Epson has announced the launch of a consumer rebate program, offering a $100 discount on Epson® Moverio® BT-300FPV Smart Glasses (FPV/Drone Edition). The promotion is available now and will be applied instantly at point-of-sale (POS) through the end of December.
The Epson Moverio BT-300 (FPV/Drone Edition) smart glasses were recently named a CES 2018 Innovation Award Honoree in the Robotics and Drones category for its AR app for DJI drones. This is the second time the Epson Moverio platform has received a CES Innovation Award, the official industry recognition for the most innovative products introduced at the annual consumer technology show known as CES.
Epson’s Moverio BT-300 Drone Edition smart glasses enable drone enthusiasts to view their drone camera feed while simultaneously maintaining line of sight with their aircraft. Currently, drone photographers must peer down at a smartphone or tablet to view the drone camera feed. This is often difficult in bright sunlight and unsafely takes the user’s eyes off the craft. The Moverio Drone Edition’s first-person view (FPV) transparent ‘screen’ enable pilots to view the drone camera feed while keeping the craft in their line of sight, providing a safer, more productive way to fly.
“When I received the Epson Moverio BT-300, it completely changed drone flying for me,” said Carlos Arrieta, award-winning videographer, Roar Post. “I’m not only able to see the video imagery I’m capturing, but I can also see all the specifics of the drone altitude, battery life, GPS location, maps and makes flying a drone a lot easier.”
The Epson Moverio BT-300FPV Drone Edition smart glasses has a suggested retail price of $799 and are available at Epson’s own retail site, www.epson.com as well as major e-commerce sites, including Best Buy.com, Staples.com and Amazon; major photography stores such as B&H Video and Adorama Camera; and local DJI authorized retailers, including:
“Our retail channel – both in-store and online – continues to expand, just in time for the holiday season,” said Eric Mizufuka, manager, New Ventures, Epson America. “The Epson Moverio BT-300FPV smart glasses is ultra-light, comfortable and packed with a ton of features that deliver the perfect solution for next-generation flight experiences. The $100 discount rebate increases its value even more, making it a deal that drone enthusiasts simply can’t resist.”
