Sling Monitor 150 for Television Service Providers

Edited for brevity from press release.

Sling Media today unveiled the Sling Monitor 150 and announced that DISH Network plans to be the first television service provider to add the device to its product lineup. The Sling Monitor 150 is a light-weight, portable flat screen display that wirelessly shifts your primary HD DVR video experience to any location in your home, eliminating the need to run cables or purchase a second DVR.

"Television providers now have a unique way to wirelessly extend their customers' HDTV experience to places in their home where it's not practical to run a cable such as in their kitchen, home office or workshop," said John M. Paul, executive vice president of Products at Sling Media.

The elegant Sling Monitor 150 is the only free-standing monitor that can accept a full HD broadcast stream over a WiFi network (802.11). In addition to receiving an HD video stream, the Sling Monitor 150 can control all the features of your primary HD DVR. You can watch live TV and view or manage your recordings.

"DISH Network looks forward to becoming the first multichannel video operator to offer our customers wireless multi-room HD services later this year as part of our TV Everywhere strategy," said Ira Bahr, chief marketing officer for DISH Network. "Sling Media has developed an innovative solution for providing whole home video delivery, giving customers a convenient way to enjoy their DISH Network programming wirelessly, anywhere in their home."

How It Works

The Sling Monitor 150 is designed around a high-quality, 15.6 inch, 720p display that includes stereo audio speakers and incorporates a built-in folding stand for countertop or wall-mounted use. The product includes integrated dual-band (2.5 GHz/5 GHz) 802.11n networking, with an internal MIMO antenna and support for WEP, WPA and WPA2 security.
