Leading multi-biometric technology company Identix Incorporated, is teaming with Sacramento-based NEC Solutions (America) to upgrade and expand Indianas statewide live scan network with the newly introduced Identix(R) Live Scan TouchPrint(TM) Enhanced Definition 3000 Series.

Identix and NEC have worked closely together for a number of years to provide live scan workstations that integrate Identix live scan technology with NECs AFIS (Automated Fingerprint Identification System). The integrated systems, NEC LS 21(TM) workstations, are being deployed to law enforcement agencies throughout Indiana to expand the reach of the States existing live scan/AFIS network, as well as to upgrade legacy workstations. Identix said it has received a new purchase order valued at approximately $1.1 million from NEC for multiple units of its recently introduced Identix Live Scan TouchPrint Enhanced Definition 3000 Series. NEC incorporates Identix live scan systems as part of the NEC LS 21 workstation. Including todays announced purchase order, Identix has received purchase orders from NEC for Identix live scan systems totaling approximately $2.0 million over the past three months. Two of the earlier purchase orders were announced by Identix in its fiscal 2005 second quarter, which ended December 31, 2004. For then existing competitive reasons and confidentiality purposes, the customer went unidentified at the time. Under the most recent purchase order, Identix expects to deliver the live scan systems to NEC and to install them in locations throughout Indiana over the course of the next three calendar months. Barry Fisher, associate vice president, AFIS Division of NEC Solutions America commented, This is an excellent win for NEC and Identix. Identix continues to differentiate itself in the live scan market through superior image quality and consistent technological breakthroughs that provide significant benefits to our customers. We look forward to continuing to work with Identix as AFIS and live scan requirements increase throughout North America and around the world. Continuing to team with leading AFIS providers such as NEC is an excellent way to further extend the reach of our penetration into the biometrics market, said Identix President & CEO Dr. Joseph J. Atick. Our relationship with NEC goes back a number of years and we are pleased that NEC continues to recognize the superior quality, value and customer satisfaction that Identix technology provides. This is a great win for both companies. Dr. Atick continued, Last week we shared Identix continuing belief that the aggregate dollar size of technology awards in the biometrics industry is trending higher. In February alone, Identix has announced more than $2.5 million in new purchase orders for our recently released Enhanced Definition Systems. We believe this order provides continuing validation that todays customers are more and more appreciating that quality matters, and that Identix is the multi biometrics provider with superior quality technology.
