LAS VEGAS -- Sling Media, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of EchoStar Corporation (NASDAQ: SATS), introduces new Slingbox platform developments designed to enhance the TV-viewing experience for customers who own the recently released Slingbox 500 and Slingbox 350 placeshifting devices. My Media™ and Slingbox Companion™ will give Slingbox customers a new way to discover, watch and share content on the TV and portable devices. My Media, featuring SlingSync™, will be available exclusively for Slingbox 500 customers as an extension to the SlingProjector features currently available. SlingSync makes it easy for customers to sync photos and videos to a Slingbox 500 with a connected USB drive and view them on the TV. Slingbox Companion, Sling Media’s 2nd screen social TV app for iPad, will be available for Slingbox 500 customers initially. Slingbox 350 support will follow later this year. “These new features bring instant, additional value to Slingbox 500 and Slingbox 350 customers at no extra cost and position Slingbox firmly as a device of choice in the living room,” said Sling Media’s Senior Vice President and General Manager Raghu Tarra. “The My Media feature delivers on the platform promise of the Slingbox 500. Slingbox Companion further leverages the Slingbox to deliver a powerful 2nd screen application for the iPad that combines content discovery and navigation with rich media and social media features.” Sling Media Inc.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
