Qnap, a leading manufacturer of network area storage (NAS) products, has introduced its new the TS-x69 Pro and TS-x69L families of mid-level NAS products powered by the new dual-core Intel Atom processor that also support XBMC technology and therefore can be used as large-capacity multimedia servers.

The Qnap TS-x69 Pro and TS-x69L families are compatible with Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac and support virtualization technologies.

The XBMC media center feature allows users to directly connect the NAS through their TV’s HDMI port for direct media playback.

With XBMC, users can also manage their video library, create/manage their own personal music playlists and create their own photo slideshows. The XBMC media center feature can be downloaded for free from the company’s web-site.

“We are very thrilled to bring the exciting, feature loaded XBMC Media Center to QNAP users. XBMC has a very strong, loyal following and their user community is ever growing. The addition of this revolutionary application turns your NAS device into a home multimedia component,” said Ivan Hsu, marketing sales director for Qnap.
