Vuzix launches personal entertainment eyewear for 3D movies, music and gaming.

Oxford, UK and IFA, Berlin – September 5, 2011 – Vuzix Corporation (TSX-V: VZX, OTC:BB: VUZI , FMB: V7X ) , award-winning manufacturer of video eyewear, is excited to announce the availability of the new Wrap 1200 Video Eyewear. Boasting a virtual 75” 16:9 widescreen display for 2D and 3D content the Wrap 1200 turns video and gaming devices, such as the iPod Touch, iPod Nano, and all mobile phones with video out (iPhone, Android, Nokia, etc.) into a complete big screen entertainment system straight from the user’s pocket.

Whether your passion is movies, music or gaming, the Wrap 1200 is for you.  Now with Vuzix’ patented AccuTilt® technology the Wrap 1200 is fully adjustable for optimum comfort and viewing angle.  In addition the Wrap 1200 allows the user to position the displays to match the wearer’s IPD (Interpupillary Distance or eye separation) allowing for optimum placement in front of each eye (much like binoculars).

As with all the Vuzix Wrap eyewear, the Wrap 1200 features convenient on-screen display controls (brightness, contrast, hue and colour saturation), independent left and right eye focal adjustment and both component and composite video connections for superior video quality and maximum compatibility with devices including, game consoles, media players, phones, DVD players and tablets.  A VGA cable for those wishing to connect the glasses to a laptop is available along with a full line of accessories from the online webstore.

“We spent over a year developing the Wrap 1200, ensuring it is one of the most advanced, feature rich video eyewear ever produced,” said Paul Travers, CEO Vuzix Corporation. “The combination of a 16:9 high resolution widescreen display along with our AccuTilt display angle technology provides our customers with an unmatched mobile viewing experience.”

The stylish Wrap 1200 is wearable over most prescription glasses and features an adjustable hypoallergenic nosepiece and detachable premium quality noise-isolating stereo earphones. Powered by two AA batteries these provide up to three hours of video playback or users can purchase a rechargeable Wrap PowerPak+ for added battery life.

The Vuzix Wrap 1200 is available now at http://www.vuzix.eu for £399.99/ €449.99
