Eric Mizufuka, product manager within New Ventures for Epson America explains:
The Epson Moverio BT-300 is a major leap forward in mobile AR smart eyewear, with its comfortable, lightweight form factor and amazing new display engine – and at a price comparable to smartphones. The transition from LCD backlit projection to Si-OLED enables higher contrast levels, a wider color gamut and true display transparency – this is a game-changing technology that will accelerate the adoption of AR glasses.
We’ve built our AR ecosystem of partners and solutions over the past five years and three commercially available products – it’s been a long journey and we’ve learned a lot. We’ve incorporated these learnings into the design of the Moverio BT-300 and are confident that this device will be the standard in the AR glasses category. In addition to pursuing new markets for our technology, we will rapidly scale in areas where we’ve had commercial success, including drone photography, remote support, AR training/maintenance, healthcare, retail, logistics and more.
