Compatibility: SHARP lc-60c7450u and Freetalk Conference Camera

I've recently purchased a SHARP LC-60C7450U television (http://www.amazon.com/Sharp-Aquos-LC60C7450U-60-Inch-LED-LCD/dp/B007GF61AK), and am interested in purchasing a USB webcam for Skype-based video conferencing.

 

My research suggests that the Freetalk Conference Camera for SHARP TVs (http://shop.skype.com/webcams/tvwebcams/iss-talk-7191-s/) should work with my Sharp TV, but some reviews show incompatibility issues.

 

Does anyone have experience with this combination of hardware, particularly when using the wired connection on the TV?

I just bought a Sharp 70" 857U smart TV.  I bought the Freetalk camera for Sharp TVs.  The Sharp camera works on the TV, however beware that there is no zoom on the camera.  Our 70" TV is about 12' away and the lack of zoom makes us appear far away.  The new firmware with Sharp also has a bug and Skype doesn't work properly anymore for us.  I paid $140 for the camera but would have paid more for a zoom feature.
