SAN JOSE, Calif., April 23, 2013 — Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. has signed a multiyear license agreement with DigitalOptics Corp. (DOC), a wholly owned subsidiary of Tessera Technologies Inc., to use DOC’s Face Detection and Face Tracking software in Samsung Galaxy S 4 smartphones.

The software, compatible with all application processors, is part of DOC’s FaceTools suite, which also includes Accurate Eye Tracking and Face Recognition, Smile and Blink Detection. With FaceTools, users can automatically identify individuals, capture fast-moving objects, use enhanced user interfaces via real-time pupil tracking and take pictures under suboptimum light or color balance conditions.

The suite also is a key capability in the company’s mems | cam mobile camera module, which it launched in February at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.

“By combining our MEMS technology with our real-time custom hardware blocks and application software, we believe we have all of the capabilities to bring exceptional, professional-quality still and video imaging and applications to mobile devices,” said John Thode, president of DOC.
