Dish Network unveiled its "Sling-Loaded HD Duo DVR", which is being called the first high-def DVR to be integrated with place-shifting technology.  This means that the ViP 922, which will be available for purchase in the spring quarter, can record video-on-demand on Dish Networks in high-definition, up to 1080p.

This device will be equipped with a 1TB hard drive, effectively storing 1,000 hours of high-definition video.  The Sling Media technology, provided by the parent company of Dish Network, EchoStar, makes it possible to find content over the internet as well as the airwaves, and play these programs back over a connected computer or internet-enabled phone.

The programs are emitted to the laptop or phone through a broadband connection, enabling them to be played anywhere in the world.  The remote control for the ViP 922 is a touch pad, and uses a cursor on the television display.  The entire interface will be revamped, and will be much more user-friendly with pop-up menus and modular titles.  This unit can also be controlled through the internet, which offers users the ability to search the database of TV programs and line up a schedule for recording.
