          I bought this to hook up to my Panasonic Blue-Ray and TV. Skype did not have video. Took 3 days calling Panasonic and then Samsung to try to get a fix. They kinow there is a problem but instead of sending you a Webcam that works you have to keep after them with promises of e-mail and call backs that do not happen. Finally after days of calling I got a fix but the quality and video is not good. Would not reccomend and after the customer service will not go to Panasonic again

                  Comments about FREETALK Conference HD Camera For Skype Ready Panasonic TVs And Blurays:

                  I received this camera a part of a TV promotion bundle about a year ago and overall I am impressed. When I first set up the TV and camera the video would only work with Skype running on a PC. As of last fall Skype updated their Mac software so now the video works as well as the audio. I really like the fact that I can see when the TV is on while I am looking at Skype. As I travel to Asia frequently this is a great way for me to talk with my family at no cost. The video quality is acceptable and the audio is remarkable given people are so far from the mic. We have this TV and camera set up in our bedroom where the lighting isn't always great and still the camera is very clear. I am not sure about the other reviewers who seem unhappy but when plugged directly into a Panasonic TV and connected to a fast network it's easy to use and works well.

                    If you intened to video chat using a skype certified panasonic blu-ray player, don't buy this product. I can't believe that a Skype certified webcam would not be compatible with a panasonic skype certified blu-ray player. This is a common problem found on the skype website and panasonic website. Do your research and don't buy this if you intend to use this for video skype calls on a blu-ray player. (It does; however, work for a pc).

                      I purchased the combination of the BDT110 BluRay Player and the Talk 7181 camera. The camera picks up audio but no video. I later discovered that this is a widespread problem:http://community.skype.com/t5/Video/Panasonic-BDT210-and-Freetalk-TALK-7181-no-video-output/td-p/365935It's possible that a firmware update will fix the problem, but customer support has provided no help.

                        I bought this to work with my Panasonic Blu-Ray which included Skype - this was the simpliest thing I ever hooked up. I already had a Skype account (would have been hard to do using remote from the Blu-Ray) and basically plugged it in to the Blu Ray, clicked on Skype and that was that. Worked great, people at other end of the Skype thought my images were extremely HD and the auto focus worked flawlessly.

                              Panasonic gave Abt erroneous information regarding the compatibility of this HD camera for Panasonic TVs. In reality, this HD camera will only work with 2011 Panasonic TVs, but NOT for the 2010 models. I didn't find this out until I got the camera in the mail and attempted to get it to work with my Panasonic plasma TV. When I called Panasonic's customer service department, they were adamant that this camera would work and that it was in fact the only replacement for their own Panasonic brand camera, which was discontinued and is no longer available. Frustrated with Panasonic's response[...] the FreeTalk HD camera will only work with 2011 models. It's a problem that Panasonic is aware of, but so far they have not decided what to do for those customers that own 2010 models. They're actually contemplating bringing back their own Panasonic brand camera for customers who 2010 Panasonic TVs. It sure would be nice if Panasonic's own customer service representatives were made aware of this information. [...] Panasonic should take a lesson [...] regarding "customer service" and "the importance of disseminating accurate information" for customers.
