Biscotti Inc., a provider of high definition video calling products for the home and business, outlined its plans for this week’s CES 2013 in Las Vegas. The primary focus is to be on the company’s latest video calling solutions and innovations, including Biscotti XS, the latest in its line of HDTV-based video calling appliances, and new MyBiscotti services.
“Biscotti is reinventing the video calling experience,” said Dr. Matthew B. Shoemake, CEO and founder of Biscotti, in a statement. “Video calling should be just as simple as voice calling. The Biscotti and MyBiscotti Cloud Services we are demonstrating at CES provide our customers with a convenient and comfortable video calling experience, allowing our customers to make and receive video calls as easily as picking up the phone or sending a text.”
The latest Biscotti XS features a handful of hardware and software enhancements, such as high-performance Wi-Fi, giving it the highest level of Wi-Fi performance of any TV Cam due to dual band, dual antenna and multiple in/multiple out (MIMO) technology. Biscotti XS also features Ethernet connectivity for those not using Wi-Fi.
A unique Multiport Power Adapter with a single connector and cable provides the Biscotti XS with its Ethernet connectivity, as well as universal power and international power blades, and an external 3.5mm audio jack for connecting an external microphone.
MyBiscotti Cloud Services to be introduced at CES include a new video mail offering, which records incoming video calls and stores them on the Biscotti cloud. This service can record video from any device — smartphone, tablet, PC or a Biscotti device — and video messages can be viewed from any Web browser. Similarly, MyBiscotti cloud-based multiparty video calling will be showcased at CES, and is accessible from nearly any device.
In November, Biscotti entered into a distribution agreement with North American technology distributor D&H Distributing, expanding the channel reach of Biscotti TV Cams in the retail market.
