ARLINGTON, Va., DEFENDING CYBERSPACE '99, Sept. 13 /PRNewswire/ --
Instant Holographic Imaging, Inc. (IHI) and Information Spectrum, Inc. (ISI)
today announced a Teaming Agreement that will bring a new generation of
Forgery Proof identification cards and documents to the high growth security
industry. These new applications will result from the merge of IHI's patented
Instant Holographic Technology and ISI's proven expertise in systems
engineering and integration.
IHI's Core Patents cover the optical geometry to create One Step Multiple
Exposure Holograms. In effect, these are Personalized Holographic Optical
Memory Chips. The chips record "Read Only" stored data. Initial applications
include Biometrics, or the Visual Identification & Recognition of ID
Card/Smart Card holders. The technology renders documentation virtually
These Unique Chips can also be programmed to include a wide array of
custom security options such as: Finger Prints, Bar Codes, Encryption Codes,
Medical History, Agency or Corporate Logo Identification, and Covert Features
devised to meet project specifications. IHI's Optical Memory Chip can be
programmed from Photographic or Computer Generated Digital Sources (LCD)
either locally or remotely, and can function from a Visual Interface, Hardware
(Reader) Interface or both. Apart from Driver's Licenses, Credit and Smart
Cards, the technique is designed for such other uses as: National
Identification Cards, Social Security Cards, Passports, Visas, EBT and Health
IHI's Patented Technology has evolved over nearly three decades of
research and development, by IHI's President, Jeff Allen and Chief Scientist,
Britton Zabka, who were involved with many of holography's significant
breakthroughs before joining forces to launch Instant Holographic Imaging,
Inc. in 1997.
IHI's Technology, according to Jeff Allen, "reduces the time to produce
custom holograms from hours to just a few seconds, and introduces an economy
of scale to mass markets that improves quality while significantly lowering
Britton Zabka's sense is that. . . "IHI's proven ability to create a
cutting edge technology, whose speed, versatility and economy can produce a
superior result, will open markets to applications thought to be
unapproachable before, and will also provide product performance and
functionality that is limited only by our imagination."
Information Spectrum's (ISI) International Reputation has established it
as an industry leader in Secure Personal Identification Products and Systems.
Their client list includes 13 Departments of the United States Government, and
26 Governments world wide. ISI's highly regarded Technology Applications
Group is responsible for developing the Integrated Card Production System ...
a family of Identification Card personalization equipment that utilizes and
bundles select and unique advanced emerging technologies into integrated
turnkey solutions for its clients' highly specialized security needs.
ISI Executive Vice President, Bill Alsbrooks, lauded his company's
association with IHI adding, "The combination of ISI's background, experience
and management capabilities coupled with IHI's Holographic Technological
Security Breakthrough and past holographic expertise will create a formidable
presence in this rapidly growing security market."
