Warning-This is not compatible with Samsung Smart TVs
21 December 2012
Summary: This camera cost just over a hundred bucks including shipping and despite being widely described as a TV Webcam for smart TV's IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH SAMSUNG. Do not make the same mistake I did and order one thinking any USB webcam will work with any smart tv..They arent that smart yet.
Summary: I bought a Panasonic Blu Ray Player specifically because of its alleged Skype capabilities. Then I discovered that, while the player has a standard USB port and I have multiple high-quality USB cameras, only the overpriced and over-rated Panasonic Skype camera is compatible. So I took a deep breath and parted with the extra bucks, only to learn that the Panasonic/Skype system apparently doesn't work, or works only with other Panasonic/Skype account holders (not regular...
Summary: What I thought would be a cool accessory for my Panasonic TV (TC-P50G25 Plasma) is the ability to make internet video calls with the Panasonic Skype Enabled Communication Camera # TY-CC10W, if you can get it work! Because of the fact that the USB ports (Panasonic design flaw) are only 1/8th inch apart and you need the Panasonic Wireless LAN Adapter #DY-WL-10 (which is about an inch thick) to connect to your network, in order to plug in the camera you will need some sort...
Summary: Unfortunately this camera only works if your Skype contact has excellent broadband and a very fast computer or Viera internet connected TV (with the same). Otherwise it doesn't work and it generally sucks.
Does not work with Audio Return Channel or Optical Audio Out

Summary: If you've paid the money for one of Panasonic's high end TV's, you're probably not listening to it with the built in speaker. Unfortunately, Skype assumes you use the built in speaker or have an analog amp connected to your TV. I have the Panasonic SC-HTB10 sound bar. When a call connects the sound bar turns off, and you cannot hear anything. As soon as the call ends, the speaker turns on again. I called Panasonic, hoping there would be a work around.
Summary: One star is way too charitable a rating for this unusable product, not to mention Panasonic's horrifically bad technical support. I have so far called them 3 times for this, and submitted a web help request, and only on the 3rd call (never heard back from web support) actually found someone who had even heard of the TY-CC10W Panasonic camera, OR even Skype.
Summary: Just wanted to let everyone know some of the limitations of this device at the date I'm writing this review: This Camera attached to a 2010 Panasonic G or VT series TV will display on the following clients: Macintosh - No Video will be allowed between either host Linux - No Video will be allowed between either host Windows - Running only version 4.2 at this time your Panasonic TV will send a maximum 680 x 480 video.
