The VistaFinder Mx solution leverages the camera and head-mounted display of the Vuzix M300 Smart Glasses to overlay AR images on the user's real-time view to aid in remote support applications.

The system provides a variety of functions, including issuing operational instructions by AR through live audio and video streaming, recording of on-site video, and hands-free transmission with wearable cameras. The service is available in English, Japanese, Chinese, and Korean.
