QNAP NMP-1000 Brings Networked Video, Audio, Digital Pictures to the Living Room
QNAP’s ground-breaking NMP-1000 Network Multimedia Player is the definitive product that bridges the gap between the home network and the living room. Users are clamoring to centrally store and enjoy all their digital content in the living room and the NMP-1000 just fits the bill, said Meiji Chang, CEO of QNAP Systems, Inc.
The new NMP-1000 incorporates an internal hard disk drive that easily catalogs digital pictures, videos, music, and other content from computers on the home network and can effortlessly play them back in the home theater with the included remote control.
The new NMP-1000 connects to the home network via wired Ethernet (wireless adapter ready) and to an HDTV via HDMI or Component interfaces, or Composite & S-Video interfaces for standard-def TVs. The NMP-1000 is capable of playing back smooth Full HD 1080p video and crystal clear audio; turning digital picture slide shows, home videos, purchased content, and even shared iTunes libraries into a viewing/listening experience worthy of the living room. Because the NMP-1000 is Internet connected via the home network, you can even browse digital pictures & albums from Flickr or videos from YouTube. The “10-foot” user interface makes it a snap to select content for viewing with the included remote control, and the NMP-1000 supports a very wide range of formats for playing back digital pictures, videos, movies, and music. Because the NMP-1000 incorporates technologies found in its popular Turbo NAS servers, it can also be used to automatically backup computers on the network and also for easy file storage and sharing. The NMP-1000 is equally at home on Windows, Mac, Linux, and even UNIX-based home networks.
The NMP-1000 is fully DLNA compliant and features advanced technology including HDMI 1.3 support, powerful Sigma Designs video/audio hardware decoders, and a host of advanced networking support hidden under the hood. Set-up and the overall user experience of the NMP-1000 are exceptionally easy and enjoyable.
The NMP-1000 is worldwidely available now.
