When you are looking to find a great VoIP phone, as a consumer you will find that the Iris video phone is a great option to turn to when making the purchase. Not only are you going to get a 7 inch monitor to view the people you are making the calls to, but it also features a great quality CMOS camera, it has an idle- time photo frame feature, and has a standard phone jack connection, allowing you to plug it in to any wall outlet at the home, in the office, or anywhere else you plan on putting the VoIP phone to use.
Your Iris video phone is going to get connected using a high speed DSL or cable connection with your service provider, and will then connect to the worldwide telephone systems, depending on which company you subscribe to for landline services. For those who choose this great quality phone, you can also choose to set it up as a digital photo frame, when you are not calling anyone or using the device, by using an SD memory card, or a USB thumb drive, in order to get the desired images on to the phone. The Iris video phone also comes built in with a phone adapter, allowing you as the owner to connect it to an audio only or digital phone setting, allowing you to get service with the phone anywhere in the house.
If you would like to video chat with family overseas, or with friends, you also get the RCA outputs, allowing you to connect the Iris video phone to a larger platform, like the big screen in the living room, and allow a few people to chat with the family member or friend who is on the receiving end of the call. So, whether you want to use the built in 7 inch screen, or whether you choose to connect your Iris video phone to a larger platform, whether it is the big screen or a computer monitor, you are going to be able to get a clear image, and great sound and call quality, no matter where you are calling to, who you are contacting on the other end, or where the call is being made to or from.
The only requirements for you to be able to connect your Iris video phone in the home is that you have a broadband connection (from DSL, to a cable connection, to a fiber optic connection), and at least 256 Kbs speed, in order for the phone to be able to run and get the greatest call quality on the opposite end of the line.
