Panasonic shows Skype-compatible webcam for HDTVs

After announcing Panasonic and LG will build Skype-compatible HDTVs in January, Panasonic has now introduced an add-on webcam that lets users hold video calls using Skype. The TY-CC10W web camera will be compatible with certain VIERA HDTVs. It will plug into a USB 2.0 port of a set with the latest firmware installed and enable video chats at up to 720p resolution when logged into a regular Skype account.

The camera has a 1/4 CMOS sensor that has a 56.8-degree coverage and four microphones. In full HD, video comes in H.264 at 22FPS; it reaches a full 30FPS at VGA size.

Panasonic will ship the TY-CC10W in Japan on June 11 for the equivalent of about $194. Plans for a more widespread release have not been revealed. [via Impress]

    great news!

    This is really a great new feature from Panasonic. Imagine, you can now enjoy communicating with your friends and relatives through Skype, in the comfort of your own living room . Most of these should be connected wirelessly via WiFi connection, and having a wireless rotuer in your home can really help. Anyway, speaking of wireless routers, if you're looking for a good one, I recommend you check out the Netgear Wireless Router for Video and Gaming. You can use this device to connect computers, gaming consoles, notebooks, or wireless printers, and also your networked home theater devices. You can also use this to stream video and music from a USB drive to media players and DLNA TV's, even without using a computer. Not that's one powerful wireless router for you.
