Com­bined solu­tion addresses growth needs as busi­nesses posi­tion for expan­sion in the wake of reopenings

ROCHESTER, NY, March 10, 2021 – Vuzix® Cor­po­ra­tion (NASDAQ: VUZI), (“Vuzix” or, the “Com­pany”), a lead­ing sup­plier of Smart Glasses and Aug­mented Real­ity (AR) tech­nol­ogy and prod­ucts, today announced a part­ner­ship with rooom AG, a mar­ket­ing tech startup based in Ger­many that offers an inno­v­a­tive all-in-one solu­tion for 3D and AR to sup­port inter­est from cus­tomers in health­care, edu­ca­tion, field ser­vice, con­struc­tion, man­u­fac­tur­ing and training.

The future of mobile work­ers across man­u­fac­tur­ing, field ser­vice and health­care has begun to shift from in-per­son sup­port towards a hybrid model of in-per­son and remote sup­port. Part­ner­ing with rooom AG, which offers a cloud-based plat­form that allows cus­tomers to dig­i­tize assets and prod­ucts into CAD data, will help Vuzix enter­prise cus­tomers across mul­ti­ple mar­ket ver­ti­cals expand the usage of Vuzix Smart Glasses and begin to build and offer new AR dig­i­tal­ized assets to their employ­ees and staff to assist with train­ing and knowl­edge transfer.

“We are excited to work with Vuzix, an indus­try leader in smart glasses, to expand our pres­ence across enter­prise and pro­vide new inno­v­a­tive expe­ri­ences and 3D aug­mented real­ity dig­i­tal­ized assets for train­ing and knowl­edge trans­fer,” said Hans Elst­ner, CEO and co-founder of rooom AG. “We wel­come rooom AG as a Vuzix Smart Glasses plat­form part­ner. Our com­bined solu­tion will sup­port the cre­ation of advanced 3D aug­mented real­ity con­tent for both new and exist­ing enter­prise cus­tomers at both com­pa­nies, while con­cur­rently dri­ving increased demand for our Smart Glasses,” said Paul Tra­vers, Pres­i­dent and CEO of Vuzix.
