MINNETONKA, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 6, 2005--Identix Incorporated (Nasdaq:IDNX) announced that it has recently been awarded contracts from Texas state and local government agencies for Identix(R) TouchPrint(TM) Enhanced Definition 3000 Series Live Scan Systems and related biometrics technology. The purchase orders are from two agencies in Texas that are using the new live scan systems and related technology to upgrade and expand their existing network of legacy Identix live scan systems. The orders, which have a total value in excess of $650,000, are expected to ship and be installed in the Company's fiscal 2006 second and third quarters ending December 31, 2005 and March 31, 2006, respectively.
"Demand for biometric technology offering superior image quality continues to be strong," said Identix President & CEO Dr. Joseph J. Atick. "We believe Identix' reputation as the premier provider of the highest quality systems, incorporating state-of-the-art technology in a very user friendly interface, continues to set Identix apart as the biometric solutions provider of choice.

Identix TouchPrint Enhanced Definition 3000 Series
The TouchPrint Enhanced Definition 3000 Series exceeds the FBI Appendix F standard by providing 3.5 times the pixel density and 300 percent more contrast, resulting in images that have far more fine ridge detail than dictated by the Appendix F requirements. The TouchPrint Enhanced Definition 3000 Series employs technologies that take into account subjects with different size fingers and skin colors, sweaty fingers and users rolling fingers at different speeds. The systems produce clear, crisp fingerprint images with virtually no distortion or false minutiae that can be caused by smudging and smearing. TouchPrint Enhanced Definition 3000 Series systems are designed to maintain consistent image quality over time, and with no moving parts in the optics deck and no silicon pads or coatings to change, they provide maximum reliability and minimal downtime, lowering the total overall cost of ownership.
The TouchPrint Enhanced Definition 3000 Live Scan Series is comprised of rugged and stylized terminals for roll and slap fingerprint capture that can be integrated with software for a complete fingerprinting system in either desktop or transportable configurations, as well as standalone booking stations designed to withstand heavy traffic and harsh environments.
The TouchPrint 3800 employs a proprietary cylindrical imager that enables the full hand - including the carpal crease, cup of the palm, and fingertips - to be captured in a single, intuitive step. There is no 'stitching together' of partial palm and finger images, which can result in images being associated with the wrong record. Proprietary optics capture resolution enhances image quality, giving operators optimal ridge detail information that can be used to help solve more crimes. Users of the TouchPrint 3800 have attested to the systems' ease of use, high image quality and reliability.
