― XRX STUDIO, a cross-DJN organization, forms four specialized teams and launches its “Integrated Metaverse Solutions” ―
XRX STUDIO*1, the co-creative organization launched by Dentsu Innovation Initiative, the organization that promotes R&D for Dentsu Japan Network (DJN)*2, and five DJN companies, provides integrated support for companies to utilize the metaverse. Starting from today, they will offer their new “Integrated Metaverse Solutions” to further create and expand the market. This is a solution that comprehensively supports marketing and business development utilizing the metaverse, promoted by client companies and partner companies such as those involved in content and media.
In order to use the metaverse-related knowledge of each Dentsu Group company for corporate support, four expert teams specializing in the areas of business development, owned media development, store development, and integrated promotion have been formed within XRX STUDIO. In each of these areas, they will provide integrated support such as business plan formulation (monetization design), partner development, UI/UX planning, implementation, data acquisition and analysis, PDCA cycle, and investment.

In addition to the diverse human resources and expertise of each Dentsu Japan Network company, XRX STUDIO co-creates with advanced technology development companies and is undertaking various initiatives, from service infrastructure development with client companies and partner companies in the metaverse field, to research on advertising models. At the Tokyo Game Show VR held in 2021, XRX STUDIO provided the first Tokyo Game Show metaverse platform, and in collaboration with NTT, used that company’s DOOR™*3 to demonstrate advertising models and commerce in a large-scale metaverse space*4. The organization also participated in the XR Consortium*5 and the Japan Digital Spatial Economic Federation*6 in order to contribute to the development of the industry as a whole. Through XRX STUDIO and other measures, DJN will continue to expand its solutions while deepening cooperation with various players and contribute to the further creation and expansion of the metaverse market.
