*Supported video formats depend on the hardware and software specifications of the devices. Playback capability and quality may vary due to factors including the original file formats/quality, hardware and software limitations, and output devices.

7th Generation Intel® processors, extraordinary performance
The TVS-1282 is powered by high-performance 7th Generation Intel® multi-core processors with options including Core™ i3, Core™ i5, and Core™ i7, increasing system performance by 20% - 30% compared with previous generations. It greatly enhances the efficiency of CPU-demanding applications such as virtualization, real-time 4K @30Hz video playback, and serving large numbers of simultaneous connections.

Advanced hardware for greater efficiency
High-performance hardware, well-designed application functionalities and thoroughly-planned usage scenarios are three distinctive cornerstones for achieving optimum performance.

4 x 2.5” SSD slots
Offers flexible configuration in tiered storage and enables cache acceleration.

Tool-less HDD tray and installation
2.5” SSD trays and 3.5” hard drive trays feature tool-less design for easy installation and replacement.

2 x built-in M.2 SSD slots
Supports SATA M.2 SSDs with 2242, 2260, 2280, and 22110 form factors; allows the greatest flexibility in tiered storage configuration and enables cache acceleration.

Note: M.2 SSD operations can easily generate excessive heat. It is recommended to install a heatsink (from QNAP or a third-party provider) on the M.2 SSD.

DDR4 2133 MHz memory
Supports four DDR4 memory modules for a maximum of 64GB RAM.

7th Generation Intel® Core™ Processor
Features the latest 14nm manufacturing technology with faster buses to support DDR4, PCIe Gen.3, and DMI 3.0 for incredible performance and extremely efficient data transmission.

3 x PCIe Gen.3 expansion slots
PCIe Gen.3 provides 1GB/s bandwidth per lane; support for 10GbE/ 40GbE adapters, PCIe NVMe SSD, external graphics cards (AMD Radeon™ R7 or RX 480), and USB 3.1 expansion cards.

4 x Gigabit Ethernet ports
Allows optimized network traffic distribution for diverse applications. The Network & Virtual Switch app makes network management much easier.

3 x HDMI outputs
Three HDMI ports support duplicated and extended desktop options.

Compartmentalized smart cooling
Separately detects the CPU and hard drive temperatures to dynamically control fan speed and performs quieter fan operations.

3.5mm audio jack
Connect speakers or headphones for direct audio output from the NAS.

2 x built-in speakers
Supports direct audio output and provides verbal system warnings.

M.2 SATA 6Gb/s SSD & 2.5” SSD cache
The TVS-1282 provides 4 SSD slots dedicated for caching to increase IOPS performance, and provides higher transfer speeds and reliability with the compact, energy-efficient M.2 SSD. Using an SSD cache boosts overall system performance, and is perfect for improving overall workflow of random IOPS demanding applications such as virtualization. The TVS-1282 combines M.2 SSD, 2.5” SSD and HDD in one box to effectively realize tiered storage for exceptional application performance and lower TCO of storage at the same time.

Perfect storage trio: tiered storage, application-based partitioning & network traffic distribution
The advanced hardware design of TVS-1282 can facilitate optimized storage deployment based on different usage scenarios.

Tiered Storage
QNAP’s Qtier Technology empowers the TVS-1282 with Auto Tiering that helps continuously optimize storage efficiency across PCIe NVMe SSD, M.2 SSD, SSD and SATA drives. With Auto Tiering, the TVS-1282 can automatically move frequently-used "hot" data to high-performance storage tiers and less-accessed "cold" data to lower-cost, higher-capacity drives, making the TVS-1282 an extremely efficient shared resource. Businesses will no longer have to invest heavily in expensive Flash technology, but can still enjoy exceptional application performance and cost efficiency from Auto Tiering with the TVS-1282.
