Vuzix has announced that its flagship M400 Smart Glasses now supports the hands-free voice control feature and is now fully compatible with the Zoom for Healthcare, Skype for Business and Zoom. The company has rolled out the latest update to the Vizux Connector and Vizux M400 OS, which enables the users to use their voice to navigate, control and configure these applications while using the M400 hands-free mode.
Chief Executive Officer and President of Vuzix, Paul Travers said, “The feedback from the healthcare community was for increased hands-free operations and we’re pleased to report that we have added additional functionality for our Skype for Business, Zoom and Zoom for Healthcare customers that will allow them to leverage their voice and the voice recognition engine of the Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses to deliver hands-free operations to users in the field.”
“Business growth in the current quarter at Vuzix thus far continues strong and has not slowed down, partially driven by the need for solutions that address COVID-19 related challenges. On the healthcare front, access to facilities such as hospitals and senior care homes that need remote eyes for doctors, care providers, repair persons, and medical equipment support has become very restricted,” Paul Travers further added.
“On the enterprise side, customers are accelerating adoption and deployment of our smart glasses in lieu of flying engineers onsite to support technician training, manufacturing operations or resident technical staff. Most industry experts feel this demand surge will continue for some time, perhaps years, while the world manages through this crisis. Smart glasses, such as the M400, especially when they can be used hands-free, are excellent tools for this new reality,” Chief Executive Officer and President of Vuzix Paul Travers further added in his statement.
