Bioscrypt 3D Face Recognition Solution Selected by Japanese Government Agency for Access Control

    The Bioscrypt VisionAccess 3D Face Reader provides next generation
    biometric access to a Tokyo based agency

    TORONTO, March 20 /CNW/ - Bioscrypt Inc. (TSX: BYT), a leading provider
of enterprise access control solutions, today announced the deployment of its
VisionAccess 3D Face Readers at a Japanese Government Agency located in Tokyo.
Employees will be identified based on a face match only, without the need for
ID cards, keys or PIN technology. In using only biometric identification, the
system eliminates the risk of tokens and keys being lost, stolen or misused.
    The VisionAccess 3D Face Reader, the world's first three-dimensional
facial identification/verification reader with active user feedback, was
chosen by the systems integrator, Barrier Reef, as the biometric component of
the physical access system to be deployed at the Tokyo based agency because of
the unique combination of accuracy and speed of recognition that the system
    "The facial recognition units monitor the entry and exit of hundreds of
people each day without failure," stated Haruo Kosugi, Director, Barrier Reef.
"The agency is extremely pleased with the results and plans on expanding the
program to other agencies within the next few months."
    "Government agencies around the world continue to rely on Bioscrypt to
provide leading edge biometric physical access control technologies to verify
the identity of individuals who enter their facilities and with the recent
introduction of 3D face solutions, Bioscrypt now offers a greater range of
products to meet the demands of partners and end-user prospects," said Robert
L. Williams, President and CEO Bioscrypt. "Barrier Reef has proven to be a
valued partner for us in the Japanese market and we look forward to continued
success with them going forward."
    Bioscrypt's advanced 3D facial recognition system uses structured
lighting to create a facial grid of 40,000 measurable data points. The system
performs multiple facial scans and comparisons against a database of stored
images and corresponding data, and conducts accurate identification at
sub-second speeds, from which authorized persons are confirmed for access.
