A NAS will work as it's local, are you doing this wired or wireless?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Wired
TV Technician: Kris8472,

Any NAS will work with an HDMI cable, connecting the TV to nas storage via ethernet will not be 4K though unless you get two supported devices.

Is a NAS with HDMI output an option, that would be, bar far, the easiest way./

How i can connect nas to my tv via hdmi?
I think I need that nas supports dlna because my tv uses dlna to play movies
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I need the cheapest way to play 4k video from storage. Can you provide me some example devices?
TV Technician: Kris8472,

That's correct. Does your TV support DNLA?

Hi,

I would agree you need to use a NAS device supporting DNLA, having a HDMI support NAS is a non starter.

What is the size of storage your looking for, and do you have any redundancy\resilience requirements such as RAID?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I think 4Tb
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I will use this storage for 4k films, and probably as a backup for my files, it's not permanent file storage, so I don't need raid
TV Technician: James I, Engineer replied 11 months ago

OK, I see your based in Ukraine, is this where you require the device to be delivered (just so I find one local to you, rather than one which will incur a load in postage.

I can get device from US, no problem, I just need not expensive solution, so what would you suggest?
TV Technician: James I, Engineer replied 11 months ago

From a budget end I would suggest something like the Buffalo 200 series NAS, it comes in a 4TB config and support up two 4 DLNA streaming devices and comes with apps for ios and android, in addition to backup apps for windows.

You can source it locally here or from the UK a lot cheaper here.

The manufacture model number is LS210D0401-EU

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
does it support streaming of 4k videos?
TV Technician: James I, Engineer replied 11 months ago

Yes, the current DLNA protocol will support it, your limitations will be your network not the NAS.

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
do I need transcoding on the fly feature to stream 4k?
TV Technician: James I, Engineer replied 11 months ago

This would all be handled at the client end (your TV), providing the data source is compatible the NAS doesn't really come into it other than 1 supporting DLNA and 2 having sufficient read speed to cope with the demand.
