The maker of the Moverio® augmented reality (AR) smart glasses platform, Epson, is partnering with Spinar America to make the new work environments simpler for professionals. Both the companies are working on highly innovative and easy-to-use tools for seamless AR remote assistance and collaboration experiences.
The platform will allow businesses to let a remote expert see what a local technician sees and provide real-time visual guidance by projecting it right onto the technician’s field of view using Epson Moverio AR smart glasses and Spinar America’s “Remote Vision®” SaaS product with Zoom video conferencing.
“Right now, businesses are in need of new communication practices and innovative productivity tools to collaborate effectively when employees can’t be in the same location,” stated Kevin Weafer, CEO, Spinar America, Inc.
“The ‘Remote Vision™’ and Epson Moverio solution goes a step beyond usual teleconferencing to provide a unique avenue for rich work and collaboration experiences including remote assistance and on-site inspections that can improve overall business operations,” he added.
Utilizing Epson’s state of the art Si-OLED display technology, Moverio smart glasses will enable professionals to view the Remote Vision interface, powered by Zoom, along with instructions and photos sent through the chat box on a wearable display that diminishes any visual obstruction. The Moverio smart glasses allow for a hands-free approach while working through a built-in camera that helps the users to collaborate more efficiently from remote locations.
“Businesses are evolving at a faster rate to stay ahead and accommodate the needs of today’s workforce, incorporating new remote assistance tools into day-to-day processes to improve communication over the long haul,” said Remi Del Mar, Senior Product Manager, Digital Experiences, Augmented Reality & Commercial Display Solutions at Epson America, Inc.
“We are excited to work with Spinar America to help bridge the gap between countries, cultures, and borders through hands-free communication. By harnessing the power of AR for real-time collaboration, companies are able to excel in the ‘new normal.’”
