MINNETONKA, Minn., and JERSEY CITY, N.J.
Digital Biometrics Inc. (DBI), a biometrics systems engineering and connectivity company, and Visionics Corp., a developer of facial recognition technology, announce the completion of their corporate merger. At a special shareholder meeting, DBI’s shareholders voted to merge with Visionics, effective immediately. The merged company’s name will be Visionics Corp.
