Plex's Internal Testing Confirms the QNAP TVS-x73 Series NAS Transcodes Video at the Equivalent Performance of two Simultaneous 1080p High Quality Transcodes
POMONA, Calif, Aug. 15, 2017- QNAP, Inc. has always been known as a top-performer in the Network Attached Storage (NAS) category, and some new performance data from Plex shows the remarkable video transcoding capability of QNAP's mid-range TVS-x73 series NAS. In Plex's testing, Plex Media Server on the TVS-473 NAS delivered an average transcoding speed greater than 2.3x realtime when playing high-bitrate remuxed Blu-ray Disc content. This, combined with a CPU Passmark score of 4,800 in benchmark testing, equates to two simultaneous 1080p transcodes. The TVS-x473 series NAS is an affordable yet equally powered alternative to the popular TVS-x71 series which enjoys a strong reputation as a video transcoding powerhouse.
"When testing the performance of the Plex Media Server on the QNAP TVS-473, we saw an impressive performance for both high and low bitrate media," said Shawn Eldridge, Vice President of Strategic Alliances at Plex. "With this high powered NAS, our users will be able to enjoy two simultaneous, high quality, 1080p video transcodes."
