Biometric charge room system for Texas department of public safety

L-1 Identity Solutions : 21 August, 2007  (Application Story)
Charge room system to incorporate biometric TouchPrint fingerprint recognition system with capabilities for integrated mug shots
L-1 Identity Solutions has received additional orders from the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) for 67 criminal booking systems totalling in excess of $1.6 million. The system orders include the TouchPrint Enhanced Definition 3800 live scan system for finger recognition, and integrated video mug shot capabilities powered by FaceIt software from Identix Incorporated, a wholly-owned subsidiary of L-1 Identity Solutions.
The first 29 systems ordered were delivered in the quarter ended June 30, 2007 and the remaining 38 units are expected to be installed in the quarter ending September 30, 2007. These orders are in addition to an initial order to Identix from Texas DPS announced early this year valued at more than $2.5 million for the purchase of a similar system. After the rollout of the latest order, Texas DPS will have a total of 225 Identix criminal booking systems.
Identix President Jim Moar, said, "We are very proud of this additional order from Texas DPS. We believe this provides further validation of our position as the leader in the criminal booking solutions market as we continue to secure substantial new live scan business and expand and upgrade the live scan networks of our existing customers. We are happy that our customers appreciate our efforts in providing them superior biometric recognition technologies that help them accurately identify more suspects and make the booking process more efficient, and outstanding customer service and support."
Texas DPS will use the system to complete the upgrade of its statewide live scan network by incorporating high-quality finger-based biometric images with integrated video mug shot capabilities. The upgrade is part of Governor Rick Perry's initiative to ensure that every county sheriff's office in Texas has a live scan system that will determine the identification of a subject while in custody.
The orders come from a blanket purchase agreement signed by Identix and Texas DPS in June 2006 following a competitive contract win.
