Emza’s Ultra-Low-Power WiseEye™ Solution Powers Vision AI Features in Dell’s New Laptops

2022-04-13 14:00:00

Emza Visual Sense announced that its revolutionary WiseEye™ technology is providing innovative AI-based visual sensing technology in a range of new Latitude, Inspiron and Precision laptops from Dell. The ultra-low-power WiseEye NB system runs unique Machine Learning (ML) and Neural Network based algorithms to enable advanced human detection features in the new laptops. WiseEye’s always-on, ultra-low-power sensor enables applications for enhanced user experience, privacy and security, and it works with the Dell Optimizer integrated AI software suite to enhance that platform’s intelligent privacy features. Emza’s algorithms, executed by Himax Technologies’ ultra-low-power AI processor, provide contextual awareness with the ability to visually detect user engagement levels based on presence, movements, and facial direction, contributing to better display power management and maximizing battery life. Key features enabled by WiseEye NB include: Look Away Detect: To conserve display power and protect data, always-aware AI algorithms adaptively dim the screen when the user is not engaged, then return it to its original intensity when the user’s face re-orients to the display. On-looker Detection: For enhanced user privacy and security, the system will recognize if a second person is looking at the screen within the field of view, and automatically blur the screen to conceal sensitive information while sending a privacy alert to the user. Reliable Presence Detection: For increased security and power savings, vision-based user presence algorithms enable enhanced wake-on-approach and Express Sign-In capability as well as screen lock/unlock. User Configurability: Through integration with Dell Optimizer, users can personalize their experience, setting detection alerts for specific scenarios. The WiseEye solution was architected for user privacy. Since sensor images are processed entirely on the dedicated WiseEye processor which is co-located with the CMOS image sensor, images are never stored or transmitted to the main platform. The WiseEye system outputs only user presence metadata to the Intel Context Awareness Service and Dell Optimizer software.

Himax Technologies, Inc. Announces Its Universally Adopted Industry-Leading Timing Controller

2021-12-22 09:10:00

Himax Technologies, Inc. announced its universally adopted industry-leading timing controller (TCON), HX8880-D/E Series, will be showcased with various global dominant panel makers, Tier-1 suppliers, and major automotive partners at CES 2022 from January 5 to January 8 in Las Vegas. Himax HX8880-D/E Series features the state-of-the-art local dimming function that can support ultra-high resolution and high contrast panels for automotive applications. Himax HX8880-D has already entered production in numbers of premium car models. The next generation HX8880-E is set to enter full scale production by mid-2022. The HX8880-E local dimming TCON is equipped with high-speed P2P transmission interface and provides image processing functions, including Over-Drive that indispensably improves sluggish response characteristics of the liquid crystal displays, and Demura that reduces the luminance non-uniformity for curved automotive display. The HX8880-E, in collaborating with Himax industry-leading automotive TDDI, can support super high resolution, up to 7K1K, and larger sized displays, more than 30 inches, for modish automotive interior design. Most importantly, Himax HX8880-E can couple with mini-LED backlight to reach thousands of dimming zones or with dual-cell structured panel to enable millions of dimming partitions. Both will offer superior homogenous light distribution and/or compelling true black, HDR and contrast enhancement with extreme low power and thermal reduction benefits. This feature is of particular importance for display to show highly contrasted information when driving under highly illuminating sunlight and provides better driver safety protection. In addition to providing the standard TCON, Himax also offers customized TCON solutions based on customers’ diverse requirements. Given its outstanding performance, numerous panel makers and Tier-1 suppliers from the United States, Europe, China, Japan, and Korea are enthusiastically cooperating with Himax and have successfully adopted Himax local dimming TCON technology inside their latest flagship car models. Furthermore, to adhere to the strict automotive-grade supply chain management requirements, Himax collaboratively works with worldwide leading LED driver suppliers, such as Texas Instruments, ROHM, Renesas Electronics, Analog Devices Inc., Macroblock, and many others to complete the qualification processes for panel design. The company’s partnership with leading LED driver suppliers allows both parties to be at the forefront of automotive innovation for newly launched vehicles.

Technical Analysis

When trying to optimize the timing of an investment, it's critical to analyze whether the stock looks overbought or oversold, and in which direction the momentum is moving. Himax's stock is now priced below its 5-day, 50-day, and 200-day moving average, while its MACD (moving average convergence divergence) indicates that the stock's price movement momentum is weakening. Historically, this is a negative setup in the near, medium, and long-term. Meanwhile, looking at the Stochastic Oscillator and RSI (relative strength index), Himax's stock indicates that it's likely oversold. Overall, these technical indicators signal negative momentum. Therefore, this stock received a cumulative TA (technical analysis) score of 42.

Balance Sheet Analysis

Overall, Himax's critical balance sheet metrics appear to signal strong support and a high likelihood of positive growth going forward. Himax publishes solid book value factor metrics in this report. Price to book ratio (P/B) now sits at 1.7 and represents a -48.1% change from the previous report. These book value factor numbers show that management has been prudent in focusing on efficient growth. We believe the stock price has room to grow to reflect its intrinsic value accurately. Therefore, its book value factors earned a score of 95. Also, Himax produced great equity metrics for this filing, demonstrating management's skill in increasing shareholder value. Himax's equity was reported as 987.0, which represents a 13.5% change from the last report. This parameter often affects companies in the same industry and market capitalization by up to 7.7%. These metrics are all the more impressive relative to their peers and should support an upswing in their stock price. Therefore, its equity movement component earned a score of 91. That said, one metric, Assets, stood out as particularly concerning. Himax's management did not succeed in significantly improving the value of the assets on their balance sheet, which now sits at 1769.2 and represents a 10.4% change from the previous report. The lack of good news about assets momentum should be a cause for concern and is often met with downward pressure on the company's stock price. Consequently, their asset movement received a grade of 55. The company's balance sheet received an overall score of 77.

Parameter Value Change Score
Assets 1,769.2 10.4% 55
Liabilities 780.4 6.7% 78
