Toshiba Brings Face Recognition to New Laptops

Toshiba Satellite Notebook PC

Toshiba says its newly designed Satellite laptops are equipped with an innovative face recognition software technology, which provides users with a fun and convenient way to log in to a personal computer.

The new technology harnesses the Satellite’s built-in Webcam to grant or deny access by quickly referencing a database of stored digital images of a registered user’s face. This database is created during a short setup process, where a user is prompted to move their head from side-to-side and up-and-down until their face has been adequately profiled with a series of still images.

Beyond traditional password and fingerprint login options, face recognition gives users a unique alternative for signing in to their laptop. Multiple users can use the software to log in to their personal accounts, which is ideal for family or dorm room scenarios where multiple users share the same laptop.

Toshiba’s face recognition software is provided for with the new Satellite U400, Satellite M300, Satellite A300 and Satellite P300 notebook PCs.
