Tune-in to see Cisco ūmi featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show on Wednesday, March 23 as part of “Are You Happy?
I was thinking about all the supply chain agility issues Santa would have this year – probably the same every year. Like the fact that he has to deliver to hundreds of millions of folks on one particular day of the year.
He’s been doing this for hundreds of years with only one workshop – not located anywhere near any major distribution routes and with a small but obviously highly productive workforce. Add to this his orders come in only a few weeks before 25th December – some on the 24th! And somehow he hasn’t any carry over stock on the 26th. Miss the 25th and you’ve had it!

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.
“Joining us on Cisco ūmi, a new way to video call from home” was Oprah’s opening line before The Oprah Winfrey Show went live with Cisco ūmi yesterday, November 3rd.
Oprah and Gayle were able to talk each of the two families which included 8 family members each on their couch in the comfort of their own home using Cisco ūmi telepresence.
Oprah also references Cisco ūmi on Oprah.com Gift Finder “Small Gadgets: A few little gadgets we think are just great.” We hope your stocking is big enough to fit Cisco ūmi this year to someone you wish you saw more often!
