Cisco promises Wi-Fi Flip, FaceTime-enabled video network

updated 07:15 pm EDT, Wed June 30, 2010

Company also working on Flash workaround

Cisco has disclosed plans to launch a new Flip camera with Wi-Fi support, while expanding its range of products geared for Apple's mobile devices. The company has yet to provide specific details regarding the Wi-Fi Flip, although it is expected to arrive on the market before the end of the year.

"We didn't buy Flip to have it be only a video recorder," Cisco senior VP of emerging technologies Marthin De Beer told Computerworld in an interview.

The executive also suggests Cisco is working on a video client for the iPhone 4 that will be submitted to the App Store. The iOS app will be based on Mobi, while the company would "love to integrate with FaceTime."

As a potential workaround to Apple's lack of Flash support on its mobile devices, Cisco is also producing a video transcoding system. The Media Experience Engine will work inside carrier or enterprise networks to automatically convert Flash video to formats supported by the iPhone and iPad.

Cisco has yet to announce full details, including pricing or launch dates, for its range of new projects.
