■Able to detect multiple attribute information simultaneously
With existing image analysis techniques, only objects shown in the images were recognized. “VRCHEL” conducts multiple analyses, including image analysis, voice recognitions and natural language processing by using its pattern recognitions & machine learning functions. Thus, it can grasp details of a summary of the content, including scene configurations, properties of the performers, languages and atmospheres as well as locations, objects and corporate brands.

■Learning users’ viewing behavior
“VRCHEL” will continuously be able to improve its recognitions by learning users’ viewing behaviors from the applications, which are being distributed as well as its content data introduced in the beginning. In addition, it learns viewing patterns and preferences in each country & industry to find the best content or information for users.

■Analysis of 2D movies and commercial videos
As it analyzes 2D movies and commercial videos as well as 360 VR images, “VRCHEL” is able to obtain detailed properties of information. Accordingly, it enables automatic business matchings in the video industry, and it will also expand cross-border business opportunities with its translating function.
