Product discontinued. Alternative product: Sony NSR-500 network video recorder.

Overview of Sony NSR-S20

The Sony NSR-S20 is a compact network video recorder specifically designed for a single-server, multi-client system. The recorder is capable of recording and displaying full HD video from up to eight Sony security cameras at one time, making it well suited to small/medium business applications such as facial identification or monitoring busy environments.

The NSR-S20 features Plug and Play technology that starts recording using default camera settings as soon as the recorder detects cameras on the local network, bypassing complicated installation processes such as establishing IP addresses and setting up camera parameters. This makes it ideal for users looking for an easy-to-setup recording solution.

The unit also includes an infrared remote control for ease of use and is compatible with a wide variety of Sony network cameras (see Technical specification for more information).

Please note: the NSR-S20 is available in two versions: one without a built-in HDD (external storage required) and one with a built-in 2 TB HDD (NSR-S20/2T). Please select your storage option from above.
