Composite Image Technology
IQ Biometrix launches FACES 4.0, a version of its composite image technology. FACES 4.0 includes an expanded database of 4,400 facial features, allowing the creation of millions of different images. The new database includes: three-tone hair features; facial markings such as piercings, moles, scars and tattoos; and new Latin, Africa-American and Asian components. FACES 4.0 also offers an improved interface and ability to export images in JPEG format to use in police bulletins, advisories and Web sites. Zoom and position tools and age progression have also been enhanced.
