ROCHESTER, NY –  Vuzix® Corporation, a leading supplier of Smart Glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technologies and products for the consumer and enterprise markets, is pleased to announce that General Electric, an American multinational conglomerate successfully piloted Vuzix Basics Video (VBV) within GE’s Aviation operations.

A hands-free, out-of-box solution that allows engineers and technicians to communicate in real-time, both voice and video, is important to GE.  The time spent exchanging documents, images and data can slow down critical repairs, approvals and collaboration, which means higher cost and lost opportunity.  “A wearable remote telepresence solution is a great fit for a broad set of use cases, which allows us to eliminate delays in communication creating big ROI.  Our pilot has shown there is immediate value when engineers and technicians can communicate live, while working hands-free and heads-up.  We can see a wide range of use cases across GE businesses and look forward to expanding our use cases.  It is important that our technical teams can communicate in a manner that we believe is afforded by the Vuzix M300.” commented John Klingler, Advanced Manufacturing Digital Leader, GE Digital.

Vuzix Basics Video is built to work right out of the box: click, connect, collaborate.  “A lot of my time at GE was spent driving the Digital Transformation, and eliminating barriers to real-time communication between the field techs, manufacturing teams and engineers is the shortest path to harvesting big returns on investment and improving overall performance.  Feedback from GE and our other pilot customers validates Vuzix’ value proposition; that the ability to put the Vuzix M300 into productive use, quite literally in minutes, is transformational.  We are excited to hear of GE’s success, and are looking forward to expanding our relationship in the weeks and months ahead,” said Paul Boris, COO of Vuzix.
