FULL MOTION VIDEO -- Motorola Ojo captures and sends full motion video at 30 frames per second, motion that's near broadcast-TV quality. Your voice remains synchronized to your image, even as the transmission travels over the Internet.
INNOVATIVE DESIGN -- The innovative, stylish and functional design makes it a perfect addition to any room in the home, from the kitchen to the office. The elevated (eye-level), portrait-oriented LCD digital display (7"diagonal) and camera placement create an experience that is natural and true-to-life.
ON-SCREEN CONTROLS -- The on-screen menu system makes it easy to make calls and manage your phone numbers. You can attach an image to any contact in the phone book, so you can "dial by face," or get picture caller ID when Ojo rings. During calls, the display features a small self-viewer, to see how you are positioned in front of the camera, and know exactly what the other party is viewing.
INTEGRATED CORDLESS PHONE -- Use the integrated cordless handset to make voice-only calls using either the public service telephone network (PSTN) or a voice-over-IP (VoIP) network(1). Motorola Ojo also includes a high-quality, full-duplex speaker phone.
EASY SET-UP -- Motorola Ojo easily connects to your high-speed Internet and telephone lines and is immediately ready to send or receive calls. There are no user names, passwords, or logon procedures to learn.
Motorola worked with WorldGate Communications (NASDAQ:WGAT)(NASDAQ: http://www.wgate.com), a leading developer of video telephony technologies, to bring the Ojo Personal Videophone to market. WorldGate's patent-pending innovations for Ojo include a state-of-the-art optimization of the advanced MPEG-4 coding standard (H.264), which enables transmission of 30 frames-per- second video with synchronized audio at data rates as low as 100 Kbps. This allows Motorola Ojo to work within the upstream data rates for both DSL and cable broadband networks, and ensures that existing broadband infrastructures can handle video phone traffic.
The Motorola Ojo(TM) Personal Video Phone (Model PVP1000) carries an MSRP of $799.99(2). Monthly service fees apply. To order Motorola Ojo, visit http://www.motorola.com/ojo .
