Red Embedded Design has bought video technology to the landline phone for low-cost business and residential use.
The humble phone has been given a makeover by the Red Embedded team, based at Velocity, Bradford, in collaboration with SunCorp Technologies from Hong Kong and BT.
Director at Red Embedded, Rahul Mehra, stated: “The traditional telephone has remained largely the same for the last 100 years. We have completely modernised it, exploiting broadband technology to bring it inline with the functionality we now expect from our mobile phones.”
A high-end speaker phone, VoIP, high definition sound, caller ID and the ability to import a mobile SIM card and phone book, pictures, SMS, MS, downloadable ring tones and video, have been added to what before was only used to make and receive calls.
The Red Embedded team developed the technology behind the BT Videophone 1000.
