PRESS RELEASE

Extended features developed around the Intel® RealSenseTM 3D Camera enable new ways to customise and control the webcam environment during chats and conferences  

London, United Kingdom - December 18, 2014 - CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), the world's leading consumer multimedia software company, today announced a new version of its popular YouCam webcam software, which leverages the unique Intel RealSense 3D camera to provide immersive virtual webcam environments.

YouCam RX provides a real-time green screen-like experience, letting users create customised backgrounds for their webcam sessions enabling users to instantly place themselves in any setting of their choice.

Enterprise users can also utilize YouCam RX in the work environment by removing the background entirely and replacing it with a PowerPoint presentation or other graphic for a truly interactive approach to conferencing. Users can select a variety of screen layouts and remove the background in PIP video or side-by-side display to create the illusion that they are in the room presenting. Or draw by hand or record mouse cursor movements on your presentation to highlight key areas.

New feature additions also include depth-sensing foreground/background adjustments, allowing lighting and contrast enhancements to be applied to specific regions of the webcam window, as well as popular effects such as face silhouetting and pixelation.

"At CyberLink we're always looking for new ways we can help people to better interact with their digital devices," said Alice H. Chang, CEO of CyberLink. "Intel's RealSense 3D camera provided us with an opportunity to create software that blurs the line between human and computer interaction, and we're excited to be one of the first developers to take advantage of this leading-edge technology." 

"Intel is collaborating with CyberLink to help deliver new and compelling experiences to consumers. YouCam RX takes advantage of Intel RealSense Technology to deliver powerful features that allow users to blend their real world with the virtual world," said Christos Georgiopoulos, vice president, Software and Services Group and general manager, Developer Relations Division, Intel Corporation.
