Dish Network will reveal a new HD-DVR unit at CES today that integrates Slingbox technology, allowing anyone to access their television programming via an internet-enabled device. The one terabyte ViP 922 will record up to 1,000 hours of content. And, if that isn’t enough you can hook up external hard drives.
The ViP 922 supports 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480i and 480p resolutions. It also delivers Dish On-Demand content in full 1080p hi-def.
The live or recorded content provided by Dish can be watched on either your laptop, smartphone, iPhone or other internet-enabled device. A unique touchpad remote control comes with the ViP 922, providing cursor-like navigation for control.
The ViP 922 will be available to customers in Spring 2009.
Slingbox is owned by EchoStar’s Sling Media branch, which is headquartered in San Mateo, California. The Slingbox enabled DVR was developed by EchoStar Technologies L.L.C., (a wholly-owned subsidiary of EchoStar Corp) for Dish Network.
