Slingbox AV First Details

While Apple has garnered much attention for previewing its iTV streaming media device this week, Sling Media has quietly built a reputation for its existing Slingbox that can stream video not just to televisions but also to handhelds and smartphones. The company is planning its first revision to the device since its release in 2005, according to an FCC filing. The new version, which has been given the early title of Slingbox A/V, appears to be a shrinking of the three-piece original design into a single unit. Sling Media has also exchanged its earlier 3-in-1 video adapter for direct RCA and S-video connections that will let users record or stream directly from a standard-definition source. Features of the device itself are still a mystery, but the presence of the FCC article indicates a likely release by the end of 2006.
