Update: “What If Your TV Could…” Video Contest – Win USD$10,000

May 25, 2010 - 14 Comments

On May 13, 2010 Cisco launched What If Your TV Could…?, a video contest asking consumers to submit creative ideas about what they wish their TV could do. For an opportunity to win a Grand Prize of USD$10,000, as well as the opportunity receive one of (3) USD$500 gift cards for the most viewed videos, participants are asked to submit a short video explaining what future capabilities they would like to see on their TV.

Over the past week, we have received over 50 submissions ranging from a Hologram TV to Multi-dimensional TV and Healthcare TV. The top three highest rated videos so far are “TV Clone of Me,” “Those Awesome Shades” & “What If My TV Could Transport Me Anywhere in the World?”

We encourage you to check out these videos, as well as all the others on Please view, rate and add comments to your favorite videos.

If you haven’t already done so, submit your own video response to the question, “If your TV could do anything, what would you want it to do?” on Cisco’s contest website at

If you don’t feel comfortable getting on camera, tape a friend, a family member, a cat, a dog, BE CREATIVE!

Videos must be less than three minutes in length. The Grand Prize winner will be based on the number of views, average rating and creativity as determined by a panel of judges from Cisco.

For contest terms and conditions, please visit:  Contest ends July 13, 2010.
