Any one know how or if the new 8961 will handle video?  

Doesn't appear to be a USB port for the new camera like the 9951/9971.  The documentation I've reviewed does not mention video for the 8961.  VT Advantage 2.2 data sheet mentions the 6900 series phone, but not the 8961.

From my understanding, the 8961 will do video streaming but not video conferencing (or point-to-point video calls).

If that's true that 8961 does not do video calls, I have to question the thinking of Cisco.  There's little chance of my buying a phone that does not do video calls. How difficult is it to have a phone at least work with VT Advantage?

I wonder what their thinking was.  We will be staying with the 796x series for standard users.
