telyHD Video calling system

telyHD is a revolutionary new device that delivers spectacular HD Skype video calling right to your HDTV. Instantly connect with the people you care about no matter how far away they might be; all in beautiful HD quality from the comfort of your couch. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but live HD video says it all.

Skype on your TV

Turn any HDTV into a high-definition video calling system, no computer required. telyHD is an "all-in-one" device that includes an HD camera, four noise-cancelling microphones, and the Skype video calling application. Simply plug it into the HDMI port on your TV and you can call anyone - anywhere in the world, on any Skype enabled device including PCs, tablets, mobile phones and more. telyHD also provides Video Mail, Photo Sharing, and Digital Zoom.

Why telyHD?

telyHD combines the FREE global reach of Skype with the HD video calling capabilities of high end video conferencing systems.

Five top reasons why people choose telyHD

  1. Make video calls from the TV, connects via an HDMI port
  2. Send and receive stunning 720p HD video
  3. No computer required
  4. Affordable, with no monthly fees
  5. Connect with other Skype users on any Skype enabled device (tablet, phone, computer, and more)

How telyHD improves your Skype Experience

All of your Skype contacts are instantly available after set-up. Simply scroll through your contact list and place an HD video call. In addition to making video calls from the couch, telyHD provides a significant improvement over using Skype on a computer based on additional features and functionality such as:

  1. A wide angle lens that can see your whole family on the couch. Web cams are designed for the desk. telyHD is design for the living room.
  2. Four noise-cancelling, beam forming microphones that isolate your conversation from any background noise and provide crystal clear audio.
  3. Digital pan, tilt and zoom allow you to select and focus on a particular area of the image. Want to zoom in on the person talking? No problem!

Video Mail

Video mail is an awesome feature that is available when both the calling and remote parties have a telyHD. Recording a video mail is very similar to recording a voice mail, but a lot more fun!

Photo Sharing

During a tely-to-tely call, you can instantly share images from any SD card or a USB drive. Simply insert the SD card or USB drive into the back of the telyHD and select Photo Sharing from the in-call menu.

Android + NVIDIA

telyHD is built on the Android operating system and a powerful NVIDIA processor. These two technologies will enable future Android based applications such as interactive games, social TV, streaming HD video content, and so much more.


Everything but the hug

A bedtime story. A lost tooth. A shared smile. telyHD brings everyone together to experience life's special moments.

Then, plug the HDMI cable (included) into your TV or AV stereo receiver, and plug in the power adapter to activate the unit. Use Wi-Fi or Ethernet to establish a network connection. Then simply log into Skype using your existing account or create a new account right from the telyHD setup screen. That's it!

1 out of 5 eggsPoor, grainy video in all lighting

Pros: It's nice to have a device that mounts to the TV and provides Skype functionality. Incoming video looks good.

Cons: The camera quality is poor. In all lighting, it was grainy, blurry, and blacks came off blue. I exchanged the first one, hoping it was simply a bad unit but had the exact same issue with the second one. Do not buy.

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this device.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent Skype TV Cam, But Veryu Dependent on Internet Bandwidth

Pros: * Easy configuration
* Ease of use via carousel UI design setup
* Integrated design for use on top of LCD or Plasma TV
* Web browser feature included
* Autoanswer feature available via Skype Privacy settings
* Can import photos to be shown on screen

Cons: * Limited Skype functionality -- still required Skype desktop for contact management, etc
* Does not save Skype Online Status, so when device is restarted, it goes to default (Online)
* Very sensitive to network bandwidth availability and does not seem to be able to support lower bandwidths very well (both video and audio become choppy and even freezes)
* No remote management support, even though this feature was promised "in a year from now", and I had asked two years ago

Other Thoughts: Purchased the TelyHD Base Edition to replace my Logitech Skype TV Cam, which died after 1.5 years of service and Logitech no longer sells and supports the Skype TV Cam. I was able to do Skype HD video conferencing with my 88-year old mother using the Skype TV Cam. However, the TelyHD unit immediately started to pixel-ate and audio became choppy when I replaced the Logitech unit. I made sure the TelyHD was running the latest firmware and all other network settings were the same as before. Had to increase the Internet service to a higher bandwidth tier at the remote end (where the unit was installed) to properly support Skype HD video. Logitech unit did not have this same issue, and I Skyped at least 3 times a week with my Mom.

The other weirdness with the TelyHD was its configuration setup. You can set a wallpaper, but it is not used in a Skype window, just the main carousel menu level. Skype Online Status resets itself to default upon restart. There is no way to turn off features you do not want to use (like web browser), which may be necessary for remote installations.

In my opinion, the Logitech Skype TV Cam was better in core functionality than the TelyHD Base Edition, but the TelyHD has additional features not available in the Logitech unit. Since TelyHD is the only standalone Skype TV unit available, you will have to work with its quirks and limitations.

I think next time I need a Skype TV Cam or TelyHD-like unit, I would first explore using a Windows 8 touchscreen all-in-one PC in kiosk mode running only Skype. At least I can remote manage the unit for my Mom and even have solitaire card game available to play on the touchscreen :-)

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Beautiful picture, depinding on contacts camera. Easy to install. looks well built, high quality cables supplied (and long enough)big step above PC using dinky camera and head set. wonderful audio and video across the room.

Cons: Why I gave 4 stars. I was thinking the built in sd card reader would take and send pics and movies, it does if the other users have this Tely device. Most annoying is this keypad to log on. Is there a way to save logon and password without leaving the Skype connected all the time? Simple manual, more info on web site (both pro and con )

Other Thoughts: Should be a way to use standard keyboard with this device other than switching inputs on tv. I got this device for my wife for her birthday. HAPPY, she calls her family(all over Europe) for hours. Maybe next version will do all I want.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy setup

Pros: Really easy to setup! Works right out of the box. Picture and audio very clear.

Cons: Yes it is expensive but for people who are not technologically astute, this product fits the bill. I got it for my parents.

Remote has limited functionality but it does the job.

Other Thoughts: typing in skype names is tedious but one can add a keyboard.
