CORAL SPRINGS, Florida, September 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Today, FinancialNewsMedia.com reports on Product Launches, Corporate
Happenings and News Updates for leading Biometric, Internet and Computer
companies in the Technology Sector: NXT-ID, Inc. (OTCQB: NXTD), Intel Corp.
(NYSE: INTC), Sony Corporation (NYSE: SNE), Facebook (NASDAQ: FB) and Dell
Inc. (NASDAQ: DELL).
NXT-ID, Inc. (OTCQB: NXTD) Headline: Biometric Company NXT-ID, Inc. Launches
Pilot Program for Palm Bay, FL Police Department. NXT-ID, a biometrics
company focused on the growing no-commerce market, recently announced its
whole subsidiary, 3D-ID, LLC, has commenced a pilot program with the Palm Bay,
Florida Police Department to evaluate its 3D FaceMatch biometric facial
recognition identification systems. The identification management system uses
unique and patented FaceMatch 3D technology that precisely senses shapes. The
comprised unique shape information is compressed into a small 3D biometric
template with a 3D shape signature of the face and the face is then
immediately compared to the other templates in the database.
The pilot program is expected to expand to include more law enforcement
agencies connected to 3D-ID's BioCloud, which will improve identification of
previously booked individuals from multiple law enforcement agencies searching
from a common 3D database. Plans for expansion also include the capture of
faces from surveillance cameras, video and from mobile devices using 3D-ID's
MobileBio technologies currently under development. John Blackledge, Deputy
Chief of the Palm Bay Police Department, said, "3D facial recognition is an
important technology innovation that will give law enforcement the upper hand
in accurately and rapidly identify criminals. 3D-ID provides a new technology
platform that allows law enforcement to make positive identification without
the intrusiveness of conventional police methods."

FNM's Spotlight Article on Today's Biometrics Technology: The future of
technological surveillance is fast approaching - and we are doing far too
little to prepare ourselves. Last week, thanks in part to documents that I
and the Electronic Privacy Information Center obtained under the Freedom of
Information Act, the American public learned that the Department of Homeland
Security is making considerable progress on a computerized tool called the
Biometric Optical Surveillance System. The system, if completed, will use
video cameras to scan people in public (or will be fed images of people from
other sources) and then identify individuals by their faces, presumably by
cross-referencing databases of driver's license photos, mug shots or other
facial images cataloged by name... ...The Department of Homeland Security is
not the only agency developing facial-surveillance capacities. The Federal
Bureau of Investigation has spent more than $1 billion on its Next Generation
Identification program, which includes facial-recognition technology. This
technology is expected to be deployed as early as next year and to contain at
least 12 million searchable photos. The bureau has partnerships with at least
seven states that give the agency access to facial-recognition-enabled
databases of driver's license photos. Read the entire article at
Intel Corp. (NYSE: INTC) is preparing to reveal a Pocket Avatars app for iOS
and Android that will leverage facial recognition technology to allow its
users to send messages through 3D avatars. The app will use the camera on a
smartphone or tablet to track facial expressions while an individual talks.
Based on the gathered information, the app will then map them onto an avatar.
Avatars to choose from include cartoon characters, movie or TV personalities,
famous athletes, musicians, team mascots or pets.
Sony Corporation (NYSE: SNE) has disclosed that its new platform, PlayStation
4, will include a camera with the ability to use voice navigation and facial
recognition. The company will reveal further details about the technology at a
later date, but consumers can expect similarties to Xbox's Kinect, which has
the capacity to recognize voice commends and the faces of gamers.
Last week, Facebook (NASDAQ: FB) revealed its intentions to add most of its 1
billion-plus members' profile pictures to its facial recognition database. The
move would improve its "Tap-Suggest" feature, which uses facial recognition
technology to enhance the process of users tagging friends who appear in
pictures posted on the social network. The technology works by identifying
faces in recently uploaded pictures by comparing them to pictures users have
already been tagged in.
Earlier this week, Dell (NASDAQ: DELL) announced improvements to its channel
partner programs. The improvements include software-specific enhancements to
its PartnerDirect program through four new software competencies, as well as
near service provider and referral programs. The Dell PartnerDirect program
has always eyed enabling and promoting hardware sales for Dell's partners.
Beginning this past year, Dell has begun to execute an aggressive strategy to
build scalable enterprise software offerings into its solution portfolio.
Dell's software division is one of the largest software companies in the
world, boasting a $1.2 billion business selling to 90 percent of Fortune 1000
