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. 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.

Cisco ūmi Gets a Taste of New York

We ♥ New York! Why else would we choose to stop at the New York Wine Expo on the Cisco ūmi “Get Together” Mobile Tour? If you’re going to be in or around New York City this weekend, we encourage you to stop by, not only for the excellent wine tasting, but also for a chance to see the magic behind Cisco ūmi. Friday, February 25 through Sunday, February 27, the ūmi Mobile Tour van will be stationed at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center near the Lincoln Tunnel.

While perusing the booths of more than 190 wine producers and sampling more than 760 products, take a break and get a taste of Cisco ūmi. This consumer telepresence system isn’t “flat,” “harsh” or “cloudy.” It provides a “big” experience with “sharp” features and a “strong” finish. With a camera that has pan and zoom capabilities sitting snuggly atop your HD television, ūmi allows you to video chat with family and friends as if they were sitting in your own living room. And with the ability to send and receive video messages via ūmi, you can attend events like the New York Wine Expo knowing you won’t miss a call from loved ones. They can leave you a video message!
