Months after the launch of the Moverio Pro BT-300, Epson is now promoting the benefits of the augmented reality smart glasses by collaborating with businesses in developing compatible applications. Joining forces with DJI, Epson and the leading maker of drones are developing applications for Moverio smart glasses that aim to improve productivity, safety, and piloting experience for hobbyists and professionals.

One of these apps, DJI Go for allows users to see first person views (FPV) from the drone camera with the help of the BT-300. Now available across Southeast Asia, particularly in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and the Philippines, the partnership between Epson and DJI is timely as businesses in the region explore the uses of drones in various aerial imaging purposes. 

“The Moverio BT-300 continues Epson’s commitment to binocular smart eyewear, real optical see-through overlay, and increased performance. We see potential for growth for industry use in the region. The Moverio has the potential to revolutionize workflow for onsite or remote operations. It adds a new dimension to professionals for improving their efficiency and accuracy at work, enabling workers to share their experience virtually or provide hands-free movement for hands-on work,” said Siew Jin Kiat, Regional General Manager (Southeast Asia), Printers and Visual Instruments Division, Epson Singapore.

Taking advantage of Epson’s very own silicon-based OLED (organic light emitting diode), the BT-300 has become the lightest see-through binocular smart glasses in the market today. The BT-300 also comes with micro projectors on each side of the eyeglasses that project transparent overlays of digital content straight to the user’s field of view upon the real-world environment.

Hands-free operability is ensured with the BT-300, thanks to its front-facing 5-megapixel HD camera and intelligent tracking sensors that detect the orientation and measurements  of the objects that are viewed. The BT-300 can take photos and videos hands-free, and comes with an LED that indicates when the camera is recording. Approximately 20% lighter and more compact than the preceding BT-200, the BT-300 integrates an Intel Atom quad-core processor, runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop, and has a stamina of up to six hours.

Augmented reality (AR) smart glasses are designed to improve efficiency at workplaces in different types of industries such as field service, healthcare, hospitality, logistics, manufacturing, and retail. Epson’s Moverio smart glasses have been deployed in various applications like guided museum tours, inventory management, learning and training, remote field services for repair assistance and troubleshooting.
