Make Skype calls on your TV with Tely HD Video Transcript
Hi, I'm Brigitte Carey with CNET and we're here at the consumer electronic show 2012 at the first little stage giving a first look at the (tele?) HD. This is a device that will turn your television into a Skype video chatting service. It's just a device you stick on top and all you need is a Skype service and an Internet connection, a home Wi-Fi and essentially you could just start shutting right away from the ease of your couch or if you're a small business owner or business professional, you can certainly also use it for that too. It just came out. It is now selling on Amazon for $250. Now, the very first version of this product will let you have Skype calls and you'll be able to do it in different ways. You'll be able to change the picture and picture you can have 2 people talking, be able to look at photos or even watch a television show at the same time over the air updates will allow it to have more Android apps on there. So essentially, you can have gaming on there. The device itself on top has 4 more microphones. So that way when on the couch, you can really make a (cone?) of sound to get... be able to hear you from far away and the camera here is 720p HD and (if you're paranoid about?) the camera being on there, well, there's a little slot you could just shut it when you don't wanna use it. And if you're not home, the (tele HD?) will save a video message from wherever you missed the call from so that's pretty handy. Now, on the back of the (tele HD?), you have an SD card slot which lets you send whatever photos are on that card slot to the person you have in Skype conversation with. And they get the full original quality of that photo send to them. So if you went on vacation and you wanna send some photos to a loved one, just stick in the SD card slot and they can get those photos to them. There's also a USB port to do the same thing on a USB dongle. There is an Ethernet core here so even if you don't have home Wi-fi you could just hook it up to the Internet through the core and there's also an HD in (??) so that way you can get 720p HD connection. We're seeing a few products come out in CES that have a video camera for a television and then makes a pretty easy to do couch casting so you can see that it not only makes it easy for a family to talk to their family or loved one but it can be some creative uses in here for people who wanna do their own web shows for only $250. The equipment is pretty easy to set that up. So they're really making easier and cheaper for you to be able to connect on a web cam on a larger screen. For CNET, I'm Brigitte Carey with your 1st look at the (Tele HD?).
