On March 7, 2023, KDDI entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Google Cloud Japan, LLC to co-create business by leveraging the cloud rendering technology Immersive Stream for XR, among other capabilities.
Through the MOU, we will work to create and promote new XR experiences by leveraging KDDI's 5G technology, its metaverse and Web3 service called αU, the computing resources provided by Google Cloud, and content delivery platforms such as YouTube.
<Collaboration between αU live and Immersive Stream for XR>
KDDI and Google Cloud will strengthen their cooperation through a comprehensive framework to promote new businesses utilizing XR.
On May 18, 2022, KDDI developed a high-definition XR mannequin for apparel distributors utilizing Google Cloud's Immersive Stream for XR. With this solution, users can view products in 360 degrees via a variety of devices such as store signage and smartphones. Stores can provide a customer experience that feels like the product is right in front of the customer's eyes, without the products being physically present.
