I have a NAS unit on order that is 12TB with dual gig NICs. This will be used to store a number of large video files which I hope to be able to stream over the LAN. I would like to ensure this is capable of streaming to up to 40, maybe 50 users a time. Is iSCSI something I should be using with this?

Nope, iSCSI is like a direct attached disk so can't be shared normally between more than one client without data corruption.
