The Slingbox Pro HD takes the previous year's Slingbox Pro and Pro HD Connect and takes it to the next level, not only doing the basic Slingbox thing of sending HD video across the network or internet to a computer, but also allowing you to watch full HD video anywhere inside the house when you use a Slingcatcher.

It supports 16:9 widescreen video, as well as four input-output sets (ATSC, S-video, composite video and component video, along with analog or digital audio out). If you've got a fast enough Ethernet network (most should be unless you're throwing files around concurrently) or a fast enough Wi-Fi network, you can view the full 1080i video on your laptop or a spare TV.

We got to put our hands on it earlier in the week, and the unit itself looked and felt nice (the black looks a bit nicer than the earlier units' designs). We didn't get to see it in motion just yet, but we'll give it a whiz at CES. This'll be available in August '08 at $399.

I'll have to find out more about this at CES next week. I already have the Pro, which I thought was already HD capable (with the dongle, that is, which I have). Maybe this is simply dongle-free?
