Stream music, movies, and more from one centralized network location in your home.
Specifically, the Ultra 4 Plus enables you to take music, videos, and other media with you anytime, anywhere, and on any screen. The Ultra 4 Plus is DLNA-certified, which means that you can use it as a media server to stream your music, photos, and videos to any networked device within your home, including your TiVo box. You can also record your favorite shows using your TiVo DVR, back them up with your Ultra 4 Plus, and watch them whenever you want.
Back Up Your Important Files with Ease
With the Ultra 4 Plus, you can back up all of your multimedia files in one central location without worrying about manual backups, cumbersome USB drives, or other direct-attached storage options. Simply schedule your continuous or reoccurring backup jobs, and the Ultra 4 Plus will ensure that all of your digital content is saved instantly and securely. Fast and easy to install, the ReadyNAS Ultra 4 Plus can even back up non-protected shows from your TiVo box.
Stream Content to Your Mobile Device
Your Ultra 4 Plus lets you shift your media and stream it to any remote DLNA-rendering device using Skifta technology. Simply download the Skifta client, create your place, shift your media, and press play.
Additionally, using the free streaming software, Orb, home users can stream their media content inside and outside the home over a Wi-Fi or 3G/4G connection. Orb allows the Ultra 4 Plus to transcode multimedia files on the fly and stream them to a mobile device. All you need is the Ultra 4 Plus, an Internet or 3G/4G connection, and a handheld device with the Orb Live app* installed.
Multiple Layers of Data Protection
The Ultra 4 Plus offers multiple layers of protection for your multimedia data. ReadyNAS Vault–a unique, cloud-based backup service–allows you to customize your own disaster recovery plan. In the event of a disk failure, hardware or software virus, theft, fire, a flood, or another disaster, the service will restore your most critical files with a simple click. This product ships with 2 GB of ReadyNAS Vault services included for two years.
Access the ReadyNAS Ultra 4 Plus Remotely
Using the ReadyNAS Remote** feature, you can drag and drop files on your Ultra 4 Plus remotely without complicated network setups. In addition, the Ultra 4 Plus comes with an Rsync service that allows you to replicate and synchronize files between two ReadyNAS devices.
The Ultra 4 Plus is a diskless device, so you can install your own drives and add whatever capacity you need. It features bay space for four drives, and it can accommodate most 3.5-inch SATA drives. A pair of gigabyte Ethernet ports delivers exceptionally fast connections, while three USB ports offer the flexibility to connect other devices with a USB connection, such as printers, external USB storage devices, or digital cameras.
The ReadyNAS Ultra 4 Plus Home Media Server is backed by a three-year NETGEAR hardware warranty.
