Cisco says it's done selling hardware for its Umi video-conferencing hardware, but it will continue to support it for people who already purchased it.
Cisco debuts a home version of its videoconferencing system, called Umi. The Umi system consists of a camera, set-top box, and remote that can hook up to a person's own HDTV.
The Umi service includes a Cisco high-definition camera with an embedded microphone, a set-top box, and a remote, but you'll need your own HDTV and Internet connection.
The pricey Umi service is built around the HD television that the company hopes is a centerpiece of the modern living room.
