Panasonic puts Skype on Blu-ray

Panasonic and Skype today announced that Skype Voice & Video calling will be added to all new 2011 Viera CAST-enabled Panasonic Blu-Ray players.

Skype, which already has a partnership deal with Panasonic to bring video and voice calling to Panasonic HDTVs via an external HD camera will now extend this ecosystem a little further.

Apparently, it does support sending and receiving video, so it sports 4 USB ports for webcams. This new feature will be available on 2011 Panasonic VIERA CAST-enabled Blu-ray Disc players.
