Toshiba Brings Face Recognition Technology To New Satellite Lineup
Toshiba’s Digital Products Division (DPD),
a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., today highlighted that its newly designed Satellite® laptops are equipped with its innovative face recognition software technology, which provides users with a fun and convenient way to log in to a personal computer.
Toshiba Satellite U400
“Toshiba prides itself on making laptops that stand out in the marketplace,” said Jeff Barney, vice president of marketing, Digital Products Division, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc. “With the addition of face recognition, the newly designed Satellite models have yet another great feature that showcases Toshiba’s passion for creating innovative technologies that are equally enjoyable to use.”
The TOSHIBA Face Recognition software is a technology that harnesses the Satellite’s built-in Webcam to grant or deny access by quickly referencing a database of stored digital images of a registered user’s face. This database is created during a short setup process, where a user is prompted to move their head from side-to-side and up-and-down until their face has been adequately profiled with a series of still images.
Beyond traditional password and fingerprint login options, face recognition gives users a unique alternative for signing in to their laptop. Multiple users can use the software to log in to their personal accounts, which is ideal for family or dorm room scenarios where multiple users share the same laptop.
Toshiba’s four newly designed Satellite models with the Fusion™ finish, the Satellite U400, Satellite M300, Satellite A300 and Satellite P300 are each equipped with the TOSHIBA Face Recognition software.
The software also provides flexibility by allowing periodic image updates to ensure that the latest user photos are available in order to account for changes in a user’s physical appearance, such as the growing or shaving of a beard or mustache.
Toshiba’s four newly designed Satellite models with the Fusion™ finish, the Satellite U400, Satellite M300, Satellite A300 and Satellite P300 are each equipped with the TOSHIBA Face Recognition software. Each Satellite model series is available from a variety of major consumer electronics and computer stores nationwide, or directly from Toshiba at www.toshibadirect.com.
