LONG BEACH, Calif. – August 8, 2018 – Designed for use with existing hardware devices, Epson, providers of the Moverio® augmented reality (AR) smart glasses platform, today launched the new Moverio BT-35E Smart Glasses. Featuring an interface unit with HDMI® and USB Type-C ports to connect to popular output devices, the Moverio BT-35E Smart Glasses seamlessly blends digital content into the real world. The new smart glasses bring Epson’s optical expertise to an expanded audience for applications including enterprise drone piloting, remote field support, and visitor experience.
“Prior to the new Moverio BT-35E Smart Glasses, Moverio products have been standalone, and have included an Android based controller unit,” said Leon Laroue, technical product manager, augmented reality solutions, Epson. “Developed from customer insights, the Moverio BT-35E Smart Glasses represents Epson's first smart glasses that provide users with wider access to content that they want on a wearable display through existing output devices.”
The Moverio BT-35E functions as a wearable display for any standard HDMI (HDMI1.4) output device, as well as any USB Type-C output device supporting DisplayPort Alt Mode, eliminating the need to create or port new content to the Moverio platform.

Offering an easy out-of-box experience, the Moverio BT-35E smart glasses provide easy plug-and-play operation with no special software required.
