62-inch screen for your face
works for games and TV

The Vuzix video iWear AV920-C is described as the first personal video display that allows multiplayer gaming off a single video game console. The AV920-C connects to Xbox360, PlayStation3, Nintendo Wii and other consoles, then allows users to select their half or quadrant of the TV video screen and view it on their personal 62-inch virtual screen. With the ability to daisy-chain the devices together, up to four players can game without distraction or fear than an opponent can view their screen, the company says.

The iWear AV920-C is designed to connect to almost all audio/video devices with video-out capabilities. It is 3-D-enabled for automatic 2-D/3-D control, and includes removable, integrated speakers and AccuTilt viewer that pivots up to 15 degrees for a comfortable viewing angle. The iWear can be worn with or without eyeglasses, and includes an integrated rechargeable lithium-ion battery as well as mini USB AC charger. It is available with the AV920-C Console Kit bundled or sold separately.

The AV920, with its 62-inch virtual screen and twin 640 x 480 high resolution LCD displays, brings video content to life for all electronic devices with video-out connections. Compatible devices include iPods, cell phones, portable DVD players,
and gaming consoles. With a starting price of $349, the AV920’s are good for the business traveler, commuter, college student or the techno-geek that wants it all.

Weighing just 2.9 ounces, the AV920 is fully adjustable for maximum comfort, includes an AccuTilt™ viewer that pivots up to 15 degrees up and down. The design allows for use with or without glasses. The speakers on the AV920 can even be moved out of the way or removed completely for users that want to plug in their own
high-end audiophile or noise-canceling headphones. The AV920 also supports iWear 3-D® with a growing list of 3D DVD titles available at
