What is TwitCasting VV?

Platforms using 3D models are expanding, which let users easily immerse themselves in a 3D virtual space using VR goggles and motion capture solutions.

In addition, 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 goggles and sensors forces physical limitations which make streamers difficult to do the most common format of live streaming, chatting while playing a game for a long duration. TwitCasting VV aims to develop a 3D space optimized to enjoy live streaming.

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