AnimaChat - How It Works
Animachat enables your animated mascot to have real-time interaction and 2-way chat with your customers.
One operator, hooked up to our animation brain, can interact with your audience and effortlessly control your animated character enabling real-time mascot movement and conversation.
Performances can be delivered from anywhere in the world. One operator can stream to multiple venues over the internet.
As much or as little motion capture as needed for every outcome. No cameras and easy to put on and start action. Most shows use some level of 'mocap'.
AnimaChat is the show-stopping product from Animalive that enables your audience to talk directly to your branded mascot.
In the AnimaChat package, we provide you with everything you need to deliver the unique, magical experience of AnimaChat.
The package contains an AnimaServer, an AnimaClient, and basic Animalive Content to get you up and running with our ground-breaking technology guaranteed to transform your venue.
AnimaServer is the central control unit of AnimaChat. It streams your performance to any clients that are connected to your AnimaServer. It is also the place where all your amazing content lives.

The software that powers AnimaChat. Updates to the latest version included for one year.
AnimaClient is the audience side of AnimaChat, receiving the stream from the operator/performer/server.
Your digital mascot performance outputs to a 'main' display for your audience to interact with in real-time. A hidden camera and mic (usually used by a human co-host as well as the audience) relays any audience interaction back to the server.
