Sling Media announces SlingPlayer 2.0 with Clip+Sling, SlingCatcher, SlingLink Wireless, and SlingModem at the CES 2008.
Sling Media already announced the Slingbox HD-Pro in time for CES.
The new SlingCatcher is the missing link to display video from a PC onto a TV.
The Slingbox is designed to transmit video, the SlingCatcher receives video content for display on a television. Video can be received in a variety of ways: The SlingPlayer for TV feature allows the SlingCatcher to display local or remote Slingbox content on a television. The SlingSync feature allows a variety of video file types--including HD content--to be synchronized from the PC to a USB mass storage device (hard drive or thumb drive) attached to the SlingCatcher for television playback. SlingProjector streams any video content displayed on a PC to a television, such as content from popular online video sites. The SlingCathcer includes an IR remote for a truly "lean back" television experience.
SlingCatcher will be available in Q2 for $249.99. At that time, Sling Media will be introducing SlingLink Wireless for $49.99. SlingLink Wireless is an optional 802.11g USB adapter designed for use with the SlingCatcher.
