Ok, so yesterday I had a Sorenson nTouch Videophone installed. I have some pros to it and some cons… but lets go through what it actually is.
It is a physical videophone that attaches to a TV.
This is the box it comes in (with a *in my case at least* nice Deaf man to install it)
it has a webcam with a flasher on it
The webcam moves back and forth a little, you can zoom in, and out, to the right, to the left etc
The VP itself is a about the size of a standard modem or router
It connects via an HDMI cable or a standard AVI cable. I had an open HDMI, so that is what I used.
- good video quality
- not very big
- sign mail (haven’t determined yet if it is only from other deafies or not)
- requires an ethernet connection (I had to move my modem so it was closer to my TV)
- can only be used at home
This is… without actually using it yet though… so I will update after I actually use it. I also have not tried being able to call people who are not Sorenson customers… but hopefully I will be able to soon.
going to have dinner now… hopefully this helps someone. (remember it is free!!)
