As more people stay at home, the usual tools and devices we need to get work done have to adapt to this new way of modern living. We’ve already seen several devices that make it easier to work or study from home. And more companies are coming up with Virtual and augmented reality glasses and devices. And Epson, a global leader in imaging and projection technology, is getting in that ring as well. 

Epson announced the Moverio® BT-40 and BT-40S, a new generation of award-winning Moverio augmented reality (AR) smart glasses designed to deliver a high-quality AR viewing experience with maximum comfort. Powered by Epson Si-OLED technology, the new Moverio solutions offer users several advances, including a wider field of view (FOV), Full HD 1080p display resolution, high contrast, improved connectivity, and more comfortable, adjustable, and easy-to-wear design.

Remi Del MarEpson America senior product manager for  Digital Experiences, Augmented Reality and Commercial Display Solutions, said that these new Moverio models bring advanced image quality in a binocular display with improved comfort and wearability to the rapidly increasing markets where we see AR adoption grow, including industrial field service and front-line applications such as remote assistance and accessibility usage scenarios. 

With a wide 34° Field-of-View at a comfortable position for the eyes, the Moverio BT-40 and BT-40S deliver a unique heads-up, hands-free experience with a higher resolution equivalent to viewing a 120″ screen from a distance of 15 ft. Featuring improved connectivity in a new headset design with advanced weight distribution and optional nose pads allows for enhanced comfort. An up to  500,000:1 contrast ratio allows unused display space to appear transparent, and an improved aesthetic design offers glasses-style form factor and optional dark shades. The binocular design offers a see-through Si-OLED display.

Equipped with USB Type-C connectivity for a range of compatible smartphones, tablets, and computers, the Moverio BT-40 smart glasses offer an easy-to-use, plug-and-play solution managed easily with the free Moverio Link app. With a large, high-resolution second display only viewable by the wearer, the Moverio BT-40 is ideal for business users working from home, at the office, and in public spaces, where privacy and comfort are essential.

The new Moverio BT-40S also includes the option of an Intelligent Controller running Android 9.0 that supports Google Mobile Services (GMS) for custom software integration. Featuring an integrated touchscreen, customized user interfaces, expandable memory up to 2TB, IPx2 rating for durability, and Google Play compatibility, the controller has been tailor-made for a range of commercial applications. Additional controller features include built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, compass, accelerometer, gyroscope, 13-megapixel AF camera, flashlight, noise-canceling microphone, and audio jack, and a high-performance rechargeable battery with up to five hours.
