Watching your cable or satellite box from anywhere. I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. For years, the Slingbox has ruled the roost when it comes to place shifting TV. That is…being able to watch your cable or satellite signal on computers and mobile devices in or out of the home. Orb is a good option…but requires the use of a PC as a go between. Now comes an affordable solution from Monsoon Multimedia…the Vulkano Flow. VP Colin Stiles…
“It retails at 99 dollars. And the major feature set is just to do video place shifting, to watch and control your live home television anywhere in the world on any mobile device. And those mobile devices that we support are devices like the Android operating system, the Mac OS, of course the iPad and iPhone, Blackberry.”
The mobile apps cost about 13 dollars. You can also record programs from the free Vulkano TV player on PCs and Macs. You can find more info at MonsoonMultimedia.com. You can find us at BootCamp.com. I’m Fred Fishkin.
