Taipei, Taiwan — April 23, 2020 — CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), a pioneer in AI and facial recognition technologies, announced integration of its FaceMe® AI engine by NEC Personal Computer on NEC LAVIE Home All-in-one PCs, enabling new features powered by facial recognition on the “LAVIE AI Assistant” software – such as a PC being able to recognize the face of each family member with FaceMe® and launch personalized interfaces, enhancing the overall user experience in a multi-user scenario.
LAVIE Home All-in-one, which comes with a 10th generation Intel® Core™ processor, is now available in the Japanese market.

Just like in many other IoT and AIoT applications, facial recognition holds limitless potential to enhance the overall user experience on consumer devices,” said Dr. Jau Huang, CEO of CyberLink. “CyberLink and NEC Personal Computer have been partners for years, providing the company with a number of multimedia software products. By integrating FaceMe®, users owning NEC’s LAVIE Home All-in-one PCs can now access an enhanced, convenient and secure experience due to the innovation unlocked through our facial recognition expertise.”
