Vuzix Smart Glasses Integrates with GoPro to Deliver HQ Video Content Creation

Vuzix® Corporation, (“Vuzix” or, the “Company”), a leading supplier of video eyewear and smart glasses products in the consumer, enterprise and entertainment markets, is pleased to announce that the company is one of the first developers to have access to the GoPro Developer Program toolkits.

GoPro manufactures wearable cameras and enables some of the most immersive and engaging content available. Vuzix has developed the capability to connect its wearable Smart Glasses devices with GoPro cameras for complete hands-free viewfinder and control capability. Wireless connection with Vuzix Smart Glasses facilitates a natural, hands-free interactive user experience with GoPro. The crisp, high resolution display of Vuzix’ M300 provides an ideal viewfinder for capturing the rich, high definition content of GoPro cameras. Control of the camera via the M300’s advanced speech recognition capability facilitates unencumbered hands-free operation of the GoPro.

Vuzix envisions use of Smart Glasses remote viewfinder and control of GoPro cameras in professional and high end video production. Videographers are afforded access to GoPro camera feeds and remote control for hands-free direction of multiple cameras. GoPro cameras are ideal video sources for point of view and inaccessible camera locations. Control of these cameras from Vuzix Smart Glasses gives filmmakers access to them simultaneously with operation of the primary camera or other equipment.

Creating connectivity with GoPro cameras is another step forward in Vuzix’s goal of providing prosumer and enterprise customers with innovative productivity tools. Vuzix is among the first group of companies with access to the GoPro Developer Program toolkits, enabling the company to deliver innovative, immersive video streaming experiences for prosumers and users in the workplace. Applications include inspection assistance, high quality video for remote guidance and support, service documentation, and of course entertainment.

“We continuously strive to enable enterprises to achieve productivity gains in the workplace. Connectivity with GoPro products through the GoPro Developer Program is a significant advance towards that effort,” said Paul Travers, President and Chief Executive Officer at Vuzix. “Our wearable technology already generates efficiencies in the workplace. With this video capability, users who work remotely can see and experience the offsite location as if they were actually there.” He continued, “In the prosumer space, the M300 combined with GoPro cameras is a perfect tool for the creation of immersive content.”

“We are thrilled to welcome Vuzix to the GoPro Developer Program,” said Adam Silver, director of strategic product partnerships at GoPro. “With Vuzix M300 Smart Glasses providing voice control of GoPro cameras for complete hands-free interactivity, users will be able to generate sharp, high resolution videos for professional and semiprofessional production alike.”
