NETGEAR showcased what judges rated as one of the most innovative inventions of the year, the N900 media storage router, at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
The new, integrated device took home an Innovations Design and Engineering Award at the show, and is scheduled to ship to consumers some time this summer.
The WNDR4500 combines storage and back-up capabilities with streaming and wireless networking all in one package, creating an integrated solution for families and small or businesses.
The Media Storage Router also offers the ability to run downloadable applications from the NETGEAR Smart Network App Store.
The Media Storage Router includes a 2TB, upgradeable hard drive and two high-speed USB 3.0 ports to add additional external storage or creating networked drives. The system includes automatic, continuous backups via the READYSHARE Vault.
Other features include the READYSHARE Cloud, which permits users to access files stored on the home server from their smartphone, laptop, or tablet, and DLNA-certified media sharing capabilities, to permit the router/drive to stream files to any other DLNA-certified devices in the home. This permits the router to act as a digital media hub and server.
The Home of the Future Will Need Reliable Data Recovery
A NETGEAR Media Storage Router can truly turn your home into the home of the future, with all your family's media stored on one device that is easy to access via any Internet-enabled device.
But the more hands you have in the media pie, the greater the chance of accidental file deletion, corruption of operation-critical files, or other causes of catastrophic data loss.
Don't put all your family's media -- from photos to favorite movies and even decades worth of music -- at risk. Know what to do in a data recovery emergency. Do not attempt do-it-yourself data recovery; call the specialists at 24 Hour Data.
