Tascam HS-20 Solid-State Recorder

Tascam HS-20 Solid-State Recorder Details

The HS-20 is based on Tascamâ??s robust range of broadcast recorders, but built for the needs of contractors. The stereo recorder captures audio to SD or CompactFlash media and makes recordings available on a network for instant remote access. The unitâ??s network functionality is designed for automated recording and delivery without supervision.

The HS-20 can function as a file server so that recordings can be manually downloaded over a network. There is also client software to automatically upload files to a server on the userâ??s schedule, with the option to delete the files when finished. Automated recording and playback are available, while the internal clock is synchronized to any internet time server.

The HS-20 is equipped with solid transport buttons, a weighted jog/shuttle wheel, and a colour TFT touchscreen display. The rear panel includes balanced and unbalanced analogue connectors as well as SPDIF and AES/EBU digital inputs and outputs. RS-232C and parallel control interfaces are also provided. The unit records audio material to broadcast wave format files with resolutions up to 192 kHz at 24 bit.

Ideal for installations managed over a network, the HS-20 can automate and deliver your recordings to any server.
