Vulkano Trying To Mix SlingBox With TiVo

vulcano Monsoon Multimedia is releasing a new set of products called Vulkano that combine the benefits of SlingBox with TiVo placeshifting. Essentially it gives you the functionality of a DVR, Web Video player, Place Shifter, UPnP streaming box, and Mobile Video Recording all in one device. They range from $259-$379 based on storage capacity for the DVR.

The really interesting part is that they are coming out with a free BlackBerry app to let you stream video from your BlackBerry. You will be able to watch and control any TV through Wi-Fi or 3G and schedule recordings from their guide. Supposedly it will also allow you to transfer these recordings to your PC and other devices.

This is really going to be a big hit if they actually do it right. Hopefully there will be no monthly subscriptions like TiVo otherwise this could be dead on arrival.

Check out more details at or you can preorder at the same link. After launch the device will be available through Amazon and other retailers if you prefer and can wait.
