SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 5, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- Titanium Group, Ltd. (OTCBB:TTNUF), a leading biometric and security solutions provider, today announced a distribution agreement with KOMSA Technology Development Co., Ltd., a developer and manufacturer of digital video surveillance products. Titanium Group's core ProAccess FaceGuard product will be promoted to KOMSA's existing customer base as well as banks, hotels and government agencies throughout China. In addition, KOMSA will integrate Titanium's highly accurate, secure screening face recognition technology within their products.
"KOMSA is one of the most active players in the digital surveillance arena throughout China today and garners a client list consisting of some of the most prestigious names in the banking industry in China such as Shenzhen Commercial Bank, Shenzhen China Merchants Bank and Nanjing China Construction Bank," said Jason Ma, CEO of Titanium Group, Ltd. "Our distribution agreement with KOMSA gives us access to their customer base, who we believe are ideal candidates for our biometric products and another entry into key banks, hotels and access to government contacts. In addition, we feel it is very much a synergistic relationship with KOMSA since they will be able to utilize our dynamic facial recognition technology within their very own products."
Billy Tang, Chief Operation Officer of Titanium Group, stated the company is aggressively targeting partnerships with companies where strategic relationships can be leveraged and complementary for both parties within targeted industries such as KOMSA's. The fact that Titanium's products have demonstrated strong demand after recently being commercialized is reinforced by the company's recent announcement of approximately $2 million in back orders as well as word that their newest "facial recognition engine" achieves a false positive acceptance rate of less than 0.1 percent and a verification rate of over 99.9 percent.
