Aside from the improved support, the ūmi lineup has also been expanded and adjusted for different price points. The 1080p variant has been reduced from $599 down to $499, while a new entry-level edition, with a maximum 720p resolution, can be purchased for $399. More importantly, Cisco decided to drop the monthly service charge from $25 to $10.
