A follow up question on this:
If I put all photos, music and videos on my NAS I can then add the NAS location to all my installations on my computers that are running iTunes?
Also, nothing will be copied to each local computer but all information stays on the NAS?

Without this I'm unsure about how it works but in theory you should be able to just change the location of your iTunes library to the NAS. The issue without the iTunes server feature would be on how it is handled with more than one iTunes client accessing it.
You might want to consider plug computers like TonidoPlug. They have an iPad app as well to access files, music and ipad supported video formats.
It also supports AirPlay. worth checking out. But it doesn't have RAID capability though.
Qnap have a App called Qmobile which works on iPhone / iPod Touch and iPad and allows you to connect to your Qnap NAS and access media (photos, music and video) either locally via your home wifi or via the Internet remotely if you want.
The interface is a little clunky but it works and works fairly well in my experience.
I did a lot of searching on the web and my choice is the Synology DS1511. It came great out of the reviews, has 5 bays and has a great performance. I will get it next month.

I picked up a WD My Book Live to go with a previously owned WDTV live. This turned out to be a good choice for me. I was successfully able to configure remote access with filebrowser app. It works great within the network as well as over the internet
Now i can access my NAS from anywhere, virtually increasing my ipad storage to 2TB
