Austin, TX– April 30, 2007
- Buffalo Technology, a global leader in the design, development and manufacturing of wired and wireless networking, storage and memory solutions today announced its new Web Access feature for its LinkStation Live NAS devices. Web Access allows consumers and SOHO users to instantly and securely share and access digital content, such as photos, videos, music and other data stored on a LinkStation Live from anywhere in the world.
The new Web Access feature is available via a simple web browser interface. Because no software or drivers are required to share or access content, set-up is a snap. Simply log onto www.buffaloNAS.com
from any computer, enter your LinkStation name and immediately connect to your digital content. The new feature is available for existing LinkStation Live customers via a simple firmware upgrade.
“Our customers demand an effortless solution for accessing and sharing computer content while on-the-go,” said Morikazu Sano, senior vice president of global sales and marketing at Buffalo. “Buffalo has always been committed to simplifying and enhancing the user experience, and the new Web Access feature for the LinkStation Live couldn’t make it any easier to access content from anywhere in the world.”
Web Access also includes MP3 support, which allows users to remotely stream music stored on their LinkStation Live, no matter where they are in the world. It supports UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) and access is highly secure with optional SSL encryption. Users can also restrict public access so only designated people can open certain files.
The LinkStation Live is available in capacities of 250GB (HS-DH250GL), 320GB (HS-DH320GL), 500GB (HS-DH500GL
) and 750GB (HS-DH750GL). It allows users to instantly store, access, backup and share multimedia and other files from any computer on their home. The device can be used as an iTunes™ server, which allows iTunes 7 software to access music stored on the device. It also includes the ability to download and store photos and videos directly from a digital camera. It offers ultra fast transfer rates of up to 35MB/s.
For even better performance, the LinkStation Live also includes a 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet Port and Gigabit Jumbo Frame Support. It is Windows™ and Macintosh™ compatible and includes two USB 2.0 ports for expanded networked storage or as backup targets such as a USB hard drive.
