Wash. state extends camera contract

Washington Extends Digimarc's Licensing Contract

Washington State Department of Licensing has awarded Digimarc a $10 million contract extension, through which the company will provide recently available secure identification products.

Under the three-year contract extension, the Beaverton, Ore. company will provide its Digimarc Camera Tower, which debuted in June. The company will rollout the camera product in all 65 of the Department of Licensing's driver licensing offices.

Washington is Digimarc's third customer for the camera tower system. The state of Oregon and the West African nation of Ghana also have contracts with Digimarc that include the camera tower, according to a Digimarc spokesman.

The Washington contract also calls for the use of Digimarc's IDMarc digital watermark security feature for drivers' licenses. In addition, the contract calls for software upgrades across the state's driver license enrollment and issuance system.
