HD Videoconferencing

Here's a really, really bad ad for the new Cisco HD Telepresence conferencing system, which will no doubt become a must have (or want to have) system for many corporations (despite the advertising).

Robert Scoble is doing a better job of getting the word out. Here's a far less embarrassing (but not as amusing) video demo he has put together.

Anyone who has participated in a frustrating videoconference will appreciate the advances apparent in this new system. The three screen version apparently comes in at around US$300,000, or US$80,000 for a single screen version, so it won't be for personal use any time soon unless you happen to be seriously wealthy.
