Transcodes 4K H.264 videos on-the-fly or offline
Four available combinations with Mac/PC and JBOD for flexible attaching, sharing and expansion
Flexible storage expansion with QNAP storage expansion enclosures and Virtual JBOD (VJBOD)
Supports QRM+ unified remote server management, Q’center for centrally managing multiple QNAP NAS, virtual machine and container applications, and storage for virtualization
1.Requires MacOS Sierra 10.12.3 (or later) for using Thunderbolt connection on Mac.
2.Thunderbolt 3 reaches the maximum theoretical transfer rate of 40 Gigabits per second. Actual performance may vary due to hardware/software limitations and usage environment. Directly connecting a QNAP Thunderbolt 3 NAS to a computer establishes a peer-to-peer (P2P) network and enables 20GbE connectivity.
3.Thunderbolt 3 (40 Gbps) doubles its theoretical potential for speed when compared to Thunderbolt 2 (20 Gbps). This results in the TVS-1282T3’s file transfer speed increasing from 900 MB/s to 1,600 MB/s.
