Bioscrypt VissionAccess 3D Face Solution Selected for Online Child Identification System



    Saferkidz captures 3D facial images to assist parents and police in
    finding missing children

    TORONTO, April 24 /CNW/ - Bioscrypt Inc. (TSX: BYT), a leading provider
of enterprise access control technology, today announced that Saferkidz has
selected the Bioscrypt 3D face solution for their parent controlled online
child identification system. The first deployment of the technology will be
taking place at the U.S. Army's Fort Bragg in North Carolina.
    No parent wants to think their child could go missing or be abducted but
it happens 800,000 times a year in the United States, that's one child every
40 seconds. Although the first three hours after the child's disappearance are
the most critical, police say it typically takes parents two hours to gather
information on their missing child to deliver to them, the media and the
concerned public. SaferKidz empowers parents to be prepared and enables
crucial agencies to obtain the information they need in a timely way so the
child can be found and returned safely.
    The primary advantage of the Saferkidz system is the use of advanced 3D
visualization technology that captures detailed facial images, which are far
superior to flat 2D still pictures. Used in conjunction with information
management tools to keep track of facts including addresses and phone numbers
of friends and other places the children frequent, the collective information
allows parents a greater capability to be prepared in advance of any crisis
with the highest quality records required for relevant agencies to assist in
recovery.
    This information is literally at the parent's fingertip anytime an
emergency may arise, accessible by their unique logon and password from
anyplace that has an internet connection. In addition, there is an alert
engine - KidzCast - that allows parents to pre-program who will get an alert
should the child go missing and which of four levels of information will be
sent.
    "The ability to quickly deliver highly accurate, comprehensive identity
information, including 3D facial images, to law enforcement agencies, the
media and the general public drastically improves the potential of a child's
safe return to their family," said Lawrence Schrank, founder of SaferKidz. "As
we demonstrate the innovative 3D modeling system at Fort Bragg, we will be
showing both local and federal law enforcement officials the significant value
of this child identification resource."
    Bioscrypt is providing Saferkidz with the ability to create an image
combining the 3D facial representation of the child generated by its patented
system that collects 40,000 measurable data points on the face with a
traditional 2D full color picture. The result is high resolution color 3D
model which provides a better image of the missing child than the 2D images
typically available.
    "This application of our technology is a strong example of how capturing
biometric information can serve to increase the safety of our children and
provide another tool to parents and families who are searching for a loved
one," said Robert L. Williams, President and CEO of Bioscrypt. "We look
forward to gaining positive results in the work being done at Fort Bragg and
assisting Saferkidz extend the program across the U.S."
