Cisco’s annual networking conference, Cisco Live!, is in full swing and the networking giant is unveiling the initial details on several upcoming video-oriented products. For consumer video camera buffs, Cisco is working on a Wi-Fi-enabled version of its popular Flip Video camera. Details are sparse but senior vice president of emerging technologies, Marthin De Beer, did hint that the portable camera may launch in time for the holidays. Cisco is also developing an enterprise-level video transcoding service, called the Media Experience Engine, that would allow companies to internally distribute video to a variety of platforms on the fly. Last but not least, Cisco is planning to release an iOS 4 video client for the Apple iPhone and is exploring opportunities to integrate its technologies into Apple’s FaceTime┬ávideo conferencing tool.

Flip Video launches FlipShare TV for your Flip video streaming pleasure

flipshare-tvPure Digital Technologies, maker of the popular Flip Video portable video camera, announced the new FlipShare TV, a Flip video sharing and streaming device for your TV.

You can browse your local content using the supplied remote and can also create online channels to share your Flip videos with friends and family. Though the hardware is pretty enough, the concept is way too limited. Do we really need another streaming video appliance, especially one that is proprietary and only streams Flip-formatted videos? If you think we do, you can pick one up from the Flip video store for $149 starting today. More →
