CyberLink Releases New PerfectCam Update, Adding AI-powered Background Image Replacement for Video Meetings
Taipei, Taiwan—March 26, 2019—CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), today announced an update to its PerfectCam subscription video meeting appearance optimization software. The latest update sees the addition of Artificial Intelligence (AI) powered background replacement, as an enhancement to the Background Blur feature that was released in January of this year. PerfectCam is compatible with popular video services such as CyberLink U Meeting, U Webinar, Skype, Google Hangouts and Facebook Live, and can serve as a webcam plug-in for any video conferencing and live broadcasting platform that supports webcam as a source video.
With Background Blur, PerfectCam users can distort their background to hide their surroundings, or protect sensitive information. The new Background Image Replacement feature adds to this capability, enabling users to fill in their video chat background with their own custom images, and allowing them to maintain a professional appearance and presence. Leveraging CyberLink’s leadership in the fields of AI and Augmented Reality (AR), PerfectCam’s Background Blur technology is based around a finely-tuned machine learning algorithm that provides accurate detection and differentiation between people and their surroundings.
“With the upward trend in remote working and telecommuting, video meetings can take place anywhere, and at any time, making it paramount that participants are able to maintain their privacy,” said Dr. Jau Huang, CEO of CyberLink. “With PerfectCam, we leverage cutting-edge AI and AR technology to ensure that our users can not only look their best during important video calls, but that they can also keep the privacy of their homes, families, and sensitive information safely hidden from prying eyes.”
PerfectCam removes the stress from video meetings, especially impromptu ones, with AR-powered appearance optimization and skin smoothing tools that ensure professionals always look their best with just the click of a button, no matter where they are or what time of day it might be. PerfectCam subscription plans start from US$10.83 per month (PerfectCam Annual Plan), offering excellent value for remote business professionals. Additionally, PerfectCam comes free with CyberLink U Meeting & U Webinar subscriptions.
