With its quad-core ARM processor, the Drobo 5N is capable of much more than just storing files, and you can now grab a Plex app to help it live up to that potential. Once installed, it’ll turn the NAS into a full blown media server to distribute up to 16TB of protected media to any of your Plex– or DLNA-supported SmartTVs, handhelddevices, Mac or PC computers, set top boxes and gaming consoles. Plex said that the Drobo, while not capable of performing real-time video transcoding, will be able to demux multiple video and audio streams and transcode multi-channel audio to stereo AAC in real-time. If you already shelled out $600 for one of the speedy boxes — on top of the drives to populate it — the free cost of the app is probably a relief. You can grab it from your Drobo Dashboard.
