Esports / Gaming Whitepaper
Display Management in Esports Applications. Integrated content processing and broadcast workflows for efficient esports event management.
While the term Esports is increasingly perceived as being misleading, the competitive nature of most online games of various categories and the production requirements at live Esports events are very similar to the challenge typical sports venue productions encounter.
For IHSE, a leader in Display Management technology and KVM (Keyboard Video Mouse) extension and switching solutions, the factors determining a flawless gamer experience, arena operation and professional AV production for streaming and broadcasting are particularly relevant. Any human user interface extension, signal switching, video format conversion and video wall adaption has to comply with the needs of competitive, professional players, the audience as well as venue operators. In the case of a live event when teams of online players compete, systems must enable the best possible workflow for the production crew and meet the expectations of the venue audience as well as the viewers of live or on demand streamed content via twitch.tv or youtube.com.
