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.

It was terribly dangerous to let your thoughts wander when you were in any public place or within range of a telescreen. The smallest thing could give you away. A nervous tic, an unconscious look of anxiety, a habit of muttering to yourself – anything that carried with it the suggestion of abnormality, of having something to hide. In any case, to wear an improper expression on your face (to look incredulous when a victory was announced, for example) was itself a punishable offense.

Nothing would surprise me in that regard. I ditched TV over 10 years ago and do not miss it. After 500 channels of boredom with Dish, and for more than I want to pay for that boredom, I quit and use my TV as a monitor.

But it never ceases to amaze me that every advance that brings entry by either govt or business into the home in the name of continence, more and more people lap it up while saying they worry about that very thing. And claim tinfoil for anyone pointing out that such convinences WILL go beyond their stated purposes.

People thought the ‘crash box’ stuff in cars was great with lower ins rated. Now people are learning that the ins co.s use the data to deny claims. And the GPS in a modern car can be used to track speeding.

But noooooo that doesn’t and would NEVER happen. Just crazy tinfoiler stuff...

I stopped the TV on Showtime FAMILY channel and was greeted with a movie where a high school girl gets birth control and consent from her permissive parents.

right

I am often perplexed by what Hollyweird considers “family” programming

In Soviet Russia, they had projection television.

In Soviet Amerika, networks have anchors who project.
