    About Univet

    Univet is specialized in the design and manufacture of industrial, medical, and laser safety eyewear together with magnification systems devised for the surgical and dental sector.  Among the first companies to introduce the concept of sport and design eyewear into the safety field, Univet has developed products that are unique for their comfort and style. The thorough ergonomic study of frames is combined with extreme care about design and technology for a fresh conception of comfort and style.

    Innovative and up-to-date, Univet stands out for its dynamism on the international stage; branches in France and North America and field offices all over the world have joined the Italian headquarter, that nowadays exports its products to more than seventy-five countries
  • On the Sony’s booth, in the Augmented Reality area, at CES, the world’s largest consumer technology tradeshow, hosted in Las Vegas from 5th to 8th of January 2017, the visitors will be able to test the Univet most comprehensive augmented reality experience for the industrial and professional application, always keeping in mind the highest level of eye protection during the performance in the working place.
    By wearing the prototype “Univet 5.0”, a specifically designed pair of safety glasses, the operators will in fact test several applications with augmented reality, specifically dedicated to data management and items warehousing, manufacturing and assembly instructions, machinery status report, medical data visualization in real time, simultaneous translations, warning alerts, etc.
    Univet, the Italian leader manufacturer and among the world top players for the production of safety eyewear, clean room and laser protection, as well as of magnification loupes for medical and dentistry application, takes the greatest care in the personal protection also when additional devices are integrated. And this always to enhance the professional use and improve the performance, because there are many tasks which are today required in the daily practice such as: be connected and proactive, provide data integration, ensure time optimization and quick solutions, receive additional feedback, manage status and reports, always in the safest conditions.
    The patent pending Univet safety eyewear model 5.0 are equipped with a “holographic waveguide technology” that takes the light created in the optical engine and projects a virtual image through the holographic optical elements to the eyes of the wearer. Together with the protective plating, this technology enables more than 85% visible light transmittance, with lenses that are only 2 mm. thick in total. The monochrome application provides benefits such as low power consumption and less distracting information which plays a key role when it comes to safety application.
    The transparent lens superimposes information onto the wearer’s natural field of view. Its’ therefore perfect for notifications and information layers on top of the surrounded world and reality.
    The Sony’s holographic waveguide technology is perfectly integrated into the Univet eyewear which can also offer a large number of options and additional features.
    Univet 5.0 glasses are designed to comply with EN 166 and ANSI safety standards, they are Over-Spec in order to accommodate operator’s existing prescription glasses, they have a monocular projection system with a 3D adjustable position to fit several pupillary distance and different application needs.
    With interchangeable front lens, and a continuous operating time granted by a battery hot swap, the glasses Univet 5.0 can be connected to a central system, such as a corporate ERP, via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
    Of course the eyewear is also connected to a compatible smartphone, where the apps are running, in order to access the sensor data and give real-time information from the accelerometer, gyro, electronic compass, brightness sensor and microphone, a GPRS (2G/3G/4G) module or a GPS one, as well as some optional sensors such as IR, temperature, barometer, etc., and take pictures and videos from the optional camera.

    Paolo Portesi, CEO of Univet group says: “This prototype Univet 5.0 is perfectly in line with our constant innovation attitude, with our aim to always further develop and improve the safety eyewear. We are the Italian leader and among the top players worldwide. As for the entire product range, our target is to manufacture a comprehensive product: ALL IN ONE. The Univet 5.0 Augmented Reality safety eyewear are in fact combining ergonomics and efficiency, functionality and aesthetics, the best Italian design with the highest safety and innovation level, also thanks to our persistence for details. Because, being a working tool to be worn all day, the safety eyewear must be comfortable, light and efficient and nice to wear.”

    “The key to success is persistence”, continues Paolo Portesi, “work with a long term target, make your own vision something recognizable by the others, a story to tell and which people can identify and trust. Univet succeeded, thanks to a young team together with, in few years, we turned a simple business idea – twenty years ago in Italy there was no manufacturer of personal protection eyewear –  a solid company which is today, for a multinational such as Sony, a reliable and ideal partner together with it’s possible to “watch” the future and the technology innovation with new eyes and new tools”.

  • Univet 5.0 Augmented Reality
    The Univet 5.0 safety glasses add augmented reality to the wearer’s visual field. Aided by waveguide technology, holographic projections are displayed right in front of the wearer’s eyes....

  • The glasses integrate Sony's "holographic waveguide technology" into eye protection that allows wearers to view real time data without looking up from what they are doing.

    A monocular projection system displays data on a holographic screen behind the right protective lens. The screen is clear so the wearer can see through it.

    The glasses can use WiFi or Bluetooth to access data on computers, tables, and smartphones. Information is able to travel in both directions so data can be collected from internal sensors such as the GPS and microphone or optional sensors such as thermometers and cameras.

    This tech could be used for any number of applications. For example, a warehouse worker might view packing lists, a nurse or doctor the patient's vital signs, a factory worker assembly instructions, or a rescue worker text notifications from cohorts.

    The projection unit is attached to the screen and is connected by cord to an external battery and can be swapped between different users' glasses. Should the protective outer lens be scratched or damaged it is easily removed and replaced.
