Cisco Announces ?mi HD Home Video Calling System For $599, $25 Per Month
The rumors were true: Cisco has announced a new video calling system called ?mi (pronounced yoo-mee), which allows for easy 1080p video calling between your TV and any other ?mi system or Google Video Chat. Sounds great, although the $599 price, plus $24.99 per month for access to the service, may severely limit the uptake of this otherwise impressive piece of kit.
The ?mi system is made up of a camera unit, a console box, and a remote. It should work with any HD television and broadband internet connection (the TV itself need not be online), and will adjust the quality of the video automatically to accommodate fluctuations in bandwidth.
