Wikitude Expands Its AR SDK to Epson Moverio BT-300 and BT-350 Smart GlassesEpson, pioneer in the technology industry, is leading the way in visual communications, wearable products, drone accessories and industrial solutions. A great part of that forefront action is due to their innovative Moverio smart eyewear line. Supported by Wikitude since 2014, the devices have been used by enterprises and consumers worldwide to deliver hands-free augmented reality experiences. Today, Wikitude is excited to expand the accessibility of its AR technology even further by launching a fully optimized Wikitude SDK for Epson’s newest devices: the Moverio BT-300 and BT-350 smart glasses.
Both Moverio smart glasses include motion-tracking sensors and feature dual (binocular) displays optimal for side-by-side 3D content. These AR eyewear pieces are also reduced in weight, have a high-resolution camera, improved processing capability and an advanced Si-OLED display, superior in contrast and transparency, making digital content blend in much more realistically with the real world. Following a detailed development, the Wikitude AR SDK has been fully adapted to make the best out of the unique features of both devices, ensuring optimal performance in a variety of environments and use cases. Among these customizations are:
- Intel SSE optimization: ensuring best processing power and performance for both devices;
- Optimization for stereoscopic view: enabling full 3D see-through (side-by-side view) support of Moverio smart glasses;
- Personal calibration: enabling perfect alignment between the real world and AR content.
