Epson Moverio Partners with Atheer on Augmented Interactive Reality
ATLANTA, Ga., June 15, 2016—Epson, providers of the Moverio augmented reality smart eyewear platform, today announced a partnership with Atheer, creators of the AiR (Augmented interactive Reality) 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 or 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,” said Ryan Fink, VP, Business Development, 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,” said Michael Levya, product manager, 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 at The W Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia. In addition, demonstrations of the new Epson Moverio BT-300, shipping this fall, will also be available for attendees.
