On Wednesday, 02nd of February, Icuiti announced the introduction of the M920 Heads up Display System at the 16th Annual NDIA SO/LIC Symposium of Wearable, High Resolution, Hands Free Imaging.

The M920 promises a major step forward in imaging technology, offering high resolution (for a HUD) 640 x 480 imaging and totally hands-free operation. In addition, the extreme low weight ? a bare handful of ounces, eases long-term use.

The M920 is the second generation of the Icuiti's Video Eyewear for vertical market and Military applications. The M920 provides hands free access to digital data, from just about any video source. Icuiti has plans for two models of the M920: the first has a CompactFlash interface which plugs directly into a standard Pocket PC enabled PDA, offering PDA users a 4X increase in screen size.

"PDA's have become common place in a variety of vertical market and Military applications," noted Stephen Glaser the Company's VP of Sales for their Tactical Display Group, "the one limiting factor on a PDA is its small screen, limiting its functionality for some applications. Secondly, the ability to be hands free in some of these environments is critical. The M920 allows users to be looking at data or video feeds and working at the same time, increasing both productivity and safety."

Perhaps most notable, is that the M920 retails for $799 (us), the very first time a HUD of high quality has dropped below 1000 usd anywhere.
