Vuzix Shield connects smart workforces with AR systems for optimised performance, safety and operational efficiency.

“The Vuzix Shield Smart Glasses were designed to be optically see-through and deliver the enterprise performance that our customers have grown accustomed to experiencing with our XR1-powered M400 and M4000,” says Paul Travers president and chief executive officer at Vuzix. “This is the product incorporating our latest uLED display engines and advanced waveguide technologies with vastly improved optical performance and efficiency along with reduced sizing.”

The Vuzix Shield will be on display at CES 2022 January 5 to 7th at the Vuzix booth (#17075) located in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Centre.
