Hot from the studio is this sneak preview of Panasonic’s latest TV ad, featuring the built-in Skype app and webcam. How many of you have grandparents like these?
I have a PS3, my parents have a PS3, my children have a PS3.
NONE of us will be upgrading our telly’s any time soon. A PS3 client for Skype is almost obligatory. Failure to bring one out is becoming deliberate negligence. Why is it such a struggle? Who’s paying you off?
Indeed, duncan is absolutely right, this is taking way too long. Who cares for one particular TV? We all already have TVs and won’t replace them just because of this feature. I can’t wait for Google’s alternative on PS3 and then it will be Skype ditching time – it goes off all our computers. So, Skype, get your act together if you want to stay in the game. We’ve been waiting for this feature on PS3 for years because we need it in the living room and just putting it on one TV doesn’t do the trick.
maybe some other tech company fill in the gap. Do I hear google?
come on Skype. you need to built this feature ASAP.
What I don’t understand is the cost of these (exclusive to TV brand) camera’s.
FREETALK® TV Camera for Samsung TVs from $149.99??? Panasonic Communication Camera TY-CC10W for Panasonic TVs from $169.95???
For that kind of money, these cameras should not only pan and zoom with the use of a remote, it should jump off the TV and follow you around the house while you are Skyping!
If Apple can insert a great resolution camera in their laptops – then so can all these TV manufacturers without fleecing us consumers. The reason most of these concepts don’t ‘catch’ from the beginning (like web TV in the 90′s), was because manufacturers were too greedy from the onset, and simply never bothered to ask the consumer what they wanted. They just went with ‘test subjects’ in other countries.
