The irresistible allure of the videophone continues to elude us, but Wilmington, North Carolina-based C-Phone Corp reckons that there is more than enough demand to make it worthwhile to offer a home video system that enables users to see each other on standard television sets during a telephone conversation. The C- Phone Home system is a self-contained television set-top box operated by wireless remote control and microphone, and connects to the television like a video cassette recorder. A video call can be dialed or answered via the C-Phone Home handheld remote control, which also enables the user to operate the system by scrolling through on-screen text menus. The C-Phone Home system costs $350 – each end, presumably – plus a monthly video network subscription fee of $20. C-Phone says that it will start shipping the C-Phone Home unit to consumer electronic stores US-wide over the next few months.
