Cisco stops selling Umi video conferencing gear

Cisco has stopped sales of its Umi video conferencing system Umi that has been price-dropped and re-branded for business use, SAI learned. While an official announcement to this effect hasn't been made by Cisco, a spokesperson confirmed to the source Cisco has stopped selling the system. When the system launched, it was expensive at $600 and included a 720p camera, controller and set-top box. In March, it was discounted to $400.

There was also a $10 monthly fee involved, and customers hardly flocked to the service, especially since Skype was free and required only a much cheaper third-party camera.

Cisco will continue to support the service for existing customers, allowing them to make calls to other Umi users and Google video chat accounts. No new subscriptions will be made, however.
