EXCLUSIVE: Cisco ūmi Takes Daytime Center Stage

- December 17, 2010 - 0 Comments

Did anyone have the opportunity to see Cisco ūmi’s introduction on The Oprah Winfrey Show on November 3rd? If not, we’ve got a quick recap!

Last month, Oprah and her best friend Gayle used Cisco ūmi to reconnect with the people they met on their camping trip to Yosemite National Park. With ūmi, Oprah and Gayle engaged with two families, eight members in each family sitting on sofas in their living rooms. Eight people captured on one telepresence camera? You bet! Not only did the families fit nicely on the TV’s flat screen, but they showed up in high-def!

See how people are sharing their stories using Cisco ūmi on their HD television from their living room connecting to The Oprah Winfrey Show studio.

Oprah and Freedom author Jonathan Franzen also used Cisco ūmi to connect with the Gower Street Book Club during a book discussion early in December.

We’re thrilled to work with The Oprah Winfrey Show and look forward to Cisco ūmi’s next national onscreen appearance!
