The TS-251D integrates secure data storage and multimedia entertainment on a single device. Thanks to its PCIe slot, the TS-251D allows you to expand NAS functionality and run additional applications. You can improve overall system performance by installing a QNAP QM2 card for M.2 SSD caching / 10GbE connectivity in combination with Qtier automated layered storage and installing a 10GbE / 5GbE / 2.5GbE network expansion card. In addition, TS-251D can be used with the intelligent AI photo management application from QNAP, QuMagie, which integrates AI image recognition for grouping similar photos into albums “People”, “Objects” and “Places”. The TS-251D is equipped with an HDMI connection for streaming multimedia in your home. The TS-251D supports dual-channel hardware decoding and transcoding that allows you to view NAS media files on different devices with ease.
