Taipei, Taiwan, June 19, 2014 – QNAP® Systems, Inc. today announced the release of the IS-400 Pro Turbo NAS – a robust all-in-one industrial, 2.5” SSD/hard drive compatible four-bay NAS designed for reliable operation.

The IS-400 Pro is also compliant with the military-grade MIL-STD-810G-514.6E-1 simulation test for anti-vibration, and is able to withstand impact while still providing continuous operation.

In addition to delivering the durability and processing power needed to thrive in a wide variety of non-office environments, the Surveillance Station provides a comprehensive surveillance solution for 24/7 security.

Users can easily build a surveillance center with the IS-400 Pro by using the Surveillance Station for real-time monitoring, video and audio recording and playback. The IS-400 Pro provides high compatibility with over 2,600 IP cameras of famous brands and also AXIS® Camera Companion, the video management software (VMS) for AXIS network cameras, to offer a reliable and powerful network surveillance system.
