Sony is bringing to the market their first HD video-conferencing solution called the Ipela next month. It’s very expensive and targetted to the enterprise, but it’s really cool and probably one of the highest quality HD video-conferencing solutions out there with the LifeSize and Talk and Vision solutions. I asked the Sony representative when it would become possible to do HD video-conferencing using the Sony PS3 and probably something like a cheap sub-100-dollar 720p or 1080p webcam, but he didn’t have any exclusive informations to give about such consumer oriented HD video-conferencing solution yet. Sony probably doesn’t want to cannibalize their own new product category by releasing a cheap HD videoconferencing solution using the PS3. HD video-conferencing is totally awesome, the next best thing to being there with the other person. One day very soon hopefully we will all have direct HD video-conferencing connections to our families with a small HD webcam to put on our chea HDTVs.
