Cisco Umi Takes Telepresence To The Home

Cisco has spent the past four years pounding "telepresence" into the brains of business and IT professionals, and now it has introduced Umi, a full telepresence solution for the home. From Umi, you can have video chats with other Umi users (or, it supports Google Video chat), leave video messages and upload video to share with your Umi contacts.

The Cisco Umi solution consists of a set top box (video encoder), a remote control, an HD camera (this has multiple bracket sizes for various HD TV size types, or can sit flat on a larger surface), as well as the Umi cloud service (this stores all of the video and includes a configuration portal where you can set up your contacts and share videos).
