Northeast collaboration & cyber security expert, CommuniCloud has added RealWear HMT-1, the world’s most powerful wearable computer to its portfolio.
CommuniCloud introduces wearable technology to deliver dual benefit of productivity and safety
RealWear HMT-1 is the world’s first hands-free Android tablet class wearable computer. The technology is proven to increase productivity whilst enhancing safety. The innovative wearable technology is the latest offer from CommuniCloud, which boasts significant experience in cloud, hybrid, and on-premise business solutions.
What differentiates the RealWear headset is its range of hands-free functionality and seamless integration to a wide audience of Video Conferencing platforms meaning the user can give a “user’s eye view” of what the engineer or field worker is seeing. Originally designed for industrial workers, the use cases are endless, from remote diagnostics, remote worker training, practical teaching etc.
A fully rugged head-mounted device, the HMT-1 snaps into safety helmets or attaches to bump caps and can be used with safety glasses or corrective eyewear. The high-resolution micro display ﬁts just below the wearer’s line of sight, providing a view equivalent to a 7” tablet.
Noel Miland, CommuniCloud Country Manager, UK and Ireland explains why the technology will be especially beneficial for Northeast businesses, “For off-shore, manufacturing and automotive sectors, for example, wearable technology can be a complete game-changer. When workers are in potentially hazardous industrial situations, it means no more scrolling, swiping or tapping – they have full hands-free voice control. They can therefore concentrate solely on their key tasks rather than grappling with hand-held technology whilst collaborating easily with colleagues who can see in detailed High Definition what the wearer is seeing”.
This type of wearable technology brings obvious safety benefits but has also been shown to improve productivity. Allowing staff to maintain their focus on the task in hand, means less time wasted on non-productive activities.
For CommuniCloud, the RealWear HMT-1 is just the latest addition to their portfolio. Noel explains, “We are, at our core, a collaboration & cyber security business – the differentiation we deliver in bringing this product into our portfolio is how we will deploy the underpinning infrastructure and ensure the environment in which it operates is fully secure. The expertise we have developed in providing services to government, healthcare, finance, ICT and education, means we are well-placed to support northeast businesses to adopt this and other technology solutions with full confidence in its end-to-end integrity”.
CommuniCloud’s global headquarters is located in New South Wales, Australia. It opened its UK and Ireland office in April 2020 and has gone from strength to strength delivering key communications tools to the health sector to support their fight against the global pandemic.
