PanasonicLG and Panasonic TVs with Skype : The television as we have known it for years has actually not changed that much. All right, the quality has of course improved and it has become bigger and flatter, but that about covers it. With the arrival of 3D content, the experience will become more impressive and more applications will become possible. LG and Panasonic actually extend the television even further. Together with their partner Skype, ‘skyping’ via the television is possible, which is an important step for Skype and its partners. Skype is a hit, and when Skype invested in video a few years ago, they took a risk, a calculated one at that. Will this investment now see its returns?

Internet TV with Skype
Panasonic and LG offer their newest generation Internet televisions with integrated Skype. After lengthy testing in the lab, it is now ready for the general public: Skype via television. The only thing that the consumer has to do now is buy a Skype-ready television and a special TV-ready webcam. These webcams are especially developed for TV and Skype, and equipped with innovative microphones with which it will be possible to communicate while sitting on the couch, without having to shout towards the microphone or sit closer to the television.

Skype video calling via your TV
The LG and Panasonic televisions also allow for HD video calling. Additionally, a minimum of 1Mbs symmetric broadband connection is needed. Lengthy research has been conducted to find out what the consumer likes when making video calls, and especially calls on a big screen with clear images was one of the desires. Therefore, the television was logically offered as a solution. The first Panasonic and LG Skype-ready televisions will be expected to become available in the spring.
