Depending on where your TV is located, you can attach the camera to the top of your TV using the included clamp, or you can have the camera rest on a media center under the TV. The important this is that you have the camera near the TV, so that when you're looking at the party you're talking to, the camera captures you looking in their direction.
The clamp that comes with the Camera is very versatile and will allow you to position and attach the camera to a variety of TVs, regardless of their shape and depth. If you have any challenges with this, please don't hesitate to contact our customer support!
