Sling Media Introduces Sling Receiver 300 for Television Service Providers

Sling Media, a company owned by the parent of Dish Network called Echostar, is out with a 1080i set-top box that can perform the feats of the Dish Network 922 including 1080i video, wireless networking and much more.

Sling-Receiver300.gifSling Media, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of EchoStar Corporation just unveiled the Sling® Receiver 300 to television service providers. The Sling Receiver 300 is a companion product to a SlingLoaded• set-top box, such as the award-winning EchoStar SlingLoaded 922 HD DVR, that delivers a full 1080i video stream from an HD DVR to any other HD television in a home using the viewer's wireless home network. The Sling Receiver 300 was selected as a CES Innovations 2010 Design and Engineering Award honoree in the Multi-Room Audio/Video category.
With the Sling Receiver 300, viewers can enjoy the same HD programming that they experience on their primary HDTV on a secondary HDTV in their home without the need to run additional cables or purchase a second DVR.

Slingbox-300.gif"HDTV viewers often want to extend their main set-top box experience to another HDTV with minimal hassle and expense," said John M. Paul, executive vice president of Products at Sling Media. "The Sling Receiver 300 can extend the full quality of a primary HD DVR experience to any secondary HDTV in the home, while eliminating the cost and problems of running cable."


How It Works
The Sling Receiver 300 connects to a second HDTV via its built-in HDMI, component or composite video connectors. Depending on the connection method, multiple video formats up to 1080i can be delivered. Audio is delivered to the second TV using HDMI, digital audio or analog audio outputs. The Sling Receiver 300 is small enough to be mounted behind an HDTV.

The Sling Receiver 300 is one in a suite of products and services that EchoStar Technologies L.L.C and its affiliate Sling Media are making available to television service providers to help them attract new subscribers, retain current customers, and bring placeshifting to the largest audience possible.
