Vuzix to Unleash the Power of Augmented Reality and Real-Time Data Access at SAP's SAPPHIRE NOW 2013

Demonstrating Vuzix M100 Smart Glasses for Enterprise Customer Applications

NEW YORK, May 10, 2013 /CNW/ - Vuzix Corporation (TSX-V: VZX, OTC:BB: VUZI, FMB: V7X), a leading developer and supplier of smart glasses, today announced that it has been working with Paul Brison, Global Vice President Enterprise Operations Management from SAP, a global provider of enterprise application software, to develop cutting edge augmented reality (AR) applications for warehousing, in field data collection and other mobile applications. Using its award-winning M100 Smart Glasses, Vuzix will demonstrate the capabilities at SAP's SAPPHIRE NOW event on May 15th in Orlando Florida.

There will be two different demonstrations of how Smart Glasses can be integrated with the large installed base of enterprise software systems to solve problems and create efficiencies for enterprise level customers. The first demonstration will be a real-time augmented reality warehouse "picking" application. The second will be a real-time data and video collection from the factory floor to remote sites.

Vuzix President and CEO Paul Travers said, "This conference is a key gathering of enterprise level decision makers who are looking for applications that create operating efficiencies for their large organizations. We are excited to demonstrate the power of our AR and our smart glasses in helping enterprises further increase their operating performance. There are thousands of applications that can use the power of Vuzix smart glasses to fully enable AR solutions. Having the ability to run applications resident in the glasses allows real-time camera and screen updates creating instant augmentation of the user's reality. Many customers need the ability to have hands free, mobile access for collection of data and to remotely work with their database in real time. Vuzix smart glasses do a great job of facilitating these needs."

"For AR to be the most useful, all sensory input and computer generated information needs to be processed in real-time. The only way to do this effectively today is by running the applications resident in the glasses. Since the M100 is an open system that does not require an internet connection to run applications, the glasses can be used in almost any environment from the middle of the woods to a pipeline in Alaska," Travers added.

Visit the SAP SAPPHIRE NOW event May 15th in Orlando, Florida to see this exciting new technology in action. SAPPHIRE NOW is a premier business technology conference, and one of the largest SAP customer-driven conferences. The event presents a global opportunity for SAP customers to meet, interact and network with SAP and their partners from around the world.

About The Vuzix M100

The Vuzix M100 Smart Glasses are a hands free display peripheral for your smartphone or direct network connection, they have a built in color display driven by a powerful processing engine running the Android OS, an integrated head tracker and GPS for spatial and positional awareness. An integrated camera enables video recording, still image capture and opens the potential for powerful augmented reality applications. Having all this technology in a single wearable display with an open software platform that works with many already written Android apps, allows applications that are running in the glasses to perform real-time processing like augmented reality applications and since it's all resident there is no requirement to connect to the Cloud to use them.
