Skype TV in India by Panasonic, Samsung, Sony (Skype Ready)

Video calling was never so interesting. We have experienced the video calling through our computer, then we tried face to face calls with our tablet and then last was smartphone (iPhone/Android/Nokia/Windows..). The pattern was that the device was getting smaller and so was the screen size.

I understand that since it is getting more portable, video calling was more convenient. But was it more enjoyable, was the experience getting better. The answer is No. So how could your video calling be enhanced, and many people said "Video Calls via Television or on projector screen". This is something not new (as we have already seen many companies having the facility at their offices for video conferencing), but it has been quite expensive and not a home solution.

As the technology is advancing, we have now smart television which are capable of offering you an amazing video calling experience. Conceptually what you require is just a camera, internet and some software code in your TV so that it can offer you video calls. Infact we already have this feature in the market, giving Skype Video calls on TV. Yes, in India as well.

Today we will explore some television's and their price in India, which offer the Skype Video Calling Facility. Off course buying the Skype ready TV is not the only solution for video calls. There are some other solutions as well like connecting iPad to TV, buying a Skype Box, connecting web cam and some devices to tv for video calls, connecting your PC to your television, etc etc..

Please note that though these TV's are Skype ready, but these may/may not have Webcam and Mic in them. These needs to be purchased separately. These cost approx Rs 5000 (for camera ad Mic), which should not hurt you much as it will be a great video calling experience.
