Friday 21 November 2003 22:10 CET | News

Identix has received orders from several law enforcement agencies throughout the State of California for Identix tenprint live scan systems to assist the agencies in the rapid capture and transmission of biometric fingerprint data, primarily for suspect processing.

The orders are for Identix TouchPrint 3000 tenprint live scan systems, as well as for upgrades to a few existing, previously installed Identix live scan systems. Several of the newly ordered systems include Identix full hand live scan scanner, the only full hand live scan scanner available in the biometrics industry. Identix currently has an installed base of more than 600 live scan systems throughout the State of California. The shipments, installations and upgrades under the orders, which are valued at approximately $500,000 in the aggregate, are expected to be completed over the next two quarters ending December 31, 2003 and March 31, 2004, respectively. Identix TouchPrint 3000 Series fingerprint optical scanner is the only ten-print scanner that is totally sealed, with no moving parts and using a single large, non-coated platen. It is designed for enhanced image quality as well as improved reliability, which leads to higher throughput and lower total cost of ownership. Revolutionary optical and lighting schemes -- Moisture Discriminating Optics (patented), Dual Beam Illumination (patent pending) and Clear Trace Imaging (patent pending) -- enable the TouchPrint 3000 Series live scan systems to ignore moisture, dirt, residue and latent prints left behind on the platen, helping to lower AFIS rejection rates, maximize throughput and dramatically enhance AFIS performance. The TouchPrint 3000 Series also provides customers the option of the first and only commercially available fingerprinting system with an integrated IQS Appendix F certified full hand scanner, able to capture an image from the carpal crease to the fingertips in one continuous scan.
