NVIDIA Shield TV boxes can act as Plex Servers

Plex, the media serving software that can beam music, movies and more to any screen you have, is setting up shop with NVIDIA and its Shield TV product.

Thanks to the Shield TV’s Tegra X1 processor, though, it’s capable of far more than what the Android TV app it’s running can do. For example, multiple-stream, hardware-accelerated transcoding will definitely help smooth out the picture and give it the muscle it needs to put out 4K footage at 60 frames per second. And with the Shield’s 500GB of storage plus USB ports for more, it can actually be the Plex Server you want it to be.

Expect a firmware update for your Shield box later this month.
