Cisco brings Video conferencing, Cisco Umi to your HD T.V

Now you can have HD video chat with your clients or family or even friends right from your T.v with Cisco Umi. This system was unveiled by Cisco Systems on Wednesday.

Cisco Umi (pronounced YOU-me) is a telecommunications system that consists of a Cisco-issued high-definition camera with an embedded microphone, a set-top box, and a remote, but you'll need your own HD TV (1080p) and Internet connection to use it.

Cisco's owned algorithms cancel external noise and bring the voices in the foreground.

The good news for the social network users is that Umi is capable of recording videos and can be uploaded to Facebook and YouTube, or attached in an e-mail message.

Umi allow owners to block unwanted callers, and lock the Umi system so that others can't use it in your absence.

HD service are provide with 1080p, 720p or even 480p quality.

It is said the Umi total hardware costs you about $599, with a $24.99 monthly service fee. It will be available from November 14 at Best Buy, with preorders
beginning today.

Cisco and Verizon will bring Umi to Verizon Fios fiber-optic network customers
early in 2011.

Most of the presentations were centered around the coming video explosion, and how it is going to fundamentally change business communications. With a predication that 90% of all network traffic is going to be video by 2015, the main point driven home again and again by Cisco execs is that LAN's, WAN's, and the Internet have to be sized, scaled, and prioritized to handle this huge volume of video traffic.
