TAIPEI, Taiwan --(Business Wire)--
Corp. (5203.TW), an innovative solutions provider for media
creativity, is pleased to announce that AMD (News - Alert) (NYSE: AMD) has chosen to
license its FaceMeTM facial recognition technology featured
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 FaceMeTM technology enables AMD
users to skip the lengthy process of typing usernames and passwords,
offering a more enjoyable, intelligent human-computer interface.

unique FaceMeTM technology in YouCam for their users," said
Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink. "CyberLink has been dedicated to

webcams and facial recognition technologies to create innovative usages
that further enhance the typical users' PC experience."

become the password," said Neal Robison, Sr. Director of Consumer
Content Application Support at AMD. "Leveraging CyberLink's expertise in
multimedia, we chose to adopt FaceMeTM facial recognition
technology for AMD Face Login on platforms powered by the "Richland"
APUs, aiming to provide a smarter human-computer interface for AMD
CyberLink's FaceMeTM technology provides a convenient access
to Windows as well as multiple popular websites, including Facebook (News - Alert),

sleep, or hibernate the PC when necessary to further enhance PC privacy
