The streaming platform “PLATTO”, which is specialized in subcultures such as anime, voice actors/actresses, and games, started its service on May 26, 2020. At the same time, the first lineup of performers from the “PLATTO Reading Performance” by voice actors/actresses and 2.5-dimensional actors starting on Jun. 6 was announced.
The service name “PLATTO” is a made-up word that combines “Platform” that represents software and services that form the basis of the system, a Japanese word “Puratto”, which means you can stroll and watch, and “Plat”, which means a map. The idea of the logo design comes from spotlighting the performers even in the streaming space.
It operates with the streaming technology utilizing the function of “SPWN Portal”, which creates a new experience by fusing real and virtual worlds. “PLATTO” will utilize AR and real-time CG, etc. to distribute more advanced services than existing services.
It will also start “PLATTO Reading Performance” using the “PLATTO” system from Jun. 6 to deliver high quality reading performance even in the remote distribution environment.
