ArcSoft Debuts Advanced Capture Solutions for TI OMAP-DM Co-Processors

ArcSoft, Inc. introduced availability of its Advanced Capture Technologies on Texas Instruments’ (TI) OMAP-DM multimedia co-processors, bringing Face Tracking, Anti-Shaking, Smile Detection, and Blink Detection to 3, 5, and 8 mega-pixel camera phones. See their Face Tracking and Blink Detection demonstrations in TI Booth #1048 at the CTIA 2008, April 1st – 3rd, in the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Pre-integrated with TI OMAP-DM co-processors, ArcSoft’s Face Tracking offers Face-Prioritized Focus and Aperture settings to improve the quality of portrait shots. Combined with Anti-Shaking, Smile Detection and Blink Detection, OEMs now have the opportunity to create a wide range of innovative solutions addressing different market segments.
