Show Us What You’ve Got with Cisco ūmi!

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.

And you can also use this number to test out your Cisco ūmi system.
