Vuzix Corporation (Nasdaq: VUZI) announced that AMA, sister company of Ubisoft and Gameloft, has joined the Vuzix Industrial Partner (VIP) program. Based in Rennes, France, AMA's fast growing business has prompted the recent opening of offices in Boston, London and Bucharest to support local implementations of their XPERT EYE software for smart glasses. As a pioneer in the 'see-what-I-see' video collaboration space, AMA has delivered this solution via connected smart glasses to a growing roster of clients in the Healthcare and Field Services industries.

Come see the AMA/Vuzix solution in action September 12-14 at Field Service USA, Fall at the Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort. AMA and Vuzix are co-sponsoring the event along with several of the world's largest Field Service providers such as ServiceMax, ServicePower, Windriver, and others.

"Always up on the latest technologies, AMA completes its portfolio with the latest generation Vuzix M300 Smart Glasses," said Christian Guillemot, AMA CEO and Founder. "Specially built for the enterprise, with better battery life, powerful Intel processor, and an adjusted viewing angle, Vuzix is raising the bar for industrial grade enterprise wearable devices. As a pioneer and leader in the AR space, Vuzix is the right smart glasses partner for AMA to continue offering significant cost efficiencies and production advances in the workplace."

AMA's clients are realizing operational and financial benefits in deployments today. For example, Air Liquide France has deployed AMA solutions at several French sites to help employees obtain remote expertise. Thanks to Vuzix smart glasses and easy-to-use software, a technician in the field can be helped by an expert or a fellow technician based in another location.

"This technology significantly improves the experience working for Air Liquide operators," declared Clément Lix, Research Associate Air Liquide.

We are using XPERT EYE for intra-operative training of surgeons daily to improve patient outcomes through knowledge crowdsourcing among experts. We are leading the point of view telehealth and tele-mentoring revolution into the future," added Paul Szotek MD, FACS-Medical Director Founder Indiana Hernia Center Carmel.

"The revolutionary ergonomic design of the M300 with adjustable arm and camera angle fits comfortably on the user's head for a full shift or long surgery," says Paul Travers, President and Chief Executive Officer at Vuzix. "The M300 continues our history of delivering unprecedented features and capabilities within a truly wearable form factor, enabling smart glasses to be deployed in the most demanding environments.
