FINGERMATRIX MATCHES FBI ELECTRONIC FINGERPRINTING STANDARD

 FINGERMATRIX MATCHES FBI ELECTRONIC FINGERPRINTING STANDARD
 NORTH WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., April 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Fingermatrix, Inc. (NASDAQ: FINX) today announced that its live scan electronic fingerprinting system meets the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) standard for data format for the interchange of fingerprint information. At the conclusion of the Fingerprint Image Workshop hosted by the FBI and NIST on March 4-6 the participants reconfirmed the standard for scanning, transmission, and storage of fingerprint images to be a minimum of 500 x 500 dots per inch (dpi). The Fingerscan(TM) 10 scans the fingerprint at 600 x 600 dpi, the highest resolution scan in the industry. This superior quality image is used to develop the 500 x 500 dpi image which matches the FBI/NIST standard before it is stored or transmitted.
 Michael Schiller, chief executive officer, said that the 600 x 600 dpi scan insures that prints scanned and transmitted from the local booking site to a central site are of the highest quality available. the 500 x 500 dpi standard was established as the minimum resolution necessary to meet the fingerprint examiners requirements which would also meet the capabilities of the majority of the electronic fingerprint scanning devices on the market.
 With the Fingermatrix system, a person's finger is placed on a surface, the device instantly scans it, reproduces a precise image on an FBI-type 10-print card, and simultaneously digitizes that image for electronic communication to and storage in a computer data file. It replaces the messy and inaccurate "ink-and-roll" method of fingerprinting in use for many decades.
 Fingermatrix, Inc. supplies automated biometric image processing systems to the commercial, industrial, governmental and law enforcement markets.
