QNAP Rolls out Quad-core 4-bay TS-453BT3 Thunderbolt 3 NAS Tailored for Creative Professionals

QNAP Systems Inc. has unveiled the TS-453BT3, a 4-bay NAS that combines high-speed Thunderbolt 3 connectivity with a pre-installed QM2 PCIe card, providing dual M.2 SATA SSD slots and 10GbE connectivity. 

“In the 4K era, media professionals often face the challenges of slow connections and insufficient storage capacity. The QNAP TS-453BT3 tackles these problems with Thunderbolt 3 and 10GbE connectivity, M.2 SSD caching, and expandable storage, helping users to streamline production workflows while providing sufficient storage space for creative works,” said Jason Hsu, Product Manager of QNAP.

The TS-453BT3 is powered by an Intel Celeron J3455 quad-core 1.5GHz processor (burst up to 2.3 GHz) with dual-channel 8GB DDR3L RAM. The pre-installed QM2 card provides SSD caching and 10GbE connectivity, helping to provide up to 683 MB/s read speeds. The TS-453BT3 also includes a free RM-IR004 remote control that can be coupled with the QButton app to provide one-touch functionality for everyday operations.

Featuring two Thunderbolt 3 ports that deliver up to 514 MB/s read speeds, the TS-453BT3 provides an ideal collaborative 4K media editing platform for both Mac and Windows users, allowing easy sharing of large media files to improve productivity.

The TS-453BT3 also provides a unique Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet converter, allowing computers without Ethernet ports to access 10GbE network resources over a Thunderbolt connection. The TS-453BT3 supports block-based snapshots, allowing users to easily backup and restore the NAS to a previous state in the event of an unexpected NAS failure or when struck by a ransomware attack.

Running on the latest QTS 4.3 operating system, the TS-453BT3 series provides a wide range of applications from the built in app centre: ‘Qsirch’ provides full-text search for quickly finding files; ‘IFTTT Agent’ and ‘Qfiling’ help automate user workflows for improved efficiency and productivity; ‘Qsync’ and ‘Hybrid Backup Sync’ simplifies file sharing and syncing across devices; ‘Qmail agent’ and ‘Qcontactz’ allow easier management of multiple email accounts and contact information.

The TS-453BT3 series is now available. For more information, and to view the full QNAP NAS lineup, please go to www.qnap.com

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
