IQ Biometrix Forms Strategic Alliance
& CUPERTINO, Calif. Sept. 26, 2002 - IQ Biometrix Inc.,
the operating entity of JVWeb Inc. JVWW, a worldwide provider
of facial comparison security software, announced today
that it has formed a strategic alliance with SocialTech
two organizations will integrate their respective software
products in order to help law enforcement officials and
community organizations quickly solve crimes.
"Technology to Recover Abducted Kids," is a computer
software system that was originally designed to help law
enforcement agencies locate and recover abducted children.
It has since been used in countless types of cases, assisting
law enforcement in the process of communicating important
visual information. This system allows any police officer
to quickly and efficiently create high-resolution photo
bulletins and share them electronically with other law enforcement
jurisdictions, the media, and the community, when they deem
it appropriate. Learn more at http://socialtech.trak.org/.
3.0, The Ultimate Composite Picture, has been a key element
in the capture of criminals. Soon to be launched FACES 4.0
is based on an extensive library of over 5,000 different
facial features -- 1,200 more than version 3.0 -- including
scars, tattoos, earrings and piercings, and many other unique
facial traits. The features can be combined, through the
software program, into unique facial composites, which can
be converted into unique 38-digit alphanumeric ID codes.
3.0 has been in the market for four years, and is used by
more than 5,000 police and intelligence agencies, including
the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the U.S. military.
Through the application of a common alphanumeric ID code
all of these law enforcement agencies can quickly and effectively
work together to apprehend criminals. FACES also functions
as a problem prevention application in several hundred schools.
