Thanks for your question. You'll need to buy the Samsung VG-STC2000 Skype TV Camera. You can find it at many online retailers.

Hope that helps!

HD Tech,

Thanks for your reply and hopeful that the camera would be available in Qatar.

also, please let me know how can I connect a microphone to the tv to speak in skype. I could find only one socket for the earphone and not for the mic.

Thanks in advance

The camera has it built-in. Also, I thought you meant you had a UN40EH5300. I suppose you have a UA40EH5300R, right? The accessories may be different. Here's a link here to support for this product in your country:

Thanks for your question. The documentation I have states that the VG-STC3000 is supported by the ES6100 and above for 2012 LED models. However, that's all I can for certain. Will I say the the EH5300 is not supported? No, I won't. So if you feel like buying it and trying it out, feel free, but I cannot promise that it'll work.
