product description

Synology DS415play is a ready media server specifically designed for users who have a huge multimedia library and are eager to share them. With up to four drive bays, DS415play allows for flexible RAID configurations to achieve efficient data redundancy. DS415play comes with dual core CPU and 1GB RAM, delivering an average 112.45 MB/sec reading and 101.21 MB/sec writing speed under RAID 5 configuration in a Windows® environment.1 Powered by hardware accelerated transcoding engine, DS415play features 1080p Full HD video transcoding on the fly, effortlessly sharing videos with your smart TV, network media player, mobile devices and PC. DS415play comes with the external interfaces you need – up to three USB 2.0 ports to power multiple peripheral devices concurrently, and another two USB 3.0 ports for high speed external storage exchange. Designed with both safety and convenience in mind, DS415play contains hot-swappable tool-less hard drive trays to enable hassle-free hard drive installation and risk-free hard drive replacement.

With DS415play you can easily manage your multimedia contents and share them with smart TV, Android TV box, network media player, tablets and phones, Windows PC, Mac®, and Linux® computers. Photo Station’s intuitive design allows you to effortlessly organize photos into customized categories, smart albums and blog posts, and link them to social networking websites like Facebook, Twitter, Plurk, Picasa, Weibo and QQ within a few clicks. Audio Station comes with a built-in lyrics plugin, Internet radio, and support for DLNA, AirPlay®, and Bluetooth speakers for quality playback. With Video Station, movies and seasons of TV shows are automatically indexed with online metadata. You can also record your favorite programs with DTV tuners (currently supporting DVB-T, DVB-S and DTMB standards).

A certified DLNA DMS (Digital Media Server), DS415play serves also as a ready media server with the capability to host digital multimedia contents for remote playback. DLNA-compliant devices can access the shared contents in DS415play in the same local area network without the fuss over privilege settings. Not only does it make your multimedia bank available without any preconfiguration, Synology mobile apps transform your mobile device into the remote control of your DS415play, sending movies and photos to your TV or music to your speaker right from the palm of your hand.

Combined with a quick start widget, users can simultaneously tour the DSM operating system and set it up to use right away. For users unfamiliar with complicated router configurations or those who simply want to save time, the Synology EZ-Internet Wizard simplifies the process of setting up access to the Synology DS415play from the Internet. EZ-Internet Wizard walks you through all of network settings including firewall, port-forwarding, PPPoE setup and DDNS registration. The multi-tasking web UI on DSM allows users to run multiple applications simultaneously on one tab browser and switch between them instantly. Synology Hybrid RAID allows you to reach maximum use of your hard drive while keeping your storage safe with data redundancy.
