Blast TV, the global esports media network delivering world class entertainment experiences, has selected EVS’ market-leading VIA and Media Infrastructure solutions as the backbone of its new esports production flypack.
The mobile solution is designed so that Blast TV can produce its own live gaming events in-house. With the Covid-19 lockdown impacting mass gatherings, the flexibility of the EVS live production workflow is enabling the eSports giant to put on online-only events instead.
“Our priority is delivering world leading eSports entertainment to our audience, in both pandemic and non-pandemic times, so partnering with a cutting-edge technology provider like EVS makes perfect sense,” said Andrew Haworth, Director of Operations & Production at Blast TV. “EVS’ approach to this project has been incredible, understanding our unique challenges and then working through detailed technical workflows to allow us to produce however we want and beyond.”
“Blast TV was faced with a unique combination of challenges. These required it to adapt to new ways of producing large-scale live eSports events while still providing the high level of quality and engagement its fans expect,” said Nicolas Bourdon, Chief Marketing Officer at EVS. “Our high-end live production solutions along with our new range of control and monitoring tools raise Blast’s operations to the next level with greater speed, control and flexibility.”
