CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), an innovative solutions provider for media
creativity, is pleased to announce that AMD (NYSE: AMD) has chosen to license
its FaceMe^TM facial recognition technology featured in YouCam, and has
applied this technology to the AMD Face Login application on its upcoming
high-performance A-Series APU platform, “Richland” and its upcoming low-power,
mobility APU, “Temash”. As we continue to enter the “Post-PC” era, where a
keyboard and mouse may be less prevalent on a typical desk, CyberLink’s
FaceMe^TM technology enables AMD users to skip the lengthy process of typing
usernames and passwords, offering a more enjoyable, intelligent human-computer

“It’s been our pleasure to partner with AMD as they selected CyberLink’s
unique FaceMe^TM technology in YouCam for their users,” said Alice H. Chang,
CEO of CyberLink. “CyberLink has been dedicated to upgrading consumers’
human-computer experience to a more convenient, user-friendly, and advanced
level. With AMD’s recognition, we combine webcams and facial recognition
technologies to create innovative usages that further enhance the typical
users’ PC experience.”

“With AMD Face Login on our upcoming “Richland” and “Temash” APUs, you become
the password,” said Neal Robison, Sr. Director of Consumer Content Application
Supportat AMD. “Leveraging CyberLink’s expertise in multimedia, we chose to
adopt FaceMe^TM facial recognition technology for AMD Face Login on platforms
powered by the “Richland” APUs, aiming to provide a smarter human-computer
interface for AMD users.”

CyberLink’s FaceMe^TM technology provides a convenient access to Windows as
well as multiple popular websites, including Facebook, Google, Yahoo!,
Youtube, Amazon, etc. By using a smart face recognition algorithm, the
solution  can quickly detect and recognize the individual features from a
webcam, then automatically sign the users in without filling out usernames and
passwords. In addition, the technology features a new Face-out function that
can automatically lock the screen, sleep, or hibernate the PC when necessary
to further enhance PC privacy and save power consumption.
