Video Call Camera for select 2014-2013 LG Smart TVs

  • AN-VC500

Key Features

  • 1920 x 1280 max resolution

Full HD 1080p Skype Camera

Full HD 1080p Skype Camera

Do you use Skype™? With LG you have the capability to make video and voice calls over the Internet in Full HD 1080p resolution on your LG Smart TV*. No more cumbersome experience of sitting in front of a laptop or looking at the tiny smartphone screen.

With the LG Video Call Camera, staying in touch with loved ones or conducting business via video conferencing is made more convenient (and fun!) than ever. The camera also features 2 built-in microphones for enhanced sound quality and smart Zoom function which allows for zooming on a desired location.

Installing the Skype™ Call TV Camera on your LG Smart TV is quick and easy so you can get started connecting to friends, family or business partners in beautiful 1920 x 1280 max resolution on the big TV screen right away.

*Internet connection required & sold separately.



The picture and sound quality is excellent for both you and whoever you are on a call with. Other thoughtful touches include a zoom feature that enables you to set the best picture as your default and then also allows you to zoom in and out on different areas easily while on a call (for example, to tighten the shot on whoever is speaking at your end). Overall I really love this product. It's well designed and great to use.

Pros: Performance, Style/Design, easy to use, Features/Settings, Quality

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Skype LG camera What is a great Media Room with out being able to communicate with your family? That was what I thought when I bought my big screen TV , and I was ready to set it up with a Seven-Two Receiver. I started searching for one, but all of them were expensive, or didn't have the features that I was looking for. At the time I didn't know that LG had one. I was checking one day on their products on their Website and...surprise! They had their own.Checked prices everywhere, and they had the best. It is a 1080 definition, with three step digital zoom. After I set it up, I found out that not only the image, but the camera itself looked great, on top of my TV, being held there by its magnetic base. I recommend this product to whoever has a TV that can be set with this camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Aging Parents Despite the cost this camera is worth every penny. I purchased the camera for my parents. They live in the U.S. and I am stationed in South Korea. My parents love it. The camera is plug and play and old people friendly. Thank you LG.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great video camera for families This video camera is a great addition to an LG Smart TV. It allows video calls from Skype, and the zoom lens makes it so you can either include the whole family, or zoom in on one person. One thing to note is that when at 1x zoom (wide angle) the recipient device may display the wide picture on a vertical display, which causes a small picture with black top and bottom bands. Best viewing is on a horizontal display. Other devices may clip the extra video width. The camera does remember the last zoom setting it was used in, and reverts to that setting on next startup. The clarity of the picture is fantastic, as long as you remember to remove the plastic protection film when you receive it (something I didn't do). I find the mic pics up well, and I have our sofa and TV/Camera about 10' apart. It is a bit spendy for a video camera, but the price is not so high I would avoid the camera.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but not functional and expensive Video and Audio quality is good but value is extremely high for a simple web-cam. Also no ringtone for an incoming skype call; and no notification when you have a missed call. I don't know if it's a hardware shortcoming but this hardware is supposed to be used with a Skype app; and the fault can be counted for both. if you will only use for calling but not expecting to receive calls, then I would recommend. But too much value for a simple camera with missing functions

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice to use for Skype with grandchilderen We have a LG Smart TV we purchased over a year ago. We had been using Skype with our PC to visit with our grandchildren. This unit is a dramatic upgrade from the PC. Nice to see them on the big (55 inch) screen. Very happy with both products.

do I need a paid subscription for Skype to use this?

Asked by: mikecab
We appreciate your interest in this Video Call Camera. The ability to utilize a Skype function will depend upon the compatibility of the product to the application. This will generally be related to the television itself, rather than with the camera.

Asked by: Ceos 2511
I apologize, but no; the new OLED televisions do not have a Skype capability, nor will they be compatible with any of the Video Call cameras.

Every time I use this camera it switches off my external sound system and use the internal TV speakers. It took me a little while to realize what was going on. Is there going to be a software patch in the future to fix the issue?

Whenever I use this camera, it messes with my configuration settings. The camera changes sound output configuration from my external speakers to the TV internal speakers. Is there a way I can prevent the camera from changing my configuration settings?
