Epson Moverio Partners With Atheer to Deliver Remote Augmented Reality Collaboration Platform

AiR software suite to be demonstrated on smart eyewear platform at Enterprise Wearable Technology Summit East

(Epson: Atlanta) -- Epson America Inc., providers of the Moverio augmented reality smart eyewear platform, has announced a partnership with Atheer, creators of Augmented Interactive Reality (AiR) software suite, to deliver remote expert collaboration, rapid task flow deployment, and on-the-go task documentation on the Moverio platform for enterprise applications.

Optimized for the Moverio smart eyewear platform, the award-winning Atheer AiR Suite Enterprise solution enables deskless professionals to view checklists and step-by-step procedures on the glasses with hands-free interaction using gestures, voice, and head motion. In addition, the suite enables professionals to communicate with remote experts via video to resolve problems quickly. The AiR Suite also features a simple drag-and-drop authoring tool to create procedures and task flows optimized for the glasses, eliminating development time.

“Our AiR Suite for Enterprise on the Epson Moverio platform can deliver unbounded collaboration, management and rapid task flow creation and deployment to ‘deskless’ professionals in the industrial space,” says Ryan Fink, vice president of business development at Atheer. “By leveraging the robust features of Moverio smart eyewear, we can offer an efficient wearable computing solution that makes hands-on work easier and safer.”

“Our collaboration with Atheer enables a compelling solution for enterprises that is ready to be implemented today,” notes Michael Levya, product manager of new ventures for Epson America. “This partnership with Atheer is part of our ongoing strategy to leverage the best smart eyewear software available to take full advantage of all the capabilities of the Moverio platform.”

Epson will demonstrate the AiR Suite for Enterprise on its Moverio Pro BT-2000, a feature-rich smart headset optimized for industrial applications, at Enterprise Wearable Technology Summit East. The show runs June 16–17, 2016, at The W Hotel in Atlanta. In addition, demonstrations of the new Epson Moverio BT-300, which is shipping this fall, will also be available for attendees.

The Moverio Pro BT-2000 smart headset is an extremely rugged and durable commercially available platform built specifically for industrial use. The headset enables workers in various locations to see exactly what their counterparts are seeing to provide informed support and training. In addition, the Moverio Pro BT-2000 incorporates sensing and connectivity features that enable a wide range of cutting-edge augmented reality and other applications for manufacturing, logistics, maintenance, education, and other fields.
