Show Us What You’ve Got with Cisco ūmi!

- April 4, 2011 - 2 Comments

There have been a lot of fantastic moments shared between family and friends over Cisco ūmi. People have used umi to transform their HDTVs to bring the family together for a reunion, to broadcast first steps for the grandparents, or even to get a violin lesson from a former teacher.  We thank the ūmi community for sharing these stories with us and we look forward to hearing many more.

But even better is when you share how you’re using ūmi, through ūmi!  We were so thrilled when a user shared a ūmi video with us that we decided to open up our own ūmi account and welcome videos from all users. Whether your band wants to perform an impromptu concert, you want to share how you virtually met your new nephew or you want to tell us what you think of HD video chatting, we want to hear from you! And you can also use this number to test out your Cisco ūmi system.

We’ll select the best video messages and post them on our Facebook and Twitter pages, as well as our blog, in order to showcase how people are using Cisco ūmi to connect with loved ones across the nation.

It’s easy to send us a ūmi video:

  1. Go to “Contacts” on your Cisco ūmi system.
  2. Select “Add a Contact.”
  3. Add our number: 208500.
  4. Record a ūmi video.
  5. When you’re done, send it to 208500.

We look forward to seeing and sharing some of your favorite ūmi moments!

  1. When can I use my umi at home to connect to my corporate Cisco Telepresence so I don't have to drive into the office to talk to my peers?

    • Hi David, Cisco umi is not a work at home solution, rather it is meant to connect you with friends and family. That being said, we are working on interoperability between umi and business telelpresence to provide virtual services to consumers. Stay tuned! Thanks!
