Video chats over the Apple TV work just fine (assuming the network has reasonable bandwidth). We use the TV screen in the kitchen for facetime chats with my youngest son at university, iOS device and AirPlay required (you can't use a webcam)

Okay, thanks for the answers so far. This is where I am confused. I would like the tv to utilize its built in video camera and mic...so that once I push my screen to the tv through the Apple TV the tv effectively takes over the video, audio etc.
Does that make sense...and is it possible?

airplay mirror is a 1 way push of what is shown on the device
no commication from the tv goes back so the webcam working is off the table
but you could connect a webcam to the mac my imac works perfectly fine with both it's internal webcam and my old logitech usb webcam can chooses which one I use
with a long cable it could be placed on top of the tv
