SEOUL, May 13 (Korea Bizwire) – Amid continued reports of privacy infringements and social awareness of electric power shortage problem, Samsung Electronics have launched solutions that can help to cope with the both problems at the same time.
Korea’s leading electronics company announced that they have added “illegal recording prevention” function in their new products to keep privacy violation through webcams and microphones at bay, and have developed “Peak Time Power Management Mode” to solve power shortage problems during summer and winter season.
Starting from its new “ATIV” desktop model, Samsung kicked off the illegal recording prevention function to head off from the hacking of a desktop computer to take a peek into the user’s privacy through the installed webcam.
The function will act in two levels: “Protection level one” will automatically disable the webcam and the microphone when the desktop is unused for a certain amount of time, and “Protection level two” will completely shut out the camera and microphone function instantly when initialized, providing invincible protection from the threat while the computer is being used.
The electronics company also presented the power saving solution which will be useful to companies and public organizations that consume a considerable amount of electric power.
With the peak time power management mode, the user can set peak hours of power usage and adjust the computer to automatically switch from using the AC power to use its battery power during the hours.
The software can also be synchronized to the enterprise PC management tool so that the peak hours power saving could be implemented company-wide by centralized control.
The solution will help companies to comply immediately with the government’s power saving policy and also save on electronic bills since industrial power is generally charged in different scales based on the time of usage.
An official in Samsung Electronics said, “Developing products that will help with the social issue is a way for a company to bear social responsibilities.”
