Vuzix Corporation recently announced that its Tac-Eye Monocular Display System is now available for purchase across Europe. The Tac-Eye LT is a lightweight, low profile, high-resolution monocular eyewear piece designed for use in the field where rugged hands-free video displays are needed.
Part of Vuzix’s handy (and award-winning) technology, the Tac-Eye LT unit enables users to view the real world alongside relevant computer generated information, graphics and alerts (full-on ‘Terminator’-type stuff, innit).
Designed with the mobile user in mind, its high-contrast SVGA (800×600) display is close to perfect for displaying images from a wearable computer, laptop, vehicle mounted computer system, security cameras, or any other video source. Combined with some of the new Ultra Mobile PCs, European users now have access to one of the lightest, rugged wearable computer systems ever built. Yep. It’s just that good.
David Lock, Director of Operations EMEA Region, Vuzix commented,
“The Tac-Eye has been a popular choice among the defence, security and industrial sectors across the US for some time now and we have regularly received requests for information on the Tac-Eye products from interested parties in Europe. We’re delighted to now be offering these products and to have the ability to fulfil all of the potential sales requests that come into the European office.”
Mounted on Oakley SI Ballistic M-Frame 2.0 eyewear (but it also clips onto standard safety glasses, FYI), the monocular display will improve the user’s situational awareness (with a super 30 degree diagonal field of view) over other monocular models. It is expected to be a popular choice with industrial organisations across Europe due to being able to withstand varying degrees of shock, vibration, water, dust and temperature fluctuations. Told you. ‘Terminator’-type stuff!
The VGA unit includes a standard VGA connector as well as a rugged mouse, the video unit provides a BNC and RCA connection that will accept NTSC, PAL, and RS-170 video signals and the VGA/video unit includes all of the connectors and input devices from both of the VGA and video configurations. Power, display brightness, and display orientation are controlled by the inline control pad. You have the power. You have the technology, and so on.
Ready in three formats: Video, VGA and VGA/Video the Tac-Eye LT is available now from www.vuzix.eu.
