World Am Communications, Inc. Schedules New Product Roll Out
23 June 2004, 09:01am ET
WESTMINSTER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 23, 2004--World Am Communications, Inc. (OTCBB:WLDI) ( www.world-am.com ), whose wholly owned subsidiary, Isotec, Inc. ( www.isotecinc.com ), conceives, develops and markets state-of-the-art security systems, announced today that it has developed three new anti-tailgating portals: ATG-100, ATG-200 and ATG-300. The first two have already proved effective in tests conducted to date, and they have been approved for full production; it is anticipated they will be ready for shipping by September 15, 2004, with orders to be accepted after July 15, 2004.
Each of the models will share some common features: Video Motion Detection; Ganz Board Camera; Vari-Focal Lens; Visible Light Filtration; an upgradeable Infrared light source and Vandal/tamper-resistant housing. Each unit is designed to operate in: little or no ambient light settings; little or no incandescent light; a relatively non-reflective target area; a space allowing mounting from 8' to 15' above the floor; locations outside an inward swinging door; and situations where it is to be tuned or calibrated for the specific application site.
The ATG-100 is intended to be used in conjunction with an existing Access Control System (ACS). The ATG-100 can help to detect unauthorized "piggy-back" entry to controlled areas. This means that when only one person is authorized to enter per valid entry sequence the ATG-100 is designed to detect a tailgating event and may also alert an attendant or cause some other output to occur such as logging or photo/video surveillance of the event to be initiated. The ATG-100 has a simple logic circuit that can handle defined outputs and can be used in a fair variety of access-controlled situations. ATG-100 will also offer several accessories to aid in its successful application such as: a footprint mat to position the person trying to gain access; high contrast boundary tape to define the target area, status lights to aid users with cues to operation and to decrease false alarms along with infrared directional sensors to avoid alarms resulting from personnel leaving a secure area.

The ATG-200 is a "smarter" version of the ATG-100, intended for use where complete integrated logic for Access Control (i.e. interlock activation), directional sensing, occupancy sensing and anti-tailgating functions are desired to be controlled by a single unit. The ATG-200 may also utilize the same accessories as the ATG-100 and features customizable software that can be modified to meet customer needs.
The ATG-300 is still in development but is expected to be available for sale before the end of the year. We will report more on this new product as it is finalized and tested.
James Alexander, World Am CEO, said, "The introduction of this new product may represent the first "commodity" type product Isotec has introduced. Both the ATG-100 and 200 models are designed for use with existing or new Access Control Systems and could be used in some freestanding applications. We believe having units that can be sold by system integrators and used effectively in government and commercial applications is important to Isotec being able to obtain stable and more predictable revenue growth. Isotec has also planned some on-site testing with existing customers to evaluate their future needs and to obtain input on the existing and possible upgrade features that may be desirable for these new products. Isotec plans to file the final patent work for each of the innovations as soon as practical."
