Western Digital and Plex have announced that the new WD My Passport Wireless Pro external hard drive is the world’s first portable Plex Media Server, Engadget reported.
Plex is streaming software that catalogues your media with metadata it gets from online services.
It is able to transcode and play videos and music to a variety of platforms, including browsers, mobile devices, media boxes, TVs, and video game consoles.
The My Passport Wireless Pro can charge mobile devices, back up data via SD or USB 3.0, and is powered by a battery which Western Digital said can run for up to 10 hours.
A 2TB version of the drive costs $230, while the 3TB model is priced at $250.
