New additions to the ReadyNAS Ultra family deliver stunning home media streaming experiences
SAN JOSE, Calif. — NETGEAR®, Inc. (NASDAQGM: NTGR), a global networking company that delivers innovative products to consumers, businesses and Internet service providers, today released four new additions to its ReadyNAS® Ultra family of home media servers. The new ReadyNAS Ultra Plus series delivers approximately 30% more performance over the ReadyNAS Ultra series, offering the world’s best streaming media experience for music, movies, photos and files. In addition, the 2-bay model of the ReadyNAS Ultra family will soon be available worldwide.
The ReadyNAS Ultra Plus series transforms home media networks, delivering media content to local or remote handhelds, desktops and game consoles. NETGEAR’s industry-leading partnerships deliver ex-panded media experiences at home and away from home. TiVo® users may use the ReadyNAS Ultra Plus to tremendously expand their DVR capacity. Orb™ transcoding support puts the right media formats on the right screens, streaming movies on handhelds in any connected location. Skifta™ shifts movies and music onto any DLNA networked screen. Remote file access is now available for iPhone users with the new ReadyNAS Remote iPhone App.
“The explosion of digital content has resulted in large personal media collections that are often unma-naged and scattered. As media collections grow, so has the demand for home media servers. Consumers want simplicity and flexibility,” said Norm Bogen, industry analyst at In-Stat. “And the NETGEAR ReadyNAS Ultra family delivers. With a ReadyNAS Ultra or Ultra Plus at the center of the home network, consumers can consolidate and organize their content in a secure, expandable place that’s accessible anywhere.”
“The ReadyNAS Ultra family brings cutting-edge partnerships and applications to the home media server market. The new Ultra Plus series is now the most powerful home storage available,” said Tiffany Pham, Product Line Manager for Prosumer Storage at NETGEAR. “Now users can do more with their digital media collections than ever before.”
