In two weeks, Monsoon Multimedia will begin shipping their Vulkano multimedia streaming device. Described as the world’s first “all in one video product”, the Vulkano will let you record live TV and watch recordings at home or anywhere in the world on your PC, Mac, iPhone, iPod or iPad, Blackberry or Android device.
Vulkano even lets you watch live TV on the go, and playback local video files off its internal storage or an external hard drive. To make a great list of specifications even better, you can also transfer recordings from the Vulkano to your device, no matter where you are. On your laptop, desktop or mobile device, you also get access to an electronic program guide, which means you can schedule TV recordings anywhere you are.
All in all, this product really does seem perfect for some entertainment on the road – it means you can arrive at the airport, and wirelessly download recordings from home to your mobile device, giving you something to watch on your flight. Once you get back home, you can use the Vulkano to watch recordings and Internet content from YouTube and other providers.
The Vulkano is available for pre-orders today, and shipments are scheduled to take place starting August 10th. The “basic” Vulkano comes with 16GB of storage, and the “professional version” comes with an external 1Tb drive. Prices start at $279.99. You can learn more about the Vulkano at its product page, where you’ll also find pre-order links.
We’ll have a full review of the Vulkano as soon as we can get our hands on one!
