Vuzix Commences Online Sales of Its MicroLED Binocular Waveguide Smart Safety Glasses

Expands Availability of Vuzix Shield for Enterprise Customers 

ROCHESTER, N.Y., April 8, 2024 /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 award-winning Vuzix Shield™ smart safety glasses are now available to the general public via Vuzix Shield initially launched against a limited fulfillment strategy, focused on developers and researchers.

Vuzix Shield represents the company's most revolutionary pair of prescription-ready AR smart safety glasses, boasting enhanced 3D optics made possible by its stereoscopic microLED (µLED) waveguide-based displays. Its high-efficiency projectors deliver a crisp, ultrabright image indoors or outside. ANSI Z87.1 safety glasses certified, with self-contained batteries, stereo HD cameras and a Qualcomm processor under the hood, Vuzix Shield is optimized for multi-hour untethered use, with stereo over-the-ear speakers for personalized audio, and noise-cancelling microphones for clear voice interactions in even harsh work environments. Because most use cases demand heads-up, hands-free use, Vuzix Shield can support voice input in 29 languages. It also comes equipped with dual swipe/tap touchpads for ultimate versatility without the need for voice commands. Using Vuzix Shield, workers can stream their view to remote experts, connect to AI workflow optimization tools, take photos, scan barcodes, and get work instructions and notifications, all with a lightweight, ergonomic form factor that's comfortable for extended wear.

A pair of autofocus HD cameras can double as a barcode scanner, supporting AI-enabled environmental awareness, real-time inputs, and feedback both on tasks and ambient workplace hazards. The device also enables remote support, providing experts with a see-what-I-see view leveraging most common teleconferencing apps. Current deployments span a range of use cases, including medical and first responder, logistics and transport, and field service and inspection. Xander, one of the Company's most notable early clients serving the deaf and hard-of-hearing community through collaborations with the Veterans Association, has already placed follow-on orders due to significant demand for their smart captioning solution.

"Though we're still working against a customer backlog, we're pleased to have increased our manufacturing capacity to support growing demand for Vuzix Shield," said Paul Travers, President and CEO of Vuzix. "As always, we aim to deliver the highest levels of customer service with our products. Vuzix Shield is unique in the market, and is the only wireless, fully integrated pair of prescription-ready smart glasses offering advanced AR capabilities in a form factor that feels great and looks amazing for front-end use."
