Giga Techno Vision Co., Ltd.
We are a group of engineers who value originality in the field of wireless telecommunications.
Our company specializes in video/audio transmission that involves no delay time while sending/receiving high-quality images. We develop, manufacture, and sell compact, energy-saving industrial wireless devices that strongly emphasize security. Sending/receiving uncompressed video/audio data without delay time is useful in emergency situations where every second counts, or when remotely operating a wireless camera for robots or heavy construction machinery. Operations can be smoother. Our devices were also made to have multiple channels through an OFDM (orthogonal frequency division multiplexing) communication system. This is because we adopted a SAW convolver device, which is a product of joint development with the Research Institute of Electrical Communication at Tohoku University. This feature can reduce multipath fading.
- Our company specializes in manufacturing no-delay radio equipment for audiovisual transmission. We can provide demo devices and have a complete follow-up system.
Our company always lends a demonstration machine for on-site testing to customers considering product purchase. We sell products only after product evaluation by the customer.
Our radios are all certified with regard to conformance with technical standards and are all visual delay-free. Delays between transmission and reception are on the order of microseconds. They are unique products in terms of compactness and energy conservation.
Our products are popularly used for cranes, heavy-duty machines, and other construction machines. They are also widely applied to wireless equipment for emergency community broadcasting, robots, drones for aerial shooting, wireless cameras, and equipment for river surveillance, tunneling works, and blast furnace surveillance.
[Company strength] Our company excels at developing wireless devices that transmit video (standard and high-definition) and audio data using radio waves without delay time. This is done by making use of our original wireless technology from 30 years of operation. We are a fabless company that is composed of R&D-oriented engineers. We have a small number of engineers and they are all highly skilled, so we quickly respond to inquiries, which makes our customers very pleased. Our products are designed in-house. The electronic components are selected from only Japan-made and US-made products. Assembly is conducted by a domestic partner company (ISO 9001/14001 certified), and final adjustments are made within our company before putting the device on sale (genuine made-in-Japan products). We provide reliable after-sales service as a telecommunications device manufacturer, which cannot be found with other companies. [Business description] Our company develops, manufactures, and sells unique industrial wireless devices that differ from any other commercially available wireless LAN. The main feature of our compact, energy-saving, high-secrecy devices is that they involve no delay time in viewing while sending/receiving high-definition video and audio. We also offer consignment design and technical consulting services for wireless devices that adopt our unique uncompressed video/audio transmission method. We separately offer cameras, recorders, monitors, and cables for wireless video/audio transmission systems through direct sales, sales agencies, and websites. [Industry] Wireless device manufacturing [Strength of products/technologies] We develop, manufacture, and sell only certified devices (technical standards compliance) that eliminate delay time using uncompressed data. More than 95% of products in the wireless device market for video/audio transmission have a delay time when sending/receiving data. This delay time of around one second can be a huge problem, especially for emergency monitoring for tsunamis. Delay time also disables remote control of wireless cameras that are used for robots and heavy construction machinery. The elimination of delay time is quite important for industrial wireless devices, unlike wireless devices where the users do not mind delay in the image. We solved this delay time issue with our wireless devices. [Representative's message] Our company consists of engineers who value unique technology that is full of originality in the wireless telecommunications field. We will continue to focus on industry-university collaboration and market cultivation by meeting potential customers and discussing possible future arrangements. We also plan to increase overseas sales of special-purpose products (industrial wireless devices) mainly in Europe and North America through trading companies. In the domestic Japanese market we will strive to contribute to society as best we can by supplementing labor shortages in infrastructure projects with our wireless technology. [Company structure for market development/overseas expansion] We use multiple Internet advertisements offered by Yahoo! and Ipors for promotion as part of our sales strengthening efforts. Our sales representatives accompany sales personnel from sales agencies to conduct demonstrations in front of the customer. We always make sure that the customer checks to see if the demo unit can be smoothly used in the field before making the actual purchase. Thanks to this we have had no trouble with our customers so far. We have already made an English version of our catalog for future sales expansion overseas, so we think that our current need is to find sales agencies in other countries. [Market share/Ranking] Our wireless devices are intended for special (professional) uses. It is difficult to determine market share because no other product in the overseas or domestic Japanese markets is exactly the same. However, considering sales when this company was founded it can be said that market needs are certainly on the rise. [Awards and media coverage] [Media] Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun (December 19, 2008).

He is a member of the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers (IEIC) and Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). [Joint research and development] The AW convolver device (synchronization correlator for reception) is a key device for spectral spreading (SS) transmission. The R&D was done jointly with the Research Institute of Electrical Communication at Tohoku University, and we have had ongoing technological exchanges with them ever since. This device will be utilized to boost the development of high-security multi-channel wireless device for audio/video transmission. This unique device is available from us as a modularized item.
