Velvis is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Really good quality Skype camera?

I have a client who has been connecting his laptop to a HDTV and using the laptops built in webcam, but has been unhappy with the video quality.

They would like to add a higher quality webcam to the top of the TV (but still use the laptop for the connection, as this TV is older and doesnt have any built in apps or internet connectivity built in).

Is there a webcam that will provide a significant quality boost over the built in webcam on the laptop? Perhaps with a microphone as well?

Any recommendations?

Thanks.

I've always had good luck with Logitech webcams. I suggest you visit their website and see if anything on there looks like it's in the customer's price range.

The Logitech Pro 9000 works great with Skype. Skype recognises it and goes into HD mode. The quality is quite good if you've got good bandwidth.
