EPSON’s New Moverio Augmented Reality Glasses Shined at InfoComm 2018

InfoComm is the is the largest event in North America focused on the pro-AV industry, and MarketScale was there to chat with some of the biggest names at the convention. Today we focus on Eric Mizufuka, New Ventures Manager at EPSON, and EPSON Moverio Augmented Reality Glasses that it brought with them to the event.

“We’re here showing off some new applications for our augmented reality glasses, which includes our drone FPV,” Mizufuka said.

The augmented reality glasses are solving problems when it comes to drone navigation, including screen visibility in the sun, keeping line of sight with the aircraft, and taking your hands off the controller to interact with the touch surface.

“We have shades that can clip that can lock in the light, and it actually provides a see-through 80-inch display displayed at about 16 feet. So you get a wide screen display, you get all your telemetry data in there, and you can actually see what the drone sees with a heads up, line of sight experience.  So it’s really a safer, more productive way to fly your drone,” he said.

Mizufuka explained some of their new applications for visitor experiences that allows the user to manage 15 pairs of glasses with a droid tablet, including things like campus tours, museum tours, and other visitor experiences.

“As far as augmented reality, the lighter augmented reality experiences seem to be catching on. One of the most popular downloaded applications on our Moverio apps market is a drone flight simulator where you actually see a 3D rendering, or 3D model of a pro drone that you can fly in 3d and 360 degrees in AR.”

EPSON has been in the AR space for seven years.
