TOKYO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–MATRIX Inc. (Headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; Representative Director: Junichi Goishi; hereinafter “MATRIX”) of the MetaReal Group is pleased to announce the release of its long-anticipated new feature, “VR Live Broadcasting” on its reality Metaverse space sharing platform DOKODEMO Door. This revolutionary new service allows creators to broadcast live 360° high-quality video in VR.
About the VR Live Broadcasting function
DOKODEMO Door is a reality Metaverse platform that features 360° high-quality pre-recorded images where creators, businesses, etc., can interact with the public as Metaversers* by holding and taking part in various events. https://www.matrix.inc/how-to-create-live-event
Unlike live broadcasting on many video distribution sites, the newly released Live Broadcasting feature allows creators and participants to spend time in the same space. In addition, natural conversations can be conducted in real time using DOKODEMO Door’s integrated automatic AI translation function, allowing participants from around the world to communicate in various languages.
The following are examples of how this feature can used:
- Live broadcasting of classes from schools for students who are unable to physically attend
- Live broadcasting of international sports competitions from around the world
- For elderly people in care facilities who wish to spend time with their families
- Live broadcasting from the sites of news events from around the world as events unfold
By releasing various useful functions, we will continue to collaborate with businesses in multiple industries so that more people can benefit from VR technology and the metaverse.
*Metaverser: A user who creates a metaverse space (World) or holds an Event on the DOKODEMO Door platform. Anyone—creators, enthusiasts, businesses—can become a Metaverser for free.
