Net-X Solutions releases ANSI/NIST compliant biometric viewer for Android
By Justin Lee
June 3, 2015 -
Net-X Solutions Ltd announced it has globally launched the world’s first ANSI/NIST compliant biometric viewer for over 6,000 Android devices.
The biometric viewer has been available to users in the United States, Canada and United Kingdom since March 2015, but Net-X has decided to expand its release globally following the success of its recent trial.
Agencies who regularly deal with biometrics use ANSI/NIST files to both transmit and receive critical biometric data relating to individuals.
These agencies can now use the IDX NIST Viewer to access this biometric data from the majority of Android-based tablets and phones.
“The release of our NIST Viewer product for Android devices cements our commitment to developing biometric products for the Android platform, and will see us releasing a number of our core APIs, including WSQ fingerprint compression, NIST import/export, and fingerprint identity services for this platform in the upcoming months,” said James Jones, director at Net-X Solutions Ltd.
The COTS product is free for all policing, government and educational institutions, and expands on its existing user base for the Windows version of the same product.
Look at the Wiki.... for: Wavelet Scalar Quantization algorithm
They actually link to Aware BUT...the link is dead. Given Awares recently ended contract with the Navy, I agree that they are capable of participating in a project like this if the FBI decides someday to proceed with it. Nice find Sandy.
Ming Hsieh founded the biometric company, formerly known as Cogent Systems(COGT) in 1990. He was the majority shareholder and assumed the roles of CEO and COB. He was born in China and he transferred to USC's engineering program at age 24. The man struggled to speak English and his shareholders struggled even harder to understand him. But despite that, he presided over conference calls and subjected himself to the onslaught of analysts and shareholders every quarter. Cogent was purchased by 3M in 2010. Ming Hsieh has courage.
In addition, for years, I have mocked the management of a biometric penny stock company of much lesser calibre known as BioKey (BKYI) . Despite the mockery, I must admit that the long time CEO Mike DePasquale, does summon the courage, or some may called it audacity, to face the wrath of his beleaguered shareholders quarter after quarter.
Why did Aware Mgt choose to end conference calls and leave it's minority shareholders wandering in the dark? I believe we can only draw one conclusion, they are cowards.
Only a coward would hide behind ambiguous pap like this and not make themselves available to questions from the minority shareholders of a publicly traded company. Five sentences, when read individually say nothing but 'FORNICATE YOU'.
Rick Moberg, Aware's co-chief executive officer and chief financial officer, said "Quarterly revenue and earnings fluctuate based on project wins and the timing of delivery of licenses and services for those projects. Financial results this quarter are a reflection of these fluctuations. Moreover, we are moving through a transition in which we are working on lessening our dependence on government markets by moving into new commercial markets. Commercial biometrics markets represent a potential area of growth for us, but it is too early to predict whether we will be successful in these markets. We are optimistic they could develop into meaningful sources of revenue."

Sentiment: Strong Buy
Just for the sake of clarity in the upcoming SLAP lawsuit you're threatening FD with, could you please define 'the vast majority' that disagrees with FD? Because the ThumbsUp/ThumpsDown voting system on this YMB seems to contradict your claim. TIA
I have Cascio's contact info. Can you post Rosenthals?
Perhaps Brian Cascio, who is handling the 'Review of Aware Filings' at the SEC, can get the answer to these questions if we ask him to.
A simple keyword search of 'TQ Delta, LLC' has really got me steaming. Turns out they are suing Comcast, Verizon, Dish TV, Time Warner, Cox, Direct TV and 2Wire.
Another poster on this board has been alerting us for years that the only patents TQ owns are the ones they bought from Aware for $16M. He contends they were they crown jewels of the company.
TQ Delta LLC is a Delaware corporation and according to “How can I file a Delaware LLC without listing the owner's name in Delaware public records?” We will never find out who the beneficial owners are.
Given the secretive history of this company and the scant but negative information available on the web about the business practices of the COB, I can't help but suspect that the 'other poster' was right about the value of those patents and whether or not minority shareholders were treated fairly.
Lots of FP software claims to store an algorithmic representation of the enrollees FP rather than the FP itself. But legacy FP cards scanned into a searchable digital format do have the actual FP's. If the hacked OPM database contained such images this could be devastating.
Imagine what our enemies, or 'friends' for that matter, could do with a 3D printer combined with the actual FP images of powerful USG employees. Blackmail? Criminal forensic evidence? Imagine the most horrid, lurid rape/torture/murder with indisputable FP found all over the crime scene and murder weapon?
US law enforcement is already in trouble for using questionable forensic evidence such as fibers, to convict suspects. Imagine if it got out that FP evidence used primarily to convict in past cases could come into question?
Just composing this post makes me wonder if this hasn't been done already to some poor blastard.
