth interference. As an unmatched NAS that combines Thunderbolt™, NAS and iSCSI SAN into one box, the TVS-1282T3 prevents the restriction of DAS connecting to only one device, and breaks the cost barrier for creating 10GbE high-speed network environments.
Thunderbolt™ NAS mode
You can directly access files on the TVS-1282T3 on a file-based level. Simply attach your computer to the TVS-1282T3 with a Thunderbolt™ 3 cable, and you will find the TVS-1282T3 in Finder/File Explorer with accessible shared folders available for you. It is plug-and-use, and completely simple.
Ethernet NAS mode
