Motorola Takes Ojo Video Phone to Retail Channels

Motorola will begin offering its Ojo Personal Video Phone . through Tweeter Home Entertainment, Magnolia Audio Video, and Harvey Electronics retail outlets across the U.S. Motorola now offers Ojo in over 200 retail locations

Motorola worked with WorldGate Communications to bring the Ojo Personal Videophone to market. WorldGate's provided optimization of the 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 the 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. Ojo supports SIP and network-based call signaling (NCS), making the product interoperable with video phones provided by other manufacturers.

The Motorola Ojo Personal Video Phone (Model PVP1000) carries an MSRP of $799.99. A $14.95 monthly service fee applies.
