Cool Technology of the Week

Over the past year, I've tested the Cisco Telepresence CTS 500 and Tandberg EX-90 video teleconferencing technologies in my home.   They've worked very well to reduce my travel schedule but they are more expensive than a typical consumer would want to spend.

This week, Cisco introduced the umi (You-Me) a home telepresence unit that will be sold by Best Buy for $599 starting October 18.   It requires an internet connection, an HDMI connection to an existing HDTV, and a PC or Mac for checking video voice mail.

HDTV video conferencing in the home for $599.    That's cool!
