ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI), ("Vuzix" or, the "Company"), a leading supplier of Smart Glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technology and products, today announced the Company has been invited by DJI™ to showcase its applications for operating DJI™ drones on Vuzix smart glasses at AirWorks 2019 taking place September 24-26 in Los Angeles, CA.
The Vuzix application for operating DJI™ drones on the Vuzix Blade® Smart Glasses was announced in June 2019, and now a corresponding application is also available for the Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses. The apps enable communication between Vuzix smart glasses and DJI™ remote controllers through a USB cable or via WiFi. The Vuzix Blade and M400 Smart Glasses allow pilots to not only keep their eyes on the drone, but also simultaneously receive navigational feedback and a live video feed coming from the drone directly through their Vuzix smart glasses.

Vuzix will join hundreds of commercial drone professionals, technology experts, and policymakers at AirWorks 2019, which focuses on the future of drone technology and drone related businesses and solutions.
"Vuzix is thrilled to be invited by DJI™ to participate and showcase our applications for operating DJI™ drones on Vuzix smart glasses, which can be used across multiple vertical markets including security, first responders, insurance, inspection, manufacturing and field service, as well as by prosumers," said Paul Travers, President and Chief Executive Officer at Vuzix. "DJI™ controls a significant share of the drone market and the commercial availability of these apps for Vuzix Blade® and M400 Smart Glasses opens up additional adjacent markets for Vuzix by allowing Vuzix smart glasses to be used as a hands-free visual aid, eliminating the need for a smartphone or tablet."
