That is cool! May be we could get that in our office ;)

Biscotti video conferencing camera puts Grandma on your TV for $199

We've seen plen­ty of failed home video con­fer­enc­ing cam­eras ideas come and go, but that sad his­to­ry hasn't deterred Bis­cot­ti — the start­up just announced a $199 video cam­era that sits on top of your TV and can call both other Bis­cot­ti units as well as phones, tablets, and PCs using Google Talk. The cam­era itself is fair­ly clever: it sits between your TV and cable box's HDMI con­nec­tion, allow­ing it to over­lay its menus and UI on top of what­ev­er you're watch­ing. You can also set it to auto-answer calls and even auto­mat­i­cal­ly turn on your com­po­nents using HDMI-CEC con­trol, so it's fair­ly par­ent- and grandparent-friendly. We got a brief chance to play with it and the menus and inter­face seemed well-thought-out and com­plete, but we'll wait to com­ment on video qual­i­ty when we actu­al­ly get a review unit.

Having good quality cameras is very much necessary for clear videos. Placing the camera in proper position plays an important role in how much area gets focused. Good Video conferencing software can make us sense the happiness only when good quality cameras are used.
