Imint-enabled Rokid X-Craft AR headband allows industrial workers to access visual information safely and effectively through optimized and stabilized video performance.
UPPSALA, Sweden, September 23, 2021 — IMINT Image Intelligence AB (“Imint”), a global leader in video enhancement software, today announced collaboration with Rokid Corp., developers of augmented- and mixed-reality glasses and headwear for industrial applications. Under the agreement, Imint’s pioneering Vidhance software is integrated into Rokid’s new 5G-enabled Rokid X-Craft explosion-proof, industrial AR headband – giving a new generation of super workers access to visual information on the job.
Featuring two built-in cameras and a large field-of-view, binocular diffractive optical waveguide display, the Rokid X-Craft is compatible with standard helmets and worn in high-risk environments, such as oil & gas, electric power, aviation, and rail transport. It is IP66 rated to protect against water and dust, and it is ATEX/IECEx certified to be safe in potentially hazardous, explosive areas.
The Rokid X-Craft is designed to provide video to and from frontline workers performing field operations, inspections, remote training and collaboration, facility maintenance, safety and quality inspections, and other industrial tasks. To deliver high-quality video, the X-Craft includes Vidhance Video Stabilization software, technology that intelligently compensates for camera movement to deliver the most stable video possible, especially in low-light environments.
“Rokid’s industrial headband allows workers to easily access important video under some of the most challenging circumstances,” said Andreas Lifvendahl, CEO, Imint. “Being among the first to integrate 5G into a headworn device, Rokid understands the high-performance computing needs of workers in the field. With Iminit’s Vidhance video enhancement software, Rokid is able to ensure optimal video performance and clear resolution for both recorded and real-time viewing.”
The Rokid X-Craft utilizes an Amlogic A311D chipset and Rokid-developed Yoda OS-XR operating system, based on Android. Vidhance running on the Amlogic A311D/Yoda OS-XR platform is a first for Imint, demonstrating the expanding compatibility of Vidhance to optimize video on a broader selection of innovative mobile devices. As the market’s first headworn wearable with 5G, the Rokid X-Craft further demonstrates Vidhance software’s compatibility with next-generation, high-speed wireless connections.
“Stable video is critical to real-world applications of the Rokid X-Craft industrial headband,” said Liang Guan, Vice President of Business Development at Strategy, Rokid. “So is video optimization software that works at an ultra-high level across all the cutting-edge technologies our engineers bring to bear on a solution like X-Craft. Throughout product development, we’ve seen that Vidhance creates the video experience X-Craft users need to be successful in even the most demanding situations.”
The collaboration with Rokid is Imint’s latest in the growing market for head-mounted displays and industrial wearables, underscoring the critical need for stable, high-quality video in the emerging category of headworn devices.
