Monsoon's Vulcano Flow records TV to mobile devices

Monsoon Multimedia, which a year ago began shipping its "God box," the Vulkano Pro, says its Vulkano Flow now offers direct mobile recording via Wi-Fi for iPhones, iPads and Android devices. Content is encrypted to avoid copyright infringement.

The $99 Vulkano Flow, which is positioned as a SlingBox rival, also allows users to pause, rewind and fast-forward recorded content.

"Consumers are making smartphones and tablets an essential part of their every day lives and are expecting to view and browse the TV content that they pay for at their leisure, no matter where they are in the world," said Colin Stiles, EVP of sales and marketing at Monsoon.

To record a show on one of the supported mobile devices, users will need to purchase a $12.99 app and connect the device via Wi-Fi.
