ArcSoft’s simplicam™ Powered by Closeli™ Awarded “Best of Show” at 2014 MacWorld/iWorld Conference and Expo Presented by MacWorld and IDG Consumer & SMB

On Friday March 28, 2014, Macworld, the world's foremost Mac authority, revealed that ArcSoft’s simplicam powered by Closeli received the “Best of Show” award at the 2014 MacWorld/iWorld Conference and Expo. simplicam powered by Closeli, the only home monitoring solution with facial detection that tells you if someone is home, was selected from hundreds of products that were showcased during the annual three-day conference in San Francisco March 27-29, 2014. The annual feature presentation honors those products that have pushed the boundaries of innovation, quality, and overall creativity.

simplicam powered by Closeli is the first and only home monitoring solution providing intelligent alerts based on facial detection, providing users notifications if someone is in the house, but not disturbing them if a branch, or cat, moves within the frame.

“We are thrilled that simplicam powered by Closeli was recognized as one of the top new products at MacWorld this year,” said ArcSoft’s Senior Director of Product Marketing, Caroline Tien-Spalding. “MacWorld is the ultimate event for those who use and love Apple products. Our fans and customers continue to inspire us to design products for people who value connectedness, safety and piece of mind. This honor reaffirms ArcSoft’s objective in setting the standard in the connected home experience.”

The simplicam camera’s easy to set-up, flexible mounting options and watch anywhere technology provides users with the ability to watch what is happening at home from their smartphone, tablet, or computer in 720p HD video quality. Users can also enjoy live viewing and motion/sound alerts from a smartphone via the Closeli mobile app or web. Additional Closeli Recording Services provide the unique facial detection technology and several recording options as short as one day, or as long as 21 days. Closeli Recording Services also offer users the ability to receive enhanced features on their smartphone, such as recording in the cloud, easy editing and sharing options. This smart and secure solution is fully customizable, with automatic on/off options, SSL encrypted video and motion detection notification, all done with the touch of a button on your smartphone.

Editors considered hundreds of products before narrowing the field down to the 11 winners that were presented at this year's Macworld Conference and Expo.
