BIO-key(R) Granted Image Identification System Patent for Award Winning Biometric Technology

Patented BIO-key software delivers consistent quality images, resulting in

higher accuracy and better user experience

WALL, N.J., April 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BIO-key International, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: BKYI), a leader in finger-based biometric identification and wireless public safety solutions, today announced that on April 15, 2008, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued US patent No. 7,359,553 covering BIO-key's image enhancement and data extraction core algorithm components.

The first feature of the newly patented algorithm covers BIO-key's unique capability to quickly and accurately transform a fingerprint image into a computer image that can be analyzed to determine the critical data elements. Another component of the Image Identification System covered by this patent is the ability to quickly match an image among thousands or more of image models (fingerprints). The ability to quickly provide feedback without compromising accuracy is a key ingredient for any biometric identification solution.

"Superior image analysis and parsing is a critical element of any highly accurate fingerprint matching algorithm," stated Mira LaCous, BIO-key's Vice President of Technology and Development. "This patent is a testament to our company's strength in creating new approaches to improve the speed and accuracy of our core technology. We continue to focus our efforts towards building upon each achievement and uncovering new ways to improve the accuracy, speed, convenience and security of our biometric solutions."

"This most recent patent is another step in protecting our rich portfolio of intellectual property, which enhances the overall value of our company," added Mike DePasquale, President and CEO of BIO-key. "Combined with our superior performance as validated by the recent NIST (National Institute of Standards & Technology) test results, and our many successful deployments in both government and commercial applications, BIO-key is well positioned to capitalize on the growing need for fast, accurate and convenient identification solutions."
