Logitech TV Cam for Skype offers Video Calling on 2011 Skype-Enabled Panasonic VIERA HDTVs from the comfort of your couch
Taking another step toward making a video call from the comfort of your couch, Logitech today announced the Logitech TV Cam for Skype, a plug-and-play TV camera that lets you make and receive high-definition video calls directly from select 2011 Panasonic VIERA Connect-enabled VIERA HDTVs that feature Skype. The Logitech TV Cam for Skype offers crisp, clear images – thanks in part to Carl Zeiss optics and Logitech Fluid Crystal Technology – delivering video color and clarity that consumers have come to expect from Logitech webcams and TV Cams. The Logitech TV Cam for Skype also provides a 78-degree wide-angle lens, and two digital, directional microphones that help reduce noise and echoes – perfect for making a video couch call with the whole family.
Once the Logitech TV Cam for Skype is plugged in, you can make TV-to-TV Skype calls, as well as TV-to-PC or Mac calls and vice versa. You can also make video calls from the Logitech TV Cam for Skype to select iPhone™ and smartphones with Skype mobile. The Logitech TV Cam for Skype is expected to be available beginning May 2011 in the U.S for approximately $$149.99.
