Vuzix Announces General Availability of M400C Smart Glasses
ROCHESTER, N.Y., Nov. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI), ("Vuzix" or, the "Company"), a leading supplier of Smart Glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technology and products, today announced that its Vuzix M400C™ smart glasses are now available for customer orders in the US, Canada, UK, EU and Japan. Vuzix M400C smart glasses list for $1299.99 and interested customers should contact the Company sales department directly.
Vuzix M400C smart glasses use the same proven form factor as the Company's flagship M400 smart glasses and come equipped with an autofocus HD camera capable of streaming 1080p video at 60 fps, crisp OLED display, noise canceling microphone, voice control, speaker, buttons and touchpad, all built to IP67 standards. The M400C also mounts to all M-Series mounting accessories. Unlike Vuzix M400™ smart glasses, the M400C is not a standalone computing device and is instead designed to function as a USB-C peripheral that can attach to a portable computer or smartphone supporting USB-C DisplayPort Alt Mode.
Vuzix M400C smart glasses offer multiple differentiators. For high security environments, the M400C causes no IT overhead as it ties directly into clients' already approved mobile ecosystem. It also facilitates device consolidation through control of phones, hand-held devices or other external equipment. The M400-C does not employ a separate battery as it is completely powered by the device it is tethered to, and at 68 grams, it weighs a small fraction of other comparable wearable devices that are on the market.
"The M400C is the ultimate peripheral," said Paul Travers, President and Chief Executive Officer at Vuzix. "It works with dedicated technology or other devices, and many Android phones with USB-C DisplayPort Alt Mode. The M400C represents the ideal replacement for external or hand-held monitors, cameras or other recording devices or 2-way audio devices. We are thrilled to add this product to our existing family of smart glasses solutions."
