CES, Las Vegas – January 9, 2012 – For its cutting-edge design and innovation in the marketplace, Biscotti - the world’s first high-definition TV phone - has received the prestigious distinction of International CES Innovations 2012 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree.

Biscotti TV Phone, which will be shown at International CES 2012, is a single device that sits discreetly atop a TV and allows users to make high-definition calls to anyone, anywhere in the world using only their HDTV and Wi-Fi. Biscotti can make free calls to other Biscotti, and to any computer, iPhone, iPad or Android device supporting Google video chat, including Gmail and Google Apps accounts. Thanks to Biscotti’s unique ability to pass through video from cable or satellite boxes, users can receive calls while watching TV – all without the need to switch inputs.

“Biscotti is designed for people who value real-life, personal interaction. It’s a single-purpose, dedicated TV Phone that’s always ready to connect, so you can make and receive calls without interrupting your lifestyle,” said Dr. Matthew B. Shoemake, Biscotti’s CEO and Founder. “HDTVs are selling faster than any other consumer electronics product on the market, fueling the demand for high definition video calling. By 2015, we’re predicting 25% of homes will be making high-definition video calls daily.”

Biscotti TV Phone connects to HDTVs via HDMI cable. Initial set-up takes minutes, during which users customize their personal profile, creating a unique Biscotti ID and inviting Biscotti and Google contacts to chat.  Once connected to Wi-Fi, Biscotti is always ready to instantly make calls, notifying users of incoming calls while they are watching TV via a pop-up message on screen, or if no one is home, turning the TV on/off for each incoming call (compatible TVs only).  Users can also designate specific contacts that will cause the TV to automatically answer, a great feature for home security or ensuring you can always reach someone.

Biscotti TV Phone is now available for just $199. To learn more, visit www.biscotti.com and watch videos at www.youtube.com/biscottitv. Follow Biscotti on www.facebook.com/biscottitv and on Twitter @BiscottiTV.
