Vuzix Announces Further Enhancements to its Zoom and Webex Connector Applications for its Smart Glasses Specifically for Emergency Rooms, Medical Response and First Responders
Zoom and Webex video conferencing applications from Vuzix provide COVID-19 business continuity support through one-to-one and one-to-many video calling
ROCHESTER, N.Y., July 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI), ("Vuzix" or, the "Company"), a leading supplier of Smart Glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technology and products, today announced the availability of enhanced Zoom and Webex Connector applications for its M-Series Smart Glasses based on feedback from Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses medical users who have been live-streaming surgery with it or using it in emergency rooms and ICUs to treat patients.
In the emergency room or ICU, where every second counts, smart glasses users will now be able to join Webex meetings using a "re-dial" to simply join recent meetings without requiring a new meeting URL or meeting ID, including voice control for hands-free operation. Users can also customize their Webex welcome screens to remove unused buttons and to match their workflow. Other upgrades to the Zoom and Webex smart glasses connector software applications include the ability for users to optimize the video from the 4K, 13MP phase detect auto focus camera of the M400 Smart Glasses by zooming in or out during video calls and lightening or darkening their outgoing video, among other feature enhancements.
"Our M400 Smart Glasses continue to grow in acceptance and use cases across telemedicine, healthcare and now the emergency room and ICU. We are pleased to announce the availability of these advanced features and upgrades to our Zoom and Webex connector applications, and look forward to further augmenting our smart glasses platform based on user feedback in the field," said Paul Travers, Vuzix President and Chief Executive Officer.
Both connector applications for Vuzix M400 users are available now for purchase on the Vuzix App Store [https://www.vuzix.com/appstore/app/zoom-for-smart-glasses]. Both apps require/utilize Zoom or Webex user accounts to function, including Zoom for Healthcare, which also requires a HIPAA/PIPEDA-compliant conferencing subscription.
