Sony DVR and media storage nasnePosted 12:23 pm on Wednesday, April 18th, 2012 by Jose Gutierrez III
Sony is going to release a DVR and media storage called nasne. I would like to say it’s a play-on words with NAS (Network Attached Storage) and the Japanese word ne, but I could be wrong. This piece of equipment is more than just a NAS. It functions as a DVR as well, which allows you to record shows on TV like any other DVR. Another cool function it has is the ability to stream to your PS3, Vita, Vaio, Tablet and Xperia line items. This is similar to Torne, which was release in 2010 but has more to offer. Torne was never released in America, unless it was imported and you know Japanese.
Though this may look like a mini-PS3, it does have a bit more hard drive space than ones bought at the store, this one has 500GB of space. One of the biggest function is the ability to simultaneously watch live TV or recorded content on up to two devices on the same network. This item can also store and stream personal pictures, videos, and music; which can be accessed by any DLNA enable devices. If the 500GB of space is not enough, you can attach an external hard drive to the back of nasne, for even more space. No word yet on the size limit of the external hard drive.
This item is due out in Japan on July 19, 2012. No word yet on US release, so this may be another item only available for the Japanese market and never set foot in America. But we can hope that they do release it here. Keep your fingers crossed.
