Digital Media Streaming in the Home

 

The SmartStor NS4300N functions as a Digital Media Streaming Server by utilizing DLNA's UPnP Protocol via Home and Local Area Networks. As a UPnP Certified Device, UPnP Media Control Points can discover and stream Music, Pictures and Video (JPEG, MP3, MPEG2, WMV and more) directly from the SmartStor NS4300N using applications such as PowerDVD, Nero Showtime, Wireless HD Media Players and Sony's PlayStation 3. When using Wireless HD Media Players or the PlayStation 3, No "PC" is needed for streaming services enabling you to view your Pictures and Videos in the comfort of your living room. In the near future HDTV LCD/Plasma Displays and Kitchen Appliances will be UPnP capable allowing access to your Personal Digital Entertainment anywhere in the Home.
