Panasonic and Skype today announced a collaboration that will enable consumers to make voice and video calls over Skype on Panasonic's line of 2010 VIERA CAST-enabled HDTVs planned for launch in spring 2010.
LG also stroke a partnership with Skype and will release LG NetCast TVs with Skype this year as well.

Skype on your VIERA delivers many familiar Skype features including:

  • Free Skype-to-Skype voice and video calls
  • Calls to landline or mobile phone at Skype’s low rates
  • The option to receive inbound calls via a user’s online Skype number
  • Skype voicemail, if you have it set up
  • Being invited to participate in voice conference calls with up to 24 other parties
To conduct a Skype video call on a VIERA CAST HDTV, a specially-designed high-performance Panasonic camera, which is sold as a separate accessory, is simply plugged into the television. The camera includes a special microphone system that can easily pick up sound from couch-distance. Plus, it will deliver up to 720p high definition video quality depending on the consumer’s internet bandwidth.
