Spatial-Holographic Cross-Reality Collaboration Platform

1. Reason for attention

  • Tools that support online collaboration among employees, such as Google Hangout and Zoom, are attracting attention due to COVID-19
  • These tools provide video meetings and enable collaboration, such as file transfer, but for projects involving multiple people or projects requiring a variety of resources, real-time sharing of data is lost due to the absence of the concept of a workspace that must be continuously maintained. There are limitations due to lack of communication skills such as
  • Even in the after Corona (AC) era after the Corona 19 situation is settled, telecommuting is expected to become the new normal, and the demand for a technology platform that can blur the line between telecommuting and office work is expected to increase.
    • Some U.S. companies have already begun easing application requirements, assuming that they work from home and consider applicants within a four-hour travel distance of the office as one district.

2. Related Market status

  • In the AR/VR market, a total of $45 bil has been assessed so far ($8 bil has already exited through M&A, etc.), of which 50% of the enterprise value is concentrated in 18 companies.
  • The expansion of the consumer market is slow, with 6 million VR headsets sold in 2019, less than expected, and it is not enough to become mainstream.
    • Magic Leap 1, which was ambitiously released by Magic Leap with the goal of selling 1 million units per year, was released directly in April 2020 with a poor record of selling 6,000 units in 6 months.50% of the won, or 1,000 layoffs
  • However, for businesses, relatively active movements are underway, centering on companies such as STRIVR, which provide training on the use of VR.

3. Current service status

  • Spatial provides a collaboration tool that allows users to participate in a virtual space composed of holograms in the form of avatars to talk and share files as if they were in one space.
  • Microsoft HoloLens, Oculus Quest, Magic Leap 1, Qualcomm XR2, and Android/iPhone and PC can access the holographic collaboration space without device restrictions
  • We have confirmed the possibility of expanding the base by securing non-tech companies such as Mattel, Purina/Nestle, and BNP Paribas as customers.

4. Future Prospects

  • As 5G infrastructure, such as AWS Wavelength, which provides ultra-low latency services by adding AWS compute and storage to the 5G edge of telecom operators, improves, related technologies such as the development of next-generation AR/VR headsets using it are expected to develop rapidly
  • Spatial plans to expand its market base by providing an SDK so that anyone can use the product as a platform in this situation.
