Chinese consumer electronics manufacturer Skyworth Digital Holdings (0751.HK) has launched an Internet-based video-calling product, Coco Chat TV, in partnership with Intel. Coco Chat TV allows users to communicate TV-to-TV or TV-to-PC.
Skyworth plans to release both LCD and LED series of Coco TV sets, including 32" and 55" models.
Yang Dongwen, Skyworth VP and head of the TV set business, said Coco TV sets will be available on the market in April, beginning in coastal markets such as Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen. Yang added that the Coco Chat client will adopt a free model similar to QQ rather than charge users.
