Logitech Launches $199 Skype HD Camera
(August 6, 2012)
-- Logitech and Skype have teamed to launch the Logitech TV Cam
HD, a 720p High-Definition TV camera with built-in Skype
capability that can operate on any HDTV with HDMI input.
The camera, which retails for $199, is expected to be available later this month. Logitech.com is now taking pre-orders for the device.
Logitech says that with Wi-Fi built-in, the camera will require no additional software or computer to make phone connections. The company says the TV Cam will allow you to call anyone using Skype on any platform, including smartphones, tablets, HDTVs or computers.
You can also use Skype on the Logitech TV Cam HD to call landline or mobile numbers using Skype Credit or calling subscription.
“Because of the size of the TV screen and the quality of the video, the new Logitech TV Cam HD with Skype brings a whole new social element to the living room, helping you feel like your family and friends are right there with you. It’s a transformative experience," says Joerg Tewes, vice president of Logitech's digital home business group.
