ROCHESTER, N.Y., May 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI), (“Vuzix” or, the “Company”), a leading supplier of Smart Glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technology and products, announced today that Vuzix’ M400 Smart Glasses are now supported by TeamViewer Pilot, a HIPAA-compliant remote assistance solution powered by augmented reality functionality. TeamViewer Pilot enables medical professionals or enterprise technicians to connect to a remote expert using Vuzix Smart Glasses to stream to a computer or mobile device while allowing the trained expert to draw, add text, or tag real-world objects with 3D markers for reference.
With TeamViewer Pilot and the Vuzix M400, the camera of the smart glasses acts as a second set of eyes so a remote expert can see the problem and give detailed instructions on how to resolve the issue at hand to the person on-site or in the field by speaking through the audio connection or drawing on the screen. Off-site remote experts help the on-site employee or customer fix the issue by drawing and highlighting on the screen onto real-world objects, as well as adding text descriptions. The TeamViewer Pilot software allows the remote expert using an iOS or Android device to connect and support anyone with Vuzix Smart Glasses.
“We are pleased to partner with TeamViewer and be able to support TeamViewer Pilot across healthcare and enterprise with our M400 Smart Glasses,” said Paul Travers, President and Chief Executive Officer at Vuzix.
