CBS 5 (KPIX-TV) and Sling Media, Inc. detail their partnership in bringing 28 live traffic cameras to the TV screen, web and mobile phones.

CBS 5 has adopted Slingboxes for their infrastructure of live webcams. They even used a Slingbox already to transmit a camera signal from moving car in traffic. "Sling Media is thrilled to see CBS 5 use our Slingbox technology in innovative, cost-effective, and compelling ways that benefit their viewers,” said Rich Buchanan, vice president of marketing for Sling Media. "The Slingbox was designed to transmit a video feed across the Internet for viewing on a remote display. CBS 5 has taken this one big step further and we couldn’t be more impressed with the way they have implemented our technology."

Bummer, I thought I had an innovative use of the Slingbox, this is much more creative. I use it just to watch US Cable TV in Europe.
