Vuzix Corporation (Nasdaq: VUZI) announced a new partnership with Austria's ANYLINE to provide Vuzix M100 and M300 users with the mobile industry's leading OCR (Optical Character Recognition) application. Whether reading text across a room, a license plate on a car, or a gas meter in a manufacturing plant, the ANYLINE technology is able to deliver a fast and robust alternative to inputting data via voice recognition, typing, or button scrolling. ANYLINE will demo this technology on the Vuzix Smart Glasses at the AWE Europe conference in Berlin being held on Oct 18th and 19th, 2016.

ANYLINE, the leading OCR technology for mobile devices, is solely focused on fast and accurate text recognition. This type of data import is still difficult to accomplish, as it requires a higher processor power and camera resolution. ANYLINE will now leverage the new Vuzix M300 to provide this experience at the speed and accuracy demanded in enterprise environments. The SDK (software development kit) can be easily adapted to client specific needs, or can be used with several pre-optimized applications. Current use cases span scanning passports for the United Nations, to reading utility meters for large energy providers and offering a voucher code scanner within customer loyalty campaigns for companies like Red Bull Mobile.

"We are excited to add the ANYLINE OCR application to the Vuzix developer toolkit. While currently available on the M100 Smart Glasses, the new Vuzix M300 was specifically designed with 3-times the processing power and a significantly higher resolution camera to empower applications like this to deliver the quality and speed required by enterprise," said Paul Travers, President and CEO of Vuzix. "We are pleased to exhibit our Smart Glasses enabled with this application, as well as those of several of our Vuzix Industrial Partners (VIP's), at AWE Europe this week."

Vuzix will take part in this week's AWE Europe on October 18th and 19th in Berlin, including participating in a panel to discuss European enterprise smart glasses applications at 10:15 AM on the mainstage. Several Vuzix VIP partners, including Ubimax, Picavi, and Atheer Labs, will also be staging demos using Vuzix Smart Glasses and discussing their current industrial deployments of the advanced M300 hardware.
