C.E.S. 2013: Panasonic’s TVs Can Recognize a Face

Panasonic’s new product introductions at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas touch on what is becoming a common theme —–making your TV do the work of finding shows you want to watch.

.

The company announced a feature called “My Home Screen” that will show a viewer customized suggestions of TV shows, streaming shows and Internet content, all on one screen. The idea is to put all of the content in one place so a viewer does not have to search separately for TV shows and video on demand, for instance. Each family member can have a personalized screen, and will not have to sign in — the higher-end Panasonic TVs will have a built-in camera that will use face recognition to determine whose preferences to display.

Panasonic is not the only company taking this approach. Samsung is introducing a similar home page that also incorporates social networks

Just got back from CES.

What a boring thing this is.

Hundreds of big screen TV’s, smart phones and headphones/speakers (rinse and repeat).

There is nothing new under the sun.

I would rather go to a car show.

Your attempt at sarcasm, Mr. F15 Eagle, (if in fact that is your REAL mane) will be reported to the proper authorities. Please contact the nearest Ministry of Love substation and await further instructions. In the meantime, why not watch a good movie...or some football?

Wouldn’t be of use to me as my connection out here kinda sucks, so using web-based features through the tv is a no-go for me. If I lived in town I’d probably be all over it.

Televisions have been “two way” for more than 20 years. While we’re watching TV, someone is watching us.
