I saw this and read with much interest. I am guessing the monthly fees is for cisco to host the MCU on your behalf.

At that price and spec it does fill the void in VC between your low end cameras ie (USB Logitech, etc) and your higher end Tandberg/Polycom/Telepresence.

I know it is a pipe dream but it would be nice to see if you could use that device with your own MCU thus giving branch uses a better option without having to deploy a high end VC unit.

Don't mean to reignite the NBN debate, but I just saw this today and think this is quite relevant, as HD video conferencing is being pitched as one of the major selling points for fibre broadband:


In particular, here are the bandwidth requirements:

"To fully enjoy your ūmi experience, your broadband download and upload speed must be:

 *   Minimum 1.5 Mbps upload and 1.5 mbps download speeds for 720p
 *   Minimum 3.5 Mbps upload and 3.5 mbps download speeds for 1080p"

So, there you have it. Today's "standard" 1Mbit/s upstream (which, incidentally, isn't "standard" at all on cable plans) isn't going to cut it. At least not for this solution (which, by the way, also appears to be compatible with google talk).
