What is Slingbox™ Technology about. ?…. a brief overview.


ukTelevision.tv will be using Slingbox™ technology. A brief overview of the hardware and software can simplify the learning curve.

What is a Slingbox™?

A Slingbox™ can redirect one of its inputs to a single computer located on a local network or remotely, when using a broadband Internet connection, anywhere in the world. Only one user can access a single Slingbox™ at a time. Accessing content using a Slingbox™ is known as placeshifting.
A Slingbox™ connects a TV source (via coaxial cable, composite cables, component cables, or an S-video cable) to an existing Internet connection. Users can change channels from a remote location.
Slingplayer software on a user's computer connects to the Slingbox™ over the Internet and provides the user interface for viewing the video stream and changing channels.
A virtual remote controls all connected devices and changes the channels with the use of the computer mouse.
For viewing remotely on a TV rather than a user’s computer a SlingCatcher™ is connected to the Internet and the remote TV and controlled by a remote that ships with the Slingcatcher™
