Sony NSR-500 digital video recorder

NSR-500
Network Surveillance Recording Server
The NSR-500 is Sony’s 16-channel Full-HD network surveillance
recording server delivering a very good cost-performance ratio.
Depending on system requirements, you can choose the very best
machine for your particular applications.
Expandability and Flexibility
As shown below, you can choose from two NSR-500 models, and increase the number of hard disk drive (HDD)
units to achieve your required storage capacity. RAID levels can also be selected according to your precise
requirements for reliability. To expand your choice of future upgrades, the optional NSBK-EB05 Analog Encoder
Board and NSBK-DH05 Display Accelerator Board are also available separately. Furthermore, with the optional
additional Camera License, you can also add extra cameras.

RAID Technology to
Prevent Disk-failure Data Loss
The hard disk storage units of the NSR-500 are configured
with high redundancy.
This drastically reduces the time required for system
installation. Images from cameras are assigned automatically
to a monitor layout menu, so that you can start monitoring
instantly.
They feature RAID implementations and hot-swappable

capabilities to protect important data against hard disk
The NSR-500 can be used with Sony’s existing recording
failure, 24 hours a day. You can choose from RAID 0, RAID 1,
systems such as the NSR-1000 Series, and RealShot Manager

Ideal Replacement for
Existing Digital Video Recorders
With the optional NSBK-EB05 Analog Encoder Board, the
NSR-500 can replace digital video recorders (DVRs) in a
CCTV surveillance system, which can be used with existing
analog cameras.
The NSR-500 is a relatively small investment, equivalent to a
