Vuzix, creators of a series of augmented reality (AR) Smart Glasses like the M300 series, have partnered with KDDI [email protected] in order to allow images captured by the camera mounted on the Vuzix Smart Glasses to be transmitted securely.
KDDI [email protected] is a system that allows images and videos taken my smartphones, tablets and laptops to be sent securely over networks without compromising the image quality. The system allows for several functions, such as AR overlays with live audio and video streaming and hands-free transmission. With the partnership with Vuzix, the system now has the capability of recording and transmitting from and to Smart Glasses.
As VRFocus has reported before, Vuzix is partnering with a number of companies to supply their product for a range of commercial functions such as RFID scanning and quality control.
“Vuzix is excited to pair up our next generation M300 Smart Glasses with KDDI [email protected] remote operations supporting system to enable hands-free video transmission via Smart Glasses,” said Paul Travers, President and Chief Executive Officer at Vuzix. “Our M300 Smart Glasses feature a 13-megapixel, 1080p video and image-stabilized auto-focus camera that is ideal for relaying high-quality video content remotely in the field.”
Vuzix will be demonstrating how the new system works on the M300 Smart Glasses at the KDDI booth at CeBIT, a technology expo on Hannover, Germany on 20th March through to 24th March 2017.
