ImageWare Launches IWS EPI Suite v6 Internationally; Now Available in Six Languages
San Diego, United States

ImageWare(R) Systems, Inc. (AMEX:IW), a leading global developer of identification, biometric and digital imaging software, today announced that the English edition of IWS(TM) EPI(TM) Suite v6, is now available in: German, French, Spanish, Simplified Chinese and Arabic. IWS EPI Suite is the Company's industry leading off-the-shelf photo ID software. With the addition of these languages, IWS EPI Suite offers users throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia and the Middle East, the flexibility and robustness North American users have enjoyed for years.

"Security is a global concern and the beginning of any security program starts with a secure photo ID -- preferably one that stores biometric data for identity verification," said Jim Miller, ImageWare's chairman and CEO. "With the release of IWS EPI Suite in German, French, Spanish, Arabic and Simple Chinese, we have removed the language barrier, enabling organizations worldwide to use the best photo ID software available to create and manage basic-to-complex, secure identification with biometrics in the enterprise, government, law enforcement, and healthcare markets, among others."

IWS EPI Suite is the leading photo ID software solution that enables users to easily create, manage and produce simple-to-complex secure identification, with biometrics. With its smart face finding technology, IWS EPI Suite automatically locates the face; centers, crops and enhances the image to ensure every ID card is consistent and professional looking. Customized camera drivers automatically capture images and populate the database, increasing the speed and efficiency of the card enrollment process. Images can include digital photos, fingerprints, signatures and more. Users can even have multiple images and multiple cards per person without the need to re-enter personalization data.

Powerful printing and encoding capabilities enable users to encode biometrics into smart chips, bar codes and magnetic stripes inline with the printing process decreasing card production time. IWS EPI Suite supports the encoding of biometrics and other data into PDF417 and Datastrip 2D bar codes, which can act as portable databases enabling users to deploy highly secure and reliable, high-volume applications within their specific industry.

Additionally, IWS EPI Suite can be used as an access control application, leveraging its guard station feature to conduct visual verification. Users simply swipe the card through a serial card reader, which will then allow an authorized guard to instantly view the cardholder's photo and card status on a computer monitor for positive identity verification.

Availability:

Language specific editions of IWS EPI Suite will ship in October 2004 and will be available through authorized IWS EPI Suite distributors.
