CISCO here we GO! ------ up 1.4% today


SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Cisco Systems Inc. rolled out its real-time video conference system for 50,000 employees worldwide in January, inviting them to test equipment with far-flung friends, family and co-workers.
Most big Cisco offices have TelePresence, which debuted in October. The technology - which includes high-definition monitors, highly sensitive audio equipment and integrated networking gear - starts at $99,000. A system that accommodates at least a dozen people costs $299,000.
TelePresence aims to be so realistic as to make conference-call participants believe the person talking on the monitor is in the same room. Multiple conversations can occur simultaneously, without awkward audio delays or jerky video.
