2-bay NAS for 4K movies

2-bay NAS for 4K movies

The 4K files are very tech demanding video format. Your setup will need to be ready to transfer these very heavy files. There are two options for you to stream 4K- over HDMI or network. But when you stream over the network, make sure you have everything wired using cables. If you prefer using WiFi, then you need a new generation 5GHz router. Or you can choose a NAS with transcoding engine built in. This will allow you to stream 4K movies over a slower network. The streamed file will be converted into a smaller version depending on network speed or destination device.

Streaming over HDMI will not require a network connection, and require NAS to be located close to the TV.
