Microsoft is scheduled to launch dual face recognition web cameras in 2019. The Redmond-based software giant will launch two different web cameras with face recognition capabilities. According to Paul Thurrott, the company will launch one camera for Windows 10 and another for Xbox One device.
The Microsoft Web camera for PC and laptops will provide support for biometric authentication. The technology is built around the Windows Hello platform. The camera borrows the technology from the Microsoft Surface devices, which provide support for Face, Iris and Fingerprint sensor recognition.
The main purpose behind the release of the new web camera is to enable users to work with the camera in any device loaded with Windows 10. It is to be noted that Windows 10 laptops ships with an integrated web camera. It remains to be seen as to whether the secondary camera will make any sense.
The camera oriented for Xbox One will be equipped with face recognition using which you can log in automatically by moving in front of the camera lens. Dubbed to feature USB-C port, the new range of web cameras is expected to launch in 2019.
