QNAP has released the new Turbo NAS QTS 4.1.2 operating system that is introducing NAS Installation over HDMI. A direct setup from the NAS itself via keyboard, mouse and monitor might be easier for a lot of people than a network based one, or at least it will seem that way to them. In return, it will open up the world of Network Attached Storage to a complete new group of people.
It also adds several new features including VPN Server support, VPN Client support, block-based LUN backup, subtitle (*.SRT) support for Video Station and File Station, embedding subtitles into transcoded videos, Chromecast streaming, and more. The QAirplay & Chromecast app available from the App Center can also stream media content directly to a TV via AirPlay-enabled or Chromecast devices now.
“We have made many enhancements to the business and home features in QTS 4.1.2 to provide a better user experience and to make the Turbo NAS a great companion in the workplace and for home entertainment,” said Willy Kuo, product manager of QNAP.
Along with the new features, QNAP also fixed a long row of issues ranging from file size issues over VPN trouble to synchronize issues. You can check out the changelog for a full list of updates and fixes.
