“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.

With the inTouch camera system, Samsung is now bridging the gap between this experience and those consumers who own HDTVs without networking capability,” said Mike Palazzolo, Vice President Sales and Marketing, consumer video monitoring and security products, Samsung Techwin America.

“The inTouch camera can be securely placed on top of an HDTV, shelf or table, and thanks to a tilt range of -30 degrees to about 0 degrees, users can easily adjust the camera so that everyone can be in the shot.

The Samsung inTouch offers an effortless connection to a wireless network, and hooking up the camera to an HDTV requires just one HDMI cable,” the company said in a statement.
