Zoya Fallah shared her fantastic experience of her first Cisco ūmi Call with her dad with Cisco readers and friends, details from her description: “Recently, my dad bought me a Cisco ūmi Home TelePresence system so we could keep in touch face to face. I must say, being able to see him in my living room whenever I want is fantastic. Our first call was ideal, because his cousin Ruthie happened to be visiting from Ohio. I’d never met her before (although she says we met when I was a baby). It was so cool to “meet” her in person, and put a face to the name I’d heard for so long. It really was like being there.” In some ways, it indicates a new level of video chat.
Nowadays, with the development of Information Technology, video call, video chat, and video conferencing have been built around us and our connecting world. Video has lost its mystery since we can carried a device mobile phone, digital camera or camcorder, iPhone, iPad or Flip capable of recording video. What’s more, in an age of YouTube and Facebook, people can share their favorite experience and story with people who come from all over the world.
Today a typical home broadband connection can easily handle full-screen standard definition video and a good one can do HD. In addition, nearly all laptops feature built-in cameras. Indeed, video chat and video call change our daily life.
Mobile devices, however, are still a challenge because of the challenges of moving quality video over wireless networks. So network manufacturer such as Cisco, Netgear, TP-LINK, Huawei, trying to find a best solution to improve people’s video chat and call. 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi, in some sense, achieved the situation on video chat.
It’s obvious that video calling and chat are becoming increasingly important. Achieving its full benefit is going to require continuing network improvement, especially in wireless. With the effort of network manufacturer, we hope that we can enjoy the convenience that brought from Information Technology.
