BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwire - October 21, 2008) - View Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: VSYM), a leading homeland defense solutions provider, announced today that the ViewScan Concealed Weapons Detection Portal System was selected for the fourth time by T&M Protection Resources for use at the Clinton Global Initiative in New York which took place at the end of September 2008. Seven units were deployed for this event. View's supplementary screening product, the LAW Handheld Metal Detector, was also utilized and View Systems personnel were onsite to assist with the operation of the units.

According to their website, the Clinton Global Initiative is a "non-partisan catalyst for action, bringing together a community of global leaders to devise and implement innovative solutions to some of the world's most pressing challenges" ( A series of distinguished guests were present at this by-invitation-only event including Former President William J. Clinton, John McCain, George Bush Sr., Tom Brokaw, George Stephanopoulos, Bono, Donna Karan, Madeleine Albright, Ashley Judd, Michael Douglas, Wyclef Jean, Lance Armstrong and the leaders of a variety of nations.

ViewScan is fast becoming the choice concealed weapons detection system in the U.S. as well as internationally. Especially attractive are the biometric fingerprint scanning and ID reading features which may be integrated with the unit.

T&M is our exclusive partner for placing our security screening devices at distinguished events like this one. Their expertise and training come from the government's premier law enforcement and protection services. We are pleased that ViewScan was selected yet again to be the key security screening device due to its non-contact imaging / hands-off screening, positive ID integration, and rapid throughput; the ViewScan is 4-5 times faster than its leading competitors.
