Visiphor Integration & Facial Recognition Software Sets a New Standard in Post-Secondary Learning

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - July 8, 2008) - Visiphor Corporation (OTCBB: VISRF) (TSX-V: VIS) (XETRA: IGYA) ("Visiphor") announces that, through a wholly owned subsidiary, it has contributed a suite of software applications valued at $775,000 to the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) for use in its Crime and Intelligence Analysis Program.

In the fall of 2007, BCIT launched a new option, Crime and Intelligence Analysis (CIA), for those pursuing a Bachelor of Technology degree in Forensic Investigation. The program is the first of its kind in Canada and seeks to meet increasing demand for crime and intelligence analysts in the fields of law enforcement, business and security.

"Visiphor is very pleased to be a CIA program partner with BCIT," commented Visiphor CEO, Roy Trivett. "BCIT's decision to implement Visiphor's advanced integration and facial recognition technology into the school's curriculum further validates the applicability of Visiphor's solutions to the law enforcement community both today and into the future. Providing licenses of our flagship products supports the expanded use of Visiphor's information sharing and biometric solutions within the law enforcement, justice and security sectors."

"Visiphor software will be used at BCIT to train a new generation of crime and intelligence practitioners, and will serve to raise the bar of analytic performance across Canada," says Alex Tyakoff, Program Coordinator for the Crime and Intelligence Analysis program and a former law enforcement officer. "We're thrilled to have a Vancouver-based company support cutting-edge training at BCIT."

Visiphor's integration software and its proprietary facial recognition technology are already being used in the current term classes to showcase the latest technology available in the field.
