At this time next year, reports, Cisco is hoping to launch a new consumer grade TelePresence TV camera — most likely under the Linksys brand — that will allow users to videoconference friends and family members at quality levels similar to its corporate TelePresence systems. Details are a little sparse at the moment of how the device will work and its specs, but the device will come bundled or pre-loaded with software from Pure Digital Technologies, Inc. (a company recently acquired by Cisco), similar to its Flip software suite, that will allow people to share recordings on third party websites such as YouTube and MySpace.
