Media's SlingCatcher is the counterpart for the company's
Slingboxes. While the
originally developed SlingPlayer and SlingPlayer Mobiles allowed you to watch TV on your
PC or smartphone, the SlingCatcher includes the SlingPlayer in a piece of
hardware and brings your Slingbox back to every
connectable TV thanks to SlingCatcher's on-screen interface and remote control.
Furthermore, it's a universal media player for your TV by bringing Internet
videos from your PC or personal media from your USB hard drive to your PC as
well. The SlingCatcher gives you access to your Slingbox on another TV in your
house or anywhere in the world, if you can watch a video on your PC, you can use
the SlingProjector software to project it wirelessly to your TV or attach a USB
storage to the SlingCatcher and view your favorite media files on your TV.
Sling Media's SlingCatcher includes a full complement of standard definition
outputs including S-Video and Composite Video plus high definition outputs
(Component Video and HDMI) to ensure compatibility with your TV. SlingCatcher
can also output video signals that work with televisions worldwide (NTSC, PAL,
SECAM, HDMI 720p/1080i). The hardware remote control makes remote controlling
your connected Slingbox, DVD player or HDD recorder, like a Windows Media
Center, even more convenient.
The Sling Media SlingCatcher is available from Sling Media's online shops and
retailers around the world; it costs around 299,00 Euro/US$ 199.00.
