GITAI Inc. raised  (US$)1.25M from ANRI and 500 Startups Japan as seed round funding.

GITAI is the startup venture to realize “Avatar” by developing exclusive P2P communication technology and OS for humanoid telepresence robot using the 360-degree camera.

Primarily, the technology of 360-degree video P2P streaming to VR HMD via the wireless internet connection is expected to spread as the next-generation interface of remote control and remote communication.

We developed original OS and P2P communication technology to reduce delay and data volume of 360-degree video P2P streaming to VR HMD via wireless internet connection such as standard Wifi / 4G mobile network.
– Delay: 80ms on average
– Data volume: 1Mbps on average  (original data volume: 330Mbps)
*Experiment environment: RICOH THETA S, HTC VIVE, standard WiFi

This financing will be used to hire additional talented team members.
