SlingBox Pro HD
Announced last week.
The Slingbox PRO-HD sets itself apart from the existing Slingbox family, which includes the Slingbox Solo and the Slingbox Pro, as it is the first and only Slingbox product that is capable of streaming HD content.
While the PRO and SOLO down-convert HDTV sources to EDTV resolutions, the PRO-HD preserves the original resolution of the feed and delivers it to a HD-compatible laptop or desktop computer or secondary TV when paired with a SlingCatcher.
The Pro-HD includes standard (4:3) and widescreen (16:9) video support and features multiple integrated sets of audio-video inputs and outputs (ATSC/QAM HDTV Tuner, S-video, composite video, component video and either analog or multi-channel, 5.1 surround, digital audio) and features integrated looping outputs for each input.
Slingbox PRO-HD will be available for purchase in the third quarter of 2008 for a suggested retail price of $439.99 ($399.99 in the United States)
