Sagem Morpho Selects A4Vision 3D Facial Recognition Technology for Paris Exhibition

General Public Enjoys First Exposure to A4Vision's Biometric 3D Facial Recognition

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 6, 2006 -- A4Vision Inc. today announced that Sagem Morpho, a Sagem Défense Securité subsidiary and world leader in digital fingerprint biometric recognition, is featuring A4Vision's 3D facial recognition technology at "Biometrics: the body identified," an exhibition sponsored and designed by Sagem Morpho and the Science and Industry Museum. This exhibition is running at the Science and Industry Museum in Paris through November 5, 2006. "Biometrics: the body identified" takes visitors on an entertaining and interactive voyage through the world of biometrics, from new technologies to practical applications. Visitors can test different systems and get a better grasp of the challenges of biometrics in terms of ethics, security and identity.

A4Vision's Vision Access 3D Face Reader, the world's first three-dimensional (3D) facial identification/verification reader with active feedback, is on display in live mode for public interaction. The display affords the general public the opportunity to obtain a sense of A4Vision's ease of use and speed in capturing facial images for identification and verification. Forthcoming real-world biometric applications include border and immigration control, airport security, civil identification programs, and access to transit systems and buildings.

"We are honored by this inclusion and prestigious recognition from such a renowned biometric leader as Sagem Morpho," said Grant Evans, CEO of A4Vision. "With global applications imminent for biometrics, and specifically for A4Vision's 3D facial recognition, we also applaud Sagem Morpho for its timely, notable efforts to expose and familiarize the general public with biometrics soon to be part of their lives."

A4Vision innovations in 3D data capturing and processing have produced renowned industry-leading accuracy in real-time facial recognition and tracking. A4Vision readers perform both verification and identification in real-time; accommodate variable angles, motion, and changing light conditions, including night; and provide a completely passive, non-invasive mode of identification with consistently high rates of accuracy. The Vision Access 3D Face Reader, working and displayed at Sagem Morpho's "Biometrics: the body identified" exhibition, achieves sub-second processing speeds in real-world application.

A4Vision offers 3D face recognition products through companies such as IDLink, Logitech, NTT Communications, Singapore Technologies, Securitas, SITA, Thales, and global partners Motorola, Sagem, Siemens, and Unisys.
