Viseon, Inc.

In December, the VisiFone will be featured on the in-flight video segments on all of the video enabled United Airlines flights around the world. Several technical and cable industry trade publications have also featured the VisiFone recently including MultiChannel News, Cable World, Network World, Communications Engineering and Design, and Communications Technology.
