KKCompany’s deep cultivation helps to boost Japan animation industry
BlendVision’s high quality + low latency allows animation studio Noovo to achieve technological breakthroughs
KKCompany unveils its ultra-low latency technology at Inter BEE 2022
[November 21, 2022, Taipei] KKStream, a B2B streaming technology provider as well as the subsidiary of KKCompany (the leading media technology group in Asia) reveals streaming solution BlendVision to bring animation production industry to the next level in addition to services applied to industries including online events, global seminars, and home fitness. The combination of exclusive Ultra Low Latency technology, high-quality streaming, automated text recording and Digital Rights Management (DRM) successfully addresses the remote production demands of Japan animation studio Noovo to promote the digital transformation of the industry.
Ultra-Low Latency Technology achieved by BlendVision to improve remote communication efficiency of Noovo
Established in 2020, Noovo is an animation production company committed to the digital transformation of animation industry by creating a digital environment that allows creators to work anywhere. Japanese animation directors and relevant personnel used to hold production meetings in the same office, but the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic forced production teams to start remote editing. However, conventional video conferencing software cannot show high-quality images or colors precisely in real-time preview, which are the most critical parts in animation production, and a production delay could thus occur.
After comparing various streaming systems on the market, Noovo decided to work with KKCompany. BlendVision’s Ultra Low Latency streaming technology not only satisfies Noovo’s demands of high image quality and accurate colors but also features DRM and chat rooms. BlendVision displays livestreaming screen and text chat simultaneously in theater mode. After the meeting, videos and recorded text will be automatically saved and converted to VOD and CSV files to allow attendees to check according to time stamps. This feature, essential to video production, successfully addresses the challenges Noovo faced in remote production meetings. Noovo CEO Hideo Uda commented, “BlendVision provides a high-quality and ultra-low latency streaming solution that allows studios to connect with their members working from home and mobile offices in real-time, and makes remote production smoother. AnimatorSpaceTokyo, a virtual production environment operated by Noovo, supports animators and animation studios to create animations in the best way to foster more excellent animation creators.”
