Sling Media is showing a number of new products designed to support and enhance the remote content viewing experience.
The company is offering through the Dish Network a 15-inch Wi-Fi monitor that can be carried around the house. It receives content through the consumer’s home Wi-Fi network. A complementary device, the Sling Receiver, uses the consumer’s in-home wireless network to “sling” content to rooms that don’t have wired network connections.
The Sling Touch Control is a remote control with a built-in touch screen. It allows the user to access all of the Slingbox menu capabilities, from programming the DVR to searching for content, without the need to display the menu on the primary TV screen and disturb the other people in the room who are watching TV.
