Cisco ūmi Giveaway: Win a Pair of Cisco ūmi Telepresence Units and 1 Year of Service
With so many options on ways to stay connected with family and friends, it’s easy to become a little lost. Trying to determine the best, most cost-effective way to chat with loved ones can be a bit daunting…until now.
Cisco ūmi (pronounced You-Me) recently launched a first of its kind video calling system that works through any HD TV. People can connect live with their friends and family to share all of life’s special moments live through the television, from the comfort of their living room couch.
With so many amazing features, Cisco ūmi is great for:
- New moms who want to stay close to their moms as they navigate all the “firsts”, and keep the new baby close to his/her grandparents
- Face-to-face chats with girlfriends, to check in on siblings or elderly parents and siblings, or perhaps most importantly, to stay connected to their own children and grandchildren who are far from home
- Recording or receiving HD video messages that capture baby’s first steps, Halloween costumes, or showing off a growing belly bump, that can be shared via ūmi, YouTube, Facebook, etc
- For working moms who are often on the road, Cisco ūmi also interoperates with Google Video, allowing moms to use their PC or Mac to share all the moments at home – sing a bedtime song, book or to blow a kiss good night
Cisco ūmi carries a retail price of $499 (for 1080p video quality) and coming soon $399 (for 720p video quality), with an annual service fee of $99.
