Epson’s new Moverio BT-40 and BT-40S augmented reality (AR) smart glasses are designed to deliver high-quality AR viewing experience with maximum comfort. Epson uses Si-OLED technology in the new Moverio solutions for a wider field of view (FOV), full HD 1080p display resolution, high contrast, improved connectivity, and an easier-to-wear design.
“These new Moverio models bring advanced image quality in a binocular display with improved comfort and wearability to the rapidly increasing markets where we are seeing AR adoption grow, including industrial field service and front-line applications such as remote assistance and accessibility usage scenarios,” said Remi Del Mar, senior product manager for digital experiences, augmented reality and commercial display solutions at Epson America Inc. “As a pioneer in this space, we look forward to seeing how these new smart glasses are implemented by customers.”
With a 34-deg. field-of-view at a comfortable position for the eyes, the Moverio BT-40 and BT-40S deliver a unique heads-up, hands-free experience with higher resolution equivalent to viewing a 120-in. screen from a distance of 15 ft.
The new headset design improves weight distribution and optional nose pads can enhance comfort. An up to 500,000:1 contrast ratio allows unused display space to appear transparent and an improved aesthetic design offers glasses-style form factor and optional dark shades. The binocular design offers a see-through Si-OLED display.
Equipped with USB Type-C connectivity for a range of compatible (must support DisplayPort Alt Mode) smartphones, tablets and computers, the Moverio BT-40 smart glasses offer an easy-to-use, plug-and-play solution that can also be managed easily with the free Moverio Link app. With a large, high-resolution second display only viewable by the wearer, the Moverio BT-40 also offers privacy and comfort for business users working from home, at the office and public spaces.
The new Moverio BT-40S also includes the option of an Intelligent Controller running Android 9.0 that supports Google Mobile Services (GMS) for custom software integration. Featuring an integrated touchscreen, customized user interfaces, expandable memory up to 2TB, IPx2 rating for durability, and Google Play compatibility, the controller has been tailor-made for a range of commercial applications. Additional controller features include built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, compass, accelerometer, gyroscope, 13-megapixel AF camera, flashlight, noise cancelling microphone and audio jack, and a high-performance rechargeable battery with up to five hours.
Moverio BT-40 and BT-40S smart glasses are available for pre-order and will be available on Amazon and through Epson’s distribution in Q2 for $579 and $999 MSRP, respectively. For additional information, visit www.epson.com/moverio.
