Vuzix Announces Cisco Webex Teams Video Conferencing Support for its Full Line of Smart Glasses


ROCHESTER, N.Y., April 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI), ("Vuzix" or, the "Company"), a leading supplier of Smart Glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technology and products, today announced the commercial availability of its connector app for the Cisco Webex Teams video conferencing application on its Vuzix M-Series and the Vuzix Blade® Smart Glasses.

Cisco Webex Teams is a widely used collaboration solution that keeps people and teamwork connected anytime, anywhere, on any device. With the Webex Teams app, users create secure virtual workspaces for everything, from completing short-term projects to solving longer-term business opportunities. Day-to-day interactions with messaging and file sharing and editing can be enhanced with third-party app integrations for a seamless workflow. Webex Teams can increase productivity and engagement with real-time communications, starts calls instantly, and provides high-quality video meetings with screen-sharing at the touch of a button. Existing licenses for Webex Teams are required to use the connector app and they are available directly from Cisco.

"Webex Teams customers can connect to a remote mentor or support team hands-free when using our M-Series or Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses. The use of our smart glasses connector app for the Webex Teams video conferencing service provides our customers with a wearable and hands-free version of this application developed specifically for the Vuzix smart glasses. It allows them to login, connect and share their POV (point-of-view) feed real-time from the camera of Vuzix smart glasses," said Paul Travers, Vuzix President and Chief Executive Officer. "The Webex Teams service accessed through the connector app enables not only one-to-one support calls but also one-to-many, which allows remote workers to share what they are seeing with all of the users that have joined the meeting simultaneously."
