Skype to offer HD video calling on some TVs
Wednesday 06 January 2010
Skype says its voice and video calling technology will be embedded in upcoming high-definition televisions with internet capabilities.
Skype said Tuesday that its internet phone service will be included in Panasonic's 2010 VIERA CAST-enabled HD TVs and LG's new LCD and plasma HD TVs with NetCast Entertainment Access. The televisions are expected to be available in the middle of the year.
LG and Panasonic will sell webcams that support the 720p high-definition format and are meant for making video calls with the televisions.
Skype, which eBay sold to an investor group in November, offers free voice and video calls to other Skype users, and charges for calls to cell or landline phones.
