Slingbox has rolled out a new beta service called ‘SlingPlayer for Connected Devices’ which enables users to stream content from their Slingbox Solo or Slingbox PRO-HD to Google TV or devices using Google’s STBs such as the Logitech Revue.
SlingPlayer for Connected Devices is currently in development and doesn’t require any software upgrade or application to use, due to it being built as a Flash-based code specifically designed for the Google TV platforms. Watch a promotional video after the jump.
A great feature of the new SlingPlayer for Connected Devices is its ability to automatically test its connection speed to calculate what quality settings it should use for optimal performance.
This together with Google developing a custom build of Chrome with 1080p HD Flash hardware-acceleration support the system shouldn’t cause any lag when viewing.
