Logitech’s TV Skype Cam to Work with Panasonic Connected TVs

         


The first tangible result of Panasonic’s decision to open its Viera Connect TV platform to outside developers is the Logitech TV Cam for Skype ($149), available in May. The high-def (720p) video camera with microphones capable of picking up conversation from sofa sitters ten feet away plugs into a USB port on one of 21 new Panasonic TV models.

The Logitech TV Cam for Skype voice and video calling means that owners of Panasonic’s Viera Connect TVs no longer have to depend exclusively on Panasonic’s Skype Enabled Communication Camera (TY-CC10W).

Though other USB-attachable webcams, including ones from Logitech, have been available all along, they’re meant for computer use. Installing driver software isn’t possible on a TV set.

Because the driver software is preinstalled by Panasonic, users should experience plug-and-play simplicity. Once you log onto your Skype HD account, you’ll be able to start video calling.

The Logitech TV Cam for Skype uses a 2MP autofocus Carl Zeiss lens. With its 78-degree-wide angle, the lens can accommodate a family on a couch. However, if one person wants to dominate the frame, he or she can lean in and stay focused as close as 2.8 inches from the camera lens. (Queue the new baby.)  Two unidirectional microphones flank the camera, and processing is built in to reduce noise and echoes.

The camera, attached to a TV with a broadband connection, facilitates TV-to-TV Skype calls or TV-to-PC or Mac calls as well as calls from Skype-enabled TVs and computers.

Hi Vincent -

The Logitech camera only supports Panasonic USA models. Panasonic India claims that your TV model is Skype compatible, but does not offer any compatible accessories. I suggest contacting Panasonic India for technical support regarding this product.

Good afternoon, I have a Panasonic 60" TV TC60AS540 and I have a Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 for Skype use.

I thought I could just connect via USB connection and it will work. As soon as Skype comes on it says that it doesn't detect a camera.

What should I do?
