The STAR 1200XLD is offered at a price that is only a fraction of alternate 
solutions in today's market, making it more accessible to educators and 
researchers. Nippon Steel Corp, NEC, NTT docomo, Georgia State University, and 
metaio are just some of the organizations utilizing Vuzix AR eyewear products. 
The new STAR 1200XLD incorporates all the features of the STAR 1200XL AR 
glasses, and is further enhanced through the simplicity of an industry 
standard high definition multimedia interface (HDMI) with support for digital 
rights management (DRM) and 3D video sources. Its AR feature set includes 3DOF 
motion tracking sensors and a built in 1080p HD camera for "tracking and 
recognizing" the real world objects to allow 3D computer generated content to 
be locked in place when overlaid on top of the user's direct view of the real 
world. 
Paul J. Travers, Vuzix's President and CEO, commented, "We are very proud to 
offer the world's best selling see-through augmented reality eyewear systems. 
Some of the leading researchers around the world are using our STAR 1200XL to 
develop new ways to integrate AR into products from cars to sales and 
marketing tools, to assistive medical solutions. Vuzix is leading the 
evolution of AR into becoming accessible to the enormous consumer market. 
While the STAR 1200XLD is currently a tool for the research market, it 
utilizes our core technologies that are being integrated into our upcoming 
smart glasses for the consumer market." 
"The STAR 1200XLD's industry standard USB and HDMI interfaces will allow AR to 
be deployed on many of the latest mobile platforms allowing developers and 
applications to expand beyond the desktop where most of the exciting AR 
content is being created today," Travers added. 
According to ABI Research, wearable computing devices will exceed 485 million 
annual device shipments by 2018. 75 million of these are projected to be smart 
glasses. Juniper Research has valued the next-gen wearable devices market 
including smart glasses to be worth more than $1.5 billion by 2014. 
The STAR 1200XLD is a see-through AR-enabled binocular Video Eyewear that 
sports a 35 degree field of view. Building from Vuzix' award winning 
technology in AR-enabled video eyewear, this display allows users to view the 
real world while simultaneously viewing relevant computer generated 
information, graphics and alerts. The STAR 1200XLD also supports audio and 2D 
or 3D video to virtually all HDMI-out devices. At last you can connect a 
single video eyewear model to products ranging from a desktop or laptop 
computer to mobile devices, such as a tablet or smartphone, and even your 3D 
Blu-ray player. The STAR 1200XLD also has a native 16:9 format with full color 
WVGA (852 x 480) displays. 
The STAR 1200XLD sports a 75" virtual display, as seen from 10 feet (~3m), and 
features adjustable eye-separation and AccuTilt® to allow superior visual 
clarity and display quality. A high performance 1080p HD camera and integrated 
head tracker round out the STAR 1200XLD's AR eyewear feature set. 
Truly the most technically advanced and easiest to use STAR AR system yet; 
simply plug the HD camera into a USB port and the HDMI cable into any HDMI 
equipped host device and you are ready to go. The STAR 1200XLD camera and 
display system are industry standard and compatible with most Windows based AR 
authoring software. A Software Developer Kit (SDK) is available for free 
download from the Vuzix website (www.vuzix.com/support/developer_program.html) 
The STAR 1200XLD is available to order now.
