Vuzix® Corporation today announced that its breakthrough V720 video headphone is the winner of two 2014 CES Innovations Design and Engineering Awards in the “Headphones” and “Wireless Handset Accessories” Product Categories.
This is the tenth consecutive year Vuzix has won a CES Innovation award and increases the total to 16 awards received over that time, including “Best of Innovation” last year for the highly-acclaimed M100 Smart Glasses.
The V720 are high-performance headphones with HD video screens that provide a huge fold-up 720p display to immerse the viewer in an incredibly detailed, lifelike video experience that is like watching an IMAX® movie. Ideal for games or movies which can be enjoyed with great audio, the V720 can even be used as a desktop display replacement. The V720 video headphones easily connect to PCs, mobile phones, tablets and game consoles and provides full support for 3D HDMI content.
“Vuzix is incredibly excited to have won our 16th CES Innovation Award,” said Paul Travers, CEO of Vuzix. “These awards showcase Vuzix’ leadership in both product design as well as core technologies including our new waveguide optics, co-developed with Nokia®. Our decades of innovation in both the augmented reality and personal display categories have led to several milestone product lines focused on the exploding wearable tech markets. 2014 promises to be a great year for Vuzix – and this CES award is only the beginning.”
