DigitalOptics Corporation Licenses Market Leading Image Enhancement Technology To Cammsys

DigitalOptics Corporation™, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tessera Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: TSRA), announced that it has licensed its Face Tracker™ facial tracking technology to Cammsys Co. Ltd., a camera module maker focused on the mobile phone market.

“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, DigitalOptics Corporation. “Our expertise in imaging and optics technology will help Cammsys to offer better images with a fast, flexible, high-performance solution in its top of the line camera modules.”

“DigitalOptics’ innovative face tracking technology will add to the capabilities of our megapixel camera modules for the mobile phone market,” said Park Young Tae, president and chief executive officer, Cammsys Co. Ltd. “Our mobile device components will build on the latest advancements in image technology from DigitalOptics.”

DigitalOptics provides fast, high-performance face detection and tracking capabilities that enable the camera to select optimal settings automatically for the perfect picture. Using innovative face-oriented algorithms, the technology detects straight away the faces in the camera viewfinder, and tracks them moving through the image if the camera is rotated or subjects shift their poses. It enables a camera to automatically adjust focus, color and exposure settings, optimizing portraits even in the most challenging conditions, when subjects are backlit, off-center or over/under exposed. The technology also incorporates advanced tracking algorithms to lock and anticipate the changing position of faces allowing high quality photography when the subject is in motion.
