Every application requires different performance. For example, Surveillance Station requires higher-priority access to storage to ensure the integrity of recordings, while normal transmission speeds are sufficient for file sharing. However, when multiple applications are running on the same storage media, the required throughput level cannot be guaranteed as the storage media is busy handling I/O requests from all of them. The TVS-1282 supports three different types of storage media: M.2, SSD and SATA hard drives, and they can be configured as independent partitions for different applications, ensuring a sufficient throughput level for every application.
Network Traffic Distribution
With four 1 Gigabit Ethernet ports, the TVS-1282 allows applications to use dedicated interfaces to meet network traffic distribution requirements. Network interfaces can also be easily managed with the Network & Virtual Switch app, which enables optimized network resources for TVS-1282, virtual machines and containerized apps. No matter if they are business organizations or individual users, they can effortlessly manage network connections by using the Network & Virtual Switch.
450W power supply fuels GPU passthrough
Graphics cards are optimized for graphical calculations and transformations, but require significantly more power compared to other hardware. The TVS-1282 offers an option with a 450 watt power supply that is capable of powering an AMD Radeon™ R9 Series graphics card for smooth GPU passthough to virtual machines.
Note: Only TVS-882 and TVS-1282 provides an option with 450W power supply.
HDMI 2.0 for playing 4K 60 fps videos
The TVS-1282 features three HDMI ports, including one HDMI 2.0 port for smoothly playing Ultra HD 4K (4096 x 2304) videos. You can connect the TVS-1282 to a TV or A/V receiver and use the powerful Kodi™ media player in HD Station with the QNAP remote control to enjoy rich media content and 4K 60 fps videos with the best audiovisual experience. Featuring Intel® HD Graphics, the TVS-1282 delivers superior real-time 4K (H.264) and 1080p video transcoding to convert videos to universal formats that can be smoothly played on PCs, mobile devices and Smart TVs.

Seamless capacity expansion via SAS or USB interface
The TVS-1282 supports online capacity expansion by connecting multiple high-performance SAS-enabled QNAP RAID expansion enclosures or economical USB 3.0 expansion units to meet the needs of growing business data. The total storage capacity of the TVS-1282 can be gradually expanded and easily managed by the QTS Storage Manager, being useful for large data applications such as video surveillance, data archiving, and TV broadcast storage, and more.
The maximum raw storage capacity available by connecting QNAP expansion enclosures:
|QNAP NAS Model||RAID Expansion Enclosure||No. of RAID Expansion Enclosure||Total HDD No. (NAS + Enclosure)||Max. Raw Capacity (TB)*|
*The maximum capacity is calculated by using 8TB HDDs.
**To support UX-500P and UX-800P, QTS 4.2.0 (or later) firmware is required. Please create a separate static volume or storage pool on the UX expansion unit to expand the NAS storage space.
Use NAS to expand NAS capacity with Virtual JBOD
Besides using physical storage expansion enclosures, there is an additional option to expand NAS storage capacity. QNAP VJBOD (Virtual JBOD) is network-based JBOD, allowing you to expand storage of your QNAP NAS with multiple QNAP NAS units. You can mount iSCSI LUNs from a QNAP NAS to the TVS-1282 as local disks, and create virtual storage pools and volumes for operating NAS functionalities, such as creating and reverting snapshots, indexing multimedia files into the media library, and even further creating iSCSI LUNs. With VJBOD, you can centrally utilize the storage space from multiple QNAP NAS units* and manage it with the interface on the local NAS. VJBOD supports 10GbE/40GbE Ethernet connection interface and port trunking (link aggregation with multiple LAN ports) that increase the performance and reliability of your VJBOD storage.
*The remote QNAP NAS must support iSCSI and Storage Pools and use QTS 4.2.1 (or newer). Up to 8 remote NAS units can be mounted.
