CES 2012: Samsung inTouch Turns Any HDTV Into a Video Camera

Las Vegas (January 10, 2012) – At the Consumer Electronics Show 2012 (CES 2012) in Las Vegas, Samsung showcased it’s Samsung inTouch Smart TV camera system that turns any ordinary TV into a Smart TV. The camera can be placed on top of any HDTV set and connected via one HDMI cable or via Wi-Fi technology which connects to your WiFi (N/G/N) network to reduce cable clutter. This self-contained Skype device is fully equipped with a webcam, microphone, speaker, and internal software to make Skype calls along with a host of pre-configured web applications.

How the Samsung inTouch turns your ordinary HDTV into a Smart TV is by enabling you to do things like Skype conferencing directly from your HDTV without tethering into a PC. It also has a YouTube application and full web browsing capability. The Samsung inTouch comes with a full QWERTY keyboard and quick-buttons to connect to Skype functionality.


“While internet connected HDTVs are now common, not every household gets to experience this fun and interactive feature, especially if they have an HDTV purchased just a few years ago,” said Mike Palazzolo, a Samsung vice president for sales and marketing. “With the inTouch camera system, Samsung is now bridging the gap between this experience and those consumers who own HDTVs without networking capability.”
as explained in the video below.

One really cool feature are the photo apps which turn your HDTV into a high-definition picture frame. The camera has an adjustable tilt range of 30 degrees – 0 degrees so everyone can be included in the shot. The Samsung inTouch will be available in April for about $199.
