IBC is introducing a new event, the IBC Esports Showcase, that taps into the considerable esports expertise of major broadcast organisations to provide a valuable insight into this rapidly growing genre for those involved in media and entertainment.
IHSE is sponsoring the showcase, alongside other esports industry leaders including EVS, ESL, Lagardère and NEP. Mark Hempel, head of product management at IHSE will present an outline of effective solutions in delivering the seamless technical delivery of esports broadcast.
“Major esports events are attended by thousands of passionate spectators in major venues and watched by millions online. To provide greatest efficiency and excitement the industry needs to offer streamlined solutions that integrate the separate broadcast and presentation workflows together. Not only will these simplify the on-site infrastructure but will ensure that the same content is available everywhere at a pristine quality level to greatly enhance the overall impact of the event and enjoyment of viewers.’ said Mark Hempel, Head of Product Management at IHSE.
“The esports focused events and activities that we presented at last year’s show were incredibly popular, underlining the unprecedented opportunities that the esports market represents. This year we have created a dedicated showcase with leading industry experts who will examine the state of the industry, separate the hype from the real value, highlight the production challenges and much more. It will be an unmissable day for anyone with an interest in esports.” said Steve Connolly, Business Development Director, IBC.
Free to all IBC 2019 exhibition visitors, the event takes place from 9.30 am to 5 pm on Tuesday 17 September at RAI Amsterdam.
