Monsoon Vulkano Blast launches post-CES

Monsoon on Tuesday updated its Vulkano media hubs with new models it had already previewed at CES. The Blast can now stream video up to 1080i and has a built-in, 160GB hard drive that can store media and serve as a DVR for unencrypted TV without needing an external drive. Many existing features carry over, including YouTube streaming, local network media sharing over 802.11n Wi-Fi or Ethernet and remote playback from either a free desktop app or $10 iOS, BlackBerry and Android mobile apps.

Symbian and Windows Phone 7 versions of the viewer apps are coming soon, Monsoon said. Amazon VOD, Netflix and Yahoo Widget support should come soon through firmware updates.

The Vulkano Flow is a newer concept for Monsoon and is focused solely on streaming existing TV concept to a computer, phone or tablet much as with a Slingbox or the Blast.

The Blast and Flow will cost $199 and $99 respectively and should ship later this month.
