Umi is a video communications system conceived for private users. It transmits audio and video signals in high resolution so that audio latencies or delays in image streaming are avoided. To guarantee optimal image and sound quality, the system automatically adapts to the given light and sound conditions. Umi is easily set up: when connected to an HDTV, it is immediately operational. Three components are included: an HD camera module, a remote control, and an electronic console which easily stores with existing DVR equipment. Inspired by geometric forms, the system is designed to harmonically adapt to modern living environments. Besides video conferencing, it is also possible to record HD videos to be sent to friends and acquaintances via email, Facebook or YouTube.
