Facebook, Google and Apple in pushing the boundaries of this new digital
3D product placement of brand models to deliver advertising — in games,
business, entertainment or sports XR environments. Trivver’s comprehensive XR
advertising platform leverages its suite of patented technologies to deliver 3D
branded objects across environments and platforms, enabling a single model to
autoscale to fit seamlessly with multiple environments. With this technology,
Trivver is poised to enable the adoption, commercialization and monetization of
