The Nasne is a quite a device, featuring a 500GB hard drive and is setup with several different tuner cards capable of capturing over-the-air broadcasts, cable, and satellite video. That’s not where the device stops, though. The Nasne integrates will just about all of Sony’s internet-connected devices, including the Playstation 3, Playstation Vita, Sony Tablets, the Xperia phones, and “VAIO TVs with nasne.”

By connecting “nasne” to their home network, users will be able to watch and record digital terrestrial and satellite broadcast through dedicated applications such as “torne” for PlayStation®3 (PS3®) and “VAIO TV with nasne” for VAIO.
