BSI2000, Inc., Denver, (BULLETIN BOARD: BSIO), a leading developer of high-end access control security systems for commercial and governmental use, has announced that its ClearID2000-T(TM) electronic fingerprint scanning system has received certification from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) that it is in compliance with the FBI's Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System (IAFIS) Image Quality Specifications (IQS).

The test data review was conducted by the FBI's Communications & Technology Branch, Criminal Justice Information Services Division. The certification process is not intended to endorse one product over another, but rather to certify that the product meets FBI technical standards.

The model tested and certified by the FBI is BSI2000's ClearID2000-T, which incorporates the Smiths Heimann Biometrics Lite-Xe fingerprint livescan device at 500 ppi (no membrane).

Jack Harper, CEO of BSI2000, said, "This was another excellent effort by the BSI2000 technical team led by Dr. Kevin Wilson, chief technologist, and Glenn Junik, vice president engineering. Successful completion of the FBI certification should certainly expand the market even more for this exciting new product.

"There are large markets for ClearID2000-T in the law enforcement community, as well as extensive other potential markets such as background checks for teachers and child IDs. The expense of products previously in place for fingerprinting has precluded widespread use of electronic scanning systems, giving us a competitive advantage. ClearID2000-T also has high portability (pick up and go), extreme ease of use through a well-thought-out graphical user interface with a touchscreen, a very low learning curve and high durability."
