Vuzix to Showcase Business Continuity Enterprise Solutions and Award-Winning Next Generation AR Smart Glasses at CES 2021
ROCHESTER, N.Y., Jan. 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI), ("Vuzix" or, the "Company"), a leading supplier of Smart Glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technology and products, announced today it is pleased to report a presence at this year's Consumer Electronics Show, which is being held virtually this week from January 12 to January 14, 2021 due to restrictions in place on large gatherings and travel in the United States and most parts of the world.
One of the Company's main focuses at CES this year is supporting medical, industrial and enterprise customers that have and continue to adjust to new ways of doing business that are in many respects becoming the future of how things will get done. Using smart glasses is not just about solving short-term COVID-19 safety problems, but also about how to conduct business more efficiently by cutting travel costs, improving worker accuracy, helping with training, reducing field services and improving bottom lines.
During 2020, amidst the global pandemic Vuzix delivered record breaking smart glasses product revenues as large and small organizations turned to Vuzix Smart Glasses as a successful tool to help combat operational challenges that have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and improve performance. Vuzix believes that broad adoption will continue to expand as more organizations see the wide array of benefits smart glasses offer. Over the past year, Vuzix has introduced two new products, the Vuzix M4000 and the Vuzix Blade Upgraded Smart Glasses, onboarded new independent software vendors and extended its global footprint to bring the Company's industry-leading smart glasses to new countries around the world. Vuzix also added support for a variety of new software offerings including popular peer-to-peer video meeting platforms such as Zoom, Zoom for Healthcare, Webex Teams and Skype for Business, all of which are now being used to support thousands of Vuzix Smart Glasses in the field within a growing list of market verticals and use cases spanning healthcare, field service, audit and inspection and manufacturing.
Vuzix will be holding meetings with interested resellers, OEMs and partners to discuss its next generation smart glasses (NGSG), a recipient of CES 2021 innovation awards in three categories: Computer Peripherals & Accessories, Portable Media Players & Accessories and Wearable Technologies. Vuzix NGSG will use the world's smallest microLED-based projection engine combined with Vuzix ultrathin waveguides to support industry-leading solutions for the Company and its third-party OEMs.
