Vidyo APIs enable see-what-I-see and augmented reality applications on smart glasses platforms
HACKENSACK, N.J. , Mar 9, 2015 – VidyoWorks™ on smart glasses is an innovative solution that enables hands free video communication and collaboration for augmented reality and see-what-I-see applications. VidyoWorks delivers the only scalable video coding (SVC) platform for outstanding error resiliency and the ability to combine workflow integration, reliable performance and scalability to deliver an affordable, wearable visual engagement solution. Vuzix (NASDAQ: VUZI) is the first smart glasses maker to feature VidyoWorks on smart glasses on its enterprise-grade Vuzix M100 smart glasses.
The VidyoWorks mobile client APIs are available today for smart glasses application developers that want to embed real-time video, audio and content communication and collaboration into their applications. According to ABI Research the enterprise wearables market is exploding and expected to reach $18 billion by 2019.
“VidyoWorks opens up a whole new market for developers to create applications for hands free see-what-I-see applications on smart glasses across industries including healthcare, field service, retail, energy, and government,” said Eran Westman, CEO, Vidyo. “There is a tremendous market opportunity for these applications with augmented reality and VidyoWorks delivers reliability and scale over wireless networks, making it a market leading solution for mobile applications.”
VidyoWorks delivers best-in-class video communication experiences on the lightweight processing platforms like smart glasses. Vidyo’s patented dynamic adaptation technology works over variable wireless networks to efficiently deploy applications requiring remote expertise to see and provide guidance to field workers. With the VidyoWorks platform, smart glasses users are able to connect to video conferences with users on smart phones, tablets, desktop computers, dedicated video conferencing systems, unified communications clients, WebRTC browser based clients and workflow applications.
“The high quality viewing experience Vidyo enables builds upon our commitment to provide the best possible mobile experience,” said Paul Travers, President and CEO, Vuzix. “What sets VidyoWorks on smart glasses apart is not only the stunning visual quality Vidyo’s infrastructure can deliver, but the combination of quality, affordability and ease of use that make Vidyo the ideal platform for enterprises large and small.”
Workers at remote sites can share video of what they see with more experienced workers to better diagnose and fix problems. These video interactions can be recorded and stored as evidence that a job was performed correctly using VidyoReplay. VidyoWorks on smart glasses enables hands free video collaboration to help enterprises more efficiently utilize centralized higher-cost resources like specialists across a broad base of lower-cost and geographically dispersed field technicians. This tele-mentoring approach ensures the right expertise is applied to every job and workflow is accurately documented, while minimizing operating costs.
