SightSpeed Comes Out Slinging

by Bruce Stewart

Om has the scoop today on a very interesting twist that will be coming soon to SightSpeed - the ability to use it to place-shift your TV viewing with Slingbox-type functionality. I've been very impressed with SightSpeed, it's the nicest and most robust video conferencing system I've tried, and I think this is a fascinating development. The basic idea is that you'll be able to install SightSpeed on a Media Center PC at your home and then view your media and TV on any other computer via your SightSpeed account. No specifics yet on when this new functionality will be released, but for more details and pretty screenshots check out Om's SightSpeed Shifting Places.
