Sling Media Unveils Expanded Slingbox Platform At CES

Stocks in this article: SATS

My Media

My Media is part of the company's digital media framework. Now Slingbox 500 customers can transfer and enjoy personal photos and videos from a USB hard drive attached to the Slingbox 500. Customers can play back any personal content stored on the USB drive directly on their TV screen using the Slingbox 500's remote control.

SlingSync, a feature of My Media, acts like a personal cloud that allows Slingbox 500 customers to archive and store their captured moments onto a secure, compact USB drive while creating more space on their smartphone to collect new ones. With the Slingbox 500 and a smartphone installed with the SlingPlayer app on the same local area network, photos and videos are synced automatically -- from the phone to USB drive. My Media features will be delivered via firmware and software updates to both Slingbox 500 and SlingPlayer software for iOS and Android smartphones in the coming weeks.

Slingbox Companion

Slingbox Companion is a free 2 nd screen application that will be available to all Slingbox 500 and Slingbox 350 customers who also own an iPad 2 or higher model. Slingbox Companion will feature content discovery tools that help customers find shows based on their interests. They can then navigate to the selected show to watch on the TV using the tablet app as a remote.

Slingbox 500 customers who have connected a USB drive to their Slingbox 500 can use Slingbox Companion to navigate to photos and videos from My Media and play them on their TV. In addition, Slingbox Companion will feature supplemental TV program content like live stats during a sporting event, enhancing the TV-viewing experience. Finally, customers can share what they are viewing with friends on Facebook and Twitter and see what's trending on TV. Slingbox Companion will be available this spring.
