Vuzix Corporation (Nasdaq: VUZI) announced that Atheer has joined the Vuzix Industrial Partner (VIP) program. Based in Mountain View, California, Atheer, pioneer of AiR™ (Augmented interactive Reality) computing, enhances the productivity and safety of "desk-less professionals" at Fortune 1000 companies such as Flex, Masimo, and Duke Energy. Atheer was recently selected as one of the first VIPs to receive the M300 DVT (Design Validation Test) units, which are effectively final production units going through certification. This allows Atheer to immediately showcase its AiR Suite platform to its client base running on production quality M300 Smart Glasses, with their unprecedented video streaming quality, wear-all-day ergonomics, and corporate grade Android 6 security features.

Atheer's award winning remote collaboration platform, AiR Suite, allows for the most interactive (via voice, head motion, and Atheer's proprietary gesture recognition software) mobile smart glasses experience possible. It is an "out-of-box" solution, allowing companies to quickly test and deploy AR in enterprise environments. This early VIP collaboration will ensure that the Vuzix M300 Smart Glasses will be compatible with AiR Suite on Day 1, empowering enterprise professionals with crystal clear video-calling, annotation, and messaging capabilities. AiR Suite also features a one of a kind drag-and-drop workflow creation tool, enabling the creation of smart glasses content with no coding capability required.

"Vuzix and Atheer share a commitment to providing enterprise professionals the tools to increase productivity, accurately and immediately," says Alberto Torres, CEO of Atheer. "The M300 Smart Glasses from Vuzix are among the most cutting-edge computer eyewear devices. And with our partnership, they will now offer state-of-the-art gesture and voice controls."

"We are pleased to continue working very closely with Atheer, whose AiR Suite app has been the #1 most downloaded app on the Vuzix App store for the past year." said Paul Travers, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vuzix. "Atheer's AiR Suite is one of the best-in-class enterprise solutions available for Vuzix M100 and now M300 Smart Glasses, and in particular, AiR Suite's simple user controlled task flow creation tool equips our M300 to be transformative for industrial businesses across a range of applications. The AiR App allows users to immediately pilot the solution, validate KPI (key performance indicators), and move to production deployment – sometimes in less than 30 days."

Atheer's AiR Suite and gesture recognition solution for the Vuzix M300 will be featured at the upcoming vFORUM2016, Airwatch Connect, Dell World, and AWE Europe events.
