You ask what the difference between the Ojo video phone of now and the AT&T VideoPhone 2500 from 1992 is? Well where can I start… Should we discuss the price difference of the $1,000+ AT&T retro model and the entry level Ojo PVP 900 for $299? What about the jagged 10 frames per second verses video quality 30 fps? How about we just rundown the features…
The Ojo Global Video Service (the only one of it’s kind in the world)is delivered through cable, DSL, VoIP and satellite service providers as well as through retail stores. The Ojo video phone uses the industry standard video protocols for voice and video compression (H.264) to achieve quality at data rates of 100 Kbps. Ojo customers connect their Ojo personal video-phone to their broadband networks to experience true-to-life video communications.
The Ojo video phones come in two product lines. The Ojo (PVP 1000), which has a bit more bells and whistles, for $399, and the Ojo “Shadow” (PVP 900), for $299. The price point for the video service is very low, $14.95 per month- unlimited calls throughout the world.
Will video phones take off? All I cna say is, we will see (no pun intended).
