Slingbox 700U

Fast-Track your TV Anywhere Strategy


The Slingbox 700U enables television service providers to quickly make an IP-enabled set-top box SlingLoaded. With SlingLoaded technology viewers can watch their video content in high-definition (HD) on a laptop or desktop computer, anywhere in the world. To make a compatible set-top box SlingLoaded, the Slingbox 700U connects to it with the USB cable provided—it's as easy as plug and play.

The Slingbox 700U's small size only hints at the technology inside. Not much larger than a checkbook, it sports a striking industrial design. It is powered solely by its USB connection, which eliminates the need for any other wires or connectors. In real time, the Slingbox 700U takes the incoming video stream from the set-top box, transcodes it and passes it back to the set-top box. The set-top box then streams the video over the Internet to the SlingPlayer on compatible devices.

From the SlingPlayer on their laptop, desktop computer or supported mobile device, consumers can watch their standard-definition (SD) or HD content wherever they are located. They can also view their program guide and change channels, pause, fast forward or rewind and set up their DVR recordings with the on-screen virtual remote control. For added functionality, the Slingbox 700U supports the features of the intuitive SlingGuide service. SlingGuide's powerful browse and search technology speeds the discovery of existing and new programming.

For television providers the Slingbox 700U is the quickest way to implement your TV Anywhere strategy. Working with us, you only need to add software to your existing set-top box in the field. With TV Anywhere, you can differentiate and add value for current and potential consumers, thereby reducing churn and growing your subscriber base.
