Digital Trends had the opportunity to sit down with the CEO of Sling Media and chat with him about their products and technology. For those of you not in the know, the Slingbox allows you to take content from your TV, DVD player etc and strema it over the net.
From the article:
Along with rolling out new Slingbox products, Sling Media has also unveiled SlingPlayer viewing clients for a variety of smaller mobile platforms such as Pocket PCs and Windows Mobile Smartphones. They also recently announced they will be bringing the SlingPlayer to phones which run the Symbian operating system, such as select models from Nokia and Sony Ericsson.
With such a variety of devices the Slingbox has to stream to, as well as the variety of issues which can arise over broadband speeds, Sling Media’s streaming technology is designed to take all of these things into consideration as it delivers video over the Internet.
