Skype Conference Room Setup

Hello Everyone,

I'm looking for some advice on a Skype Setup which will allow our three locations to attend meetings together. I have seen quite a few skype-enabled tv's and am wondering if these are capable of the 3-way video conferencing that Skype 5.0 and later is capable of? I can't seem to find information on this online.

Also, does anyone have any recommendations on a TV/webcam combination that might work. We have 10mbps down/ 3mbps up.

I have had something like this recently. You're right about limited info on this matter.
What I ended up doing was making a computer for just conferencing and putting Skype on it. Then buying a pair of desk mics for improved communications. Using just any webcam and 50" Sharp tv, I set the computer to HDMI to work with what I got. Did the same for the other 2 offices. Skype has a conference feature that you can call office A and then call office B by hitting that button. We have about the same 10mb/s connection as you, and the offices are about 45min-1hour drive away.
Here is a list of exactly what I went with:

This plus a computer we had extra around the office. Added a graphics card with a HDMI output. Reason I went this route is because it was cheap and if we wanted to go with a specialist, we could always use the tv for cable/news/business related programs...and the olympics...
