Cisco announces to showcase breakthrough consumer video Experiences at the CES 2010.
Cisco will share its vision and progress toward developing an entirely new category of video communication, called home telepresence, which uses a consumer's existing HDTV and broadband connection to deliver a unique natural video communication experience from the comfort of a living room.

Cisco will enter U.S. home telepresence field trials this spring, with Verizon as an early partner.
Home telepresence field trials in France will start later in 2010, with France Telecom as Cisco's early partner.

"With Cisco's best-in-class telepresence technology and networks such as Verizon's advanced, all-fiber-optic network, we believe we will deliver a video communication experience to consumers unlike anything they've seen before," said Marthin DeBeer, senior vice president and general manager, Cisco's Emerging Technologies group. "Home telepresence will make a difference in consumers' lives by allowing them to enjoy natural video communications with family and friends wherever they are located. To ensure that early home telepresence users will have plenty of friends and family to communicate with, in addition to calling other home telepresence users, they will be able to place calls to PCs using a webcam and video chat service."

Cisco also discovered the TV as the best device for video conferencing. Skype announced yesterday to offer video conferencing on new LG and Panasonic TVs.
