Good Wi-Fi connections between the SlingStudio unit and video sources that you are using are critically important for a good video production experience with your SlingStudio setup.
The SlingStudio Hotspot Quality indicator, in the Console app Dashboard, is an extremely useful tool that tells you at a glance how "healthy" the connections are that you are using with your video production.
The SlingStudio Hotspot Quality indicator uses one linear scale from 0 to 80, and another linear scale from 80 to 100:
So the 80 to 100 portion of the scale can indicate an extremely significant improvement, much more so than (for example) the 60 to 80 portion or the 50 to 70 portion. Network quality can vary greatly, and this arrangement really helps you see the difference as quality improves.
