Look what Mr. UPS dropped off today, out of the blue (and without a working link to the MacOS client download). The Monsoon Media Vulkano box. For those out of the loop my buddy Dave Zatz sums it up:
But the Volcano line is more than just a placeshifter, with actual video input and television out capabilities. For playback of local media (USB or eSATA storage, UPnP, DLNA) or a variety of web content, starting with YouTube streaming and CinemaNow video on demand downloads. Additionally, video from an attached set-top box can be offloaded onto attached or (later) integrated storage. For local or remote playback which can be streamedâ€¦ or copied (think TiVoToGo) for subway or air travel.
Later I’ll plug this baby in and take some UI screenshots. UPDATE: Now with UI walkthrough pictures and here is my first thoughts on the device.
