Skype through your TV

Ready set, phone

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Panasonic today debuted Skype functionality for a range of HDTVs.

Originally announced in January, Skype is now incorporated into Panasonic's VIERA CAST, a feature allowing users to access online content.

To use the Skype function, consumers must first purchase a separate proprietary HD camera. Spend £130 and you too can make "free" calls from the comfort of your settee.

Specially designed for Panasonic TVs, the TY-CC10W HD Communication Camera broadcasts 720p and picks up audio from sofa distance.
