Sling Media Announces Slingbox PRO-HD, First Slingbox To Stream Full HD Video
Sling Media has announced they will be released the Slingbox PRO-HD, the first of its placeshifting boxes that will be able to stream fully high-definition video, sometime in the third quarter of 2008. But, you are saying, I thought that HD video couldn't be streamed over the internet because of the huge amount of bandwidth required? Well, you would be right, and that's why the PRO-HD is designed to stream HD video only over your home network, although PC's connected to the SlingPlayer software or TV's connected to the SlingCatcher will be able to view a stream up to 1080i in 5.1 surround sound.
Priced at $400, the PRO-HD has the usually range of connections and ports, although nothing for HDMI, and ATSC, NTSC and clear QAM tuners.
