BioFoundry® SDK Selected by Tygart Technology, Inc. for Their Flagship Product, MatchBox™

SOMERSET, NJ--(Marketwire - June 12, 2007) - BioFoundry®, a division of OSS Nokalva, Inc., announced today that Tygart Technology, Inc. has selected the BioFoundry® Software Development Kit (SDK) for their flagship product, MatchBox.

MatchBox, a digital media intelligence and identification system, uses the BioFoundry® SDK for its multi-modal, standards-based, Biometric Services component. The Biometric Services component handles the input and enrollment of physical characteristics such as face, voice, and fingerprint, and supports database searches using biometrics.

"The use of the BioFoundry® SDK has not only provided a uniform, standardized interface for all biometric components used by MatchBox, it has also helped us significantly reduce development time, resulting in reduced cost and shorter time to market," noted Douglas J. Kirby, Chief Executive Officer of Tygart Technology, Inc.

The BioFoundry® SDK is a comprehensive collection of libraries and utilities that can be used by developers who want to add biometric capabilities to their applications or develop Biometric Service Providers compliant with the BioAPI standard. The BioFoundry® SDK offers a uniform programming interface that is biometrics technology and vendor neutral. Designed for rapid application development, the BioFoundry® SDK allows developers to take advantage of popular programming languages, such as Java, C/C++, .NET languages (C#, Visual Basic, etc.), VBScript, and JavaScript.

"We are delighted with Tygart's decision to use the BioFoundry® SDK for their product, MatchBox. The use of the BioFoundry® SDK in MatchBox clearly demonstrates its value, flexibility, and ease of integration," commented Bharat Shah, Deputy Director of Biometrics at OSS Nokalva.

The BioFoundry® SDK is available for a free 30-day trial download at
