Skype on TV Now, Collaboration with Panasonic and LG

27 10 2011

Skype with the collaboration of Panasonic and LG announced their upcoming technology in International Consumer Electronic Show at Las Vegas, 2010. Now Skype will be available on Panasonic and LG TVs for voice and video communication with more comfort.

Skype has been the leader of online communication on internet. It exceeded quality and standards of internet communication with its increasing users. It left the Yahoo behind for the voice and video call standards in a few time. Seeing its popularity on computer and mobiles, Skype embedded this software available at HD TVs connected to internet with a bigger screen.

Skype will come installed on the Panasonic and LG Televisions by default. Now users can enjoy all the Skype’s features on their TV screen with more comfort and fun. Skype offers its users to:

  1. Make voice and video calls to other Skype users.
  2. Receive voice and video calls from other Skype friend’s Skype online numbers.
  3. Make calls on the landline and mobile of the friends with Skype’s low call rates like before.
  4. Send a voice mail to other Skype users.
  5. Enjoy voice conferences with 2 to 24 Skype parties simultaneously.
  6. Capture images from your live video call.

But the Skype on TV is coming with more innovations. It is as easy to use as from your computer but offers more fun. It is expected to come with a TV-ready webcam which is specially designed to work with Skype TV. This webcam holds microphone. Once you sign-in to Skype acount and attach this specially-developed webcam with your Skype TV, you just have a sofa and make/receive calls from your friends sitting at any distance. You don’t need to come close to the microphone or shout loudly like a traditional voice call sources. Voice and image quality is higher than before. This collaboration of Skype with Panasonic and LG is going to provide the users with hands-free and smooth voice and video calls while sitting at their living room.

Skype TV technology is expected to be coming in spring of 2010. I hope it will earn good response and market share, especially with Skype users.
