Incorporating the latest AI facial recognition technology, PerfectCam can now detect people apart from their background. Background blur keeps any surrounding environment private during video conference calls. It allows professionals and remote workers to feel completely comfortable joining business meetings in an open office, while at home or out in public without the concern of prying eyes.

"With the exponentil growth of mobile offices, video conferencing has become an increasingly popular trend in recent years, especially for professionals on business trips, remote workers and digital nomads. We wanted to provide an innovative solution, allowing professionals to hold meetings in complete privacy anytime, anywhere," said Dr. Jau Huang, CEO of CyberLink. "PerfectCam 2 caters to business professionals all around the world, giving them the option to hide their surroundings, eliminate background distractions, and maintain a professional look with our appearance optimization tools."

Professionals can now ensure a well-lit environment in any condition via adjustable camera settings within the software, making it easy to modify brightness, contrast, and exposure, before or during a video call. Combined with AR-powered appearance optimization and skin smoothing tools, professionals can get ready for impromptu meetings using nine different virtual touch-up presets. Users can also create and save customized touch-up settings to ensure a perfect appearance for every meeting.

For professionals who use different video conferencing apps, PerfectCam 2 can function as a plug-in for any video conferencing and live broadcasting platform that supports webcam as a source video (e.g., Twitch, YouTube (News - Alert) Live, Facebook Live, etc.), enabling PerfectCam's instant touch-up tools and Background Blur technology anytime. Users can also launch four popular video conferencing apps (U, Skype, Skype for Business and Google Hangouts) directly from the PerfectCam's home screen for added convenience.
