Synology has just released a new slate of DiskStations: the DS416, DS216play, and DS216se, each of which satisfies a particular use case and application. The 4-bay DS416 is a feature-rich and high-performance device optimized for businesses and homes, while the 2-bay DS216play is a multimedia-optimized, high-value NAS server ready for 4K UHD transcoding. The DS216se is a more budget-friendly NAS, which allows users to create their own personal cloud.

If have you tons of Blu-ray or DVD movie collection, it would be a good option to copy/backup them to those network attached storage so that you can instantly access them on your Apple TV, WD TV, Smart TV or other multimedia devices as you like. However, unlike other digital file formats, you can not directly copy Blu-ray or DVD disc and store them on Synology NAS.

For users who own Synology DS215j or DS414, backup your expensive Blu-ray/DVD on them is also as easy as blowing off the dust.
