[Acquired patent rights for 1 US patent and 2 Japanese patents]
Scheduled from 3D video distribution to hologram content generation and distribution, New xR “Holographic Reality” SwipeVideo …………………………………………………………………………………………… AMATELUS Co., Ltd. (Head office: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, Representative Director: Shinya Shimojo, AMATELUS) has officially obtained a patent for video distribution equipment, video distribution system, video distribution method, and video distribution program. (International patent pending) (English follows Japanese)
[Background and issues]
Free viewpoint video (360 ° multi-angle video) is a general term for video that can be viewed from various viewpoints. It is also a video technology that has been researched and developed by multiple global companies. In Japan, it was used in the Japanese series of baseball in 2017, and in the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics, it was limited to a 5G tablet, and it was a demonstration experiment with a free viewpoint video (360 ° multi-angle video) of figurine skating. It is planned to be used as a video and to provide a viewing experience locally at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, limited to 5G terminals. However, as a problem, distribution and playback (viewpoint switching viewing) on ​​the Web browser is difficult due to factors such as high video processing load, high distribution load, heavy video capacity, etc. The situation continues that viewers are not able to experience it.
[Solved by patented technology]
The patented technology “SwipeVideo (Holographic Reality)” announced this time is the world’s first original technology that has cleared the above issues. Since the video works only with WEB technology (HTML5), an application is not necessary, and it is possible to switch the video that the viewer is playing at any timing (even during slow playback, still, zooming) It is possible to view the video by changing the viewpoint of the video simply by swiping. Therefore, because it is possible to distribute “free viewpoint video (360 ° multi-angle video)” to current smartphone users of 4G lines all over the world, it offers an unprecedented rich viewing experience to many viewers. It became an original system that can be done. If the 5G environment is in place, the user experience will be further improved and richer video can be distributed. This time, we acquired 1 US patent and 2 Japanese patents for video distribution device, video distribution system, video distribution method, and video distribution program for multiple videos including “Free Viewpoint Video (360 ° Multi-angle Video)” It will be an announcement. AMATELUS has applied for international patents and plans to expand to other countries in the future. In addition, we plan to develop and apply for inventions that have been improved based on this patent. Patent No10417744 Patent No. 6568670 Patent No. 6571859
【Use Case】
Deliver sports free viewpoint video domestically and overseas, distribute artist live video (multi-angle video) domestically and internationally, distribute video for training such as form check, and multi-angle video of apparel brand It can be used as a commemorative photo at the event. * Live distribution is also possible If the company that wants to distribute it introduces the “SaaS model cloud distribution system”, it will be possible to generate and distribute free viewpoint video on the introducing company side. * Please contact us by e-mail for details regarding the web renewal. info@amatelus.co.jp For use in technical education and training sites (manufacturing industry, vocational school, various schools), “on-premise provision” that is optimal for closed use is also possible.
[About shooting (and new shooting methods)]
There is no limit to the shooting itself. If multiple-angle video data exists, “SwipeVideo” can be generated and distributed, so you can use video shot with a professional camera or video shot with a smartphone. For example, as shown in the image below, multiple smartphone users can synchronize their smartphones and shoot at the same time to create a “SwipeVideo” that can be viewed as a single video for each photographer. (Contents of patent scope announced this time) As 5G smartphones become more widespread, we can expect a world where the speed to the viewing experience can be provided in real time even if the number of smartphones is increased or the image quality is increased during synchronous shooting.

【the next deployment】
We will actively work on the product market development by the fact that the patent has been officially acquired. Actively respond to inquiries from companies and organizations that want to use for “free viewpoint video”, “multi-angle video”, “digital content”, “privileged video”, etc. in sports, entertainment, technical education, etc. The In October, we will be presenting at a pitch event to showcase our patented technology (product) in Silicon Valley in the United States. We will continue to develop new video viewing experiences for people around the world. We will develop products that enable people around the world to leave their feelings in realistic images.
