QNAPÂ® Systems, Inc. today announced the free Qmedia app available for RokuÂ® players and Roku TV models, allowing users to easily stream photos, music and videos from their QNAP NAS devices to home TV through QNAPâ€™s DLNA Server function. Coupled with the support for video transcoding and hardware acceleration, users can enjoy a better, smooth viewing experience of their rich multimedia collections.
â€śWe are glad for Qmedia to be one of the streaming channels in Roku Channel Store,â€ť said Dylan Lin, product manager of QNAP. â€śThe Qmedia channel provides our users an additional option to browse their media collections on TV, no matter if it is DLNA compliant or not.â€ť
QNAP NAS supports DLNA Media Server to perform as a powerful streaming machine, and the Qmedia on Roku platform streams media content from QNAP NAS via DLNA protocol, allowing users to enjoy their media collections on TV through HDMI-out. Integrating the Media Library from QTS, the Qmedia leverages the same user interface to provide users with consistent browsing experience.
Consumers who use QNAP NAS with support of real-time transcoding can easily enjoy media content without constrains. Coupled with hardware acceleration feature, users can enjoy a significantly improved transcoding performance for a faster and smoother viewing experience.
The free Qmedia app is available in the Roku Channel Store. To activate Qmedia on a Roku device, QNAP NAS requires QTS 4.2 or newer version.
