Simi Valley, CA - April 29, 2009 - Topaz Systems, Inc., a global leader in electronic signature technology, announces today the introduction of the SigLite® Color 4.3 pad with a full-color, 480 x 272 widescreen, backlit TFT display, electronic inking, interactive LCD display with navigation hot spots, and bundled complete eSign, interactive, and display software and IP.

As the newest member of the broadest eSign product line in the industry, the new SigLite Color 4.3 is also by far the best value in its industry class. Port-powered in both HID, and Virtual-Serial USB versions, the Color 4.3 also sports a small, thin and attractive footprint, optimized large handrest for left- or right-handed signers, dual-vertical pen holders, snap-in travel pen and tether storage, and sloped ergonomic signing surface with easy slide-in screen protector. From the backlit high-resolution color widescreen display, to the superb Topaz® biometric signature capture, bundled software, and IP and authentication, this new pad sets the standard for low-cost value in a color pad. Its bright, responsive full-color TFT LCD is particularly suited to highlighting and displaying contract information and signatures in a guided step-by-step manner including color cues, and also serving full-color ads and promotional material in customer-facing applications. The SigLite Color 4.3 further demonstrates Topaz's leadership position in electronic signature technology, and commitment to a base that is rapidly approaching a million pads.

"The new SigLite Color 4.3 is the latest in our family of interactive LCD pads designed around a new generation of high-performance displays and secure electronics." said Anthony Zank, President and CEO of Topaz. "What makes it even better is the unmatched price-performance of this product, including broad bundled IP and patent coverage, O/S independent software tools including Active-X, .NET, Java, and C Library toolkits, full line of desktop and web plug-in support, applications, free support, and unlimited updates that have come with every Topaz pad since day one."
