GREAT ADDITION TO OUR LIVING ROOM

GREAT ADDITION TO OUR LIVING ROOM

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

What People Are Saying

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 35 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. July 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. May 31, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by easy to setup Workslike a charm...fun, useful, super pic and sound. May 2, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by A lot of fun This is a pretty good camera for using skype. It provides a nice clear picture. April 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. March 25, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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 March 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 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. February 23, 2015

Answer: 
Having your TV tell you is the most reliable method.

First, check the Settings on your TV and make sure it has the latest software update. Next, open the Skype application. It will display an error message telling you that a camera is not connected and informing you what model(s) of camera will work.

When I first got my LG Smart TV it just said the AN-VC400, then after a software update it said either the AV-VC400 or the AN-VC500.
