Migo's sneak peek at smart video-, music-syncing software

Smarter music- and video-syncing and conversion software is on the menu for Migo, which specializes in taking multimedia and sensitive data to-go on portable devices.

Migo Software has announced a new, beefier version of its PC-to-device syncing software slated to unveil in beta form in January 2008. I got to preview the Windows app, code named SlingShot, at the CTIA Wireless conference.

The slick new interface will bring together back-end tools of smart device and format detection that will operate at every stage of the media transfer experience. It will include, for example, a smart setup wizard that helps configure your cell phone or external hard drive to play your music and video, and on-the-fly format conversion for your cell phone or external hard drive.

"SlingShot" will start by pulling content from your existing media storehouses; iTunes, MediaMonkey, and Napster, for example. It then syncs to your device, where Slingshot's mobile component takes over, making engagement as high a priority as getting the media content onto the device.

Migo Software has several syncing and secure storage products available now on CNET, including Migo Sync and Digital Vault.
