Posted by at 9:17 am on November 5, 2010

NETGEAR 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 last  ReadyNAS Ultra series. In addition, the 2-bay model of the ReadyNAS Ultra family will soon be available worldwide.

The ReadyNAS Ultra Plus series deliver media content to local or remote handhelds, desktops and game consoles. NETGEAR’s industry-leading partnerships deliver expanded 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 ReadyNAS Remote iPhone app is available on Apple’s App Store for $2.99 USD)

“The explosion of digital content has resulted in large personal media collections that are often unmanaged 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.”
