Well hey — ’s finally announced the consumer-level HD video conferencing system that’s been rumored for a while now . Called Umi, (you me — get it?) the system consists of a 1080p camera module, remote, and a separate set-top box. says Umi will allow for full 1080p video calls with 720p/30 recording, with a fallback to 720p / 480p if bandwidth is constrained. The camera itself has a glass lens with an optical zoom, autofocus, auto exposure and auto white balance, as well as motorized pan, tilt, and zoom. There’s also a motorized privacy shutter, which is a nice touch.
