Sling Media Unveils Four New OEM Products at CES
Sling Media, a wholly owned subsidiary of EchoStar, will release four new OEM video placeshifting products at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas – The Slingbox 700U, Sling Receiver 300, Sling Monitor 150, and Sling Touch Control 100. These products allow consumers to watch video around their home or around the world.
“For the past 12 months, we have been fine tuning an all new product line up,” says John M. Paul, executive vice president of products at Sling Media. “We believe manufacturers and TV service providers realize that building Sling Media products and services into their offerings is the best way to acquire new customers and delight their current ones. We are open for OEM business and excited to work with any television service provider or CE manufacturer to integrate our products and technology to bring placeshifting to the mainstream.”
The Slingbox 700U is the fastest way of adding Slingbox capabilities to an existing Internet-connected set-top-box with a USB port. Any HD set-top box can be quickly SlingLoaded, giving viewers the ability to watch HDTV on the web-based SlingPlayer anywhere in the world on a PC, Macintosh, or smart mobile device.
The Sling Receiver 300 can deliver an HD DVR’s full HD video stream to any other television in the home using a home network, eliminating the need for cables or multiple HD DVRs.
The Sling Monitor 150 is a light-weight, portable flat screen display that wirelessly takes a viewer’s primary HD DVR video experience to any location in the home.
The Sling Touch Control 100 is a next-generation, touch-screen remote control that interacts with and controls SlingGuide-enabled DVRs as well as most line-of-sight controlled audio-visual devices.
Sling Media will be demonstrating these new products in Booth 9021 at the CES 2010 in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
