What is TwitCasting VV?

Platforms using 3D models are growing, allowing users to easily immerse themselves in a 3D virtual space using VR glasses and motion capture solutions.

Moreover, the use of 3D models is increasing not only among corporate talents such as Vtubers, but also among streamers in general.

However, most communication solutions using 3D models require equipment and preparations, and the use of glasses and sensors impose physical limitations that make it difficult for streamers to do the most common format of live streaming, chat while playing a game for a long time. TwitCasting VV aims to develop an optimized 3D space to enjoy live streaming.

It’s simple, easy to use and more user-friendly than any other 3D space to date: it can run on a smartphone, using only a browser.
