San Diego, CA - September, 12 2002
ZyGoDigital and True Image announced sales of nStantID™ Checker, an inexpensive alternative to biometric security devices, will begin October 1, 2002.
Checker allows field personnel to verify IDs using nothing more than a PDA. The system provides a database of ID information, including the ID image on a PDA. Verifying a person's identity is a simple matter of comparing the PDA image, the ID Card and the person. All three images must match. Data for over 10,000 people, including images, can be provided on a PDA. The ZygoDigital still image compressor reduces each full color image to less than 1000 bytes.
Unlike biometric systems, Checker does not require real time access to networks, predefined access points or any special sensors. Biometric technologies are appropriate for institutions with large budgets, fixed access points and high security needs. Checker provides a simple low cost, highly reliable and accurate solution for enterprises where portability and cost are issues.
Checker also includes an integrated desktop ID Card system that allows on-the-spot creation of photo IDs and download of the data to the PDA. Checker is compatible with most other ID systems. ID data may be imported from simple tab delimited files. Any QuickTime® supported image format may be processed for download to the PDA.
Checker is based on True Image technology developed to provide schools with instant ID cards and PDA based Student Information Systems (SIS). These systems have proven to be both reliable and easy to use during several years of use in high and middle schools. Checker leverages this technology to provide a low cost solution that immediately upgrades security for government and commercial enterprises.
