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 FORGERY PROOF. 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 Care Identification. 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 costs." 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."
