Face-Tracking Technology Licensed to Camera Maker
SAN JOSE, Calif., April 25, 2012 — DigitalOptics Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of Tessera Technologies Inc., announced that it has licensed its Face Tracker technology to Cammsys Co. Ltd., a camera module maker focused on the mobile phone market.
The company’s face-tracking technology enables cameras to automatically adjust focus, color and exposure settings, optimizing portraits even in the most challenging conditions. Using face-oriented algorithms, the technology instantly detects faces in a camera viewfinder and tracks them moving through the image if the camera is rotated or subjects shift their poses. It also incorporates an advanced tracking algorithm to lock and anticipate face-position changes, allowing for high-quality photography when the subject is in motion.
“Cammsys is the latest in a series of camera module makers to adopt our market-leading image-enhancement technology, through its license of our DigitalOptics Face Tracker technology,” said Dr. Bob Roohparvar, president.
