Monsoon Multimedia has new range of Vulkano devices for home entertainment buffs

If you love staying at home to be entertained, then let Monsoon Multimedia do the job for you with a new range of Vulkano devices, namely the Vulkano, Vulkano Pro, Vulkano Deluxe and Vulkano Deluxe Pro. Vulkano will integrate multiple disruptive technologies including DVR, web video, place shifting, Universal Plug and Play streaming and Mobile Video Recording, while doing away with the need for multiple boxes that add to the clutter of your living room. This tightly integrated hardware and software platform will feature a powerful video processor and local storage, and could very well usher TiVo, Slingbox and Roku out of the front door in due time. Depending on how much storage space you need, the Vulkano will retail anywhere from $259 to $379. When hooked up to a set-top box and a TV, Vulkano will allow one to enjoy a complete video experience across Android, iPhones, iPads, PCs, living room TVs and even Macs and BlackBerry smartphones down the road. To get a better idea of its specifications, read on in the extended post. [Press Release]
