Tascam HS-20

The HS-20 is a solid-state audio recorder & player. Recording & playback can be controlled, accessed, & scheduled from an internet connection, allowing remote access from anywhere

Recording and playback can be scheduled for automatic operation. A built-in FTP client and server are included in the HS-20, for either automated or manual file transfer and management. Record meetings, classes, or worship services on a regular schedule, then automatically upload the recording to a server and delete the recording, all without supervision. Or upload a new playlist for in-store music playback, including promotional announcements, all from a central location.

The HS-20 records to either SD Card or Compact Flash media, at up to 192kHz/24-bit Broadcast WAV formats. Balanced and unbalanced connections are available on the rear panel, as well as RS-232C Serial and Parallel connections for wired remote control. It's built on TASCAM's more reliable recording platform, designed for broadcast use.

For automated recording or playback with network accessibility and control, TASCAM's HS-20 is the only choice.
