Jumping into the deep end as far as showcasing our streaming and filming credentials the request from our friends at Extreme Gaming to work with Gfinity and Microsoft to stream and film live this ‘GEARS of War 4’ showcase was an opportunity we could not pass up.
Our High end gaming PC’s with their Black Magic streaming cards were perfect for the job along with our editing machines and associated vision mixer and digital audio desk and a camera crew with associated cameras, so we rolled up our sleeves and got stuck in.
The squad members of Team Epsilon and Team Excel put on their game faces and after their showcase had time to take on some of the staff from Microsoft much to the delight of onlookers.
The day before gave us time to test the stability and bandwidth of the feed at the venue to the Microsoft servers and get all the equipment in position ready for the awards night.
The resulting live stream went down really well and with the help of some great camera shots and show calling along with the live commentary on the night, it rounded off a great setup and to be involved at this level with the 1st event for the Esports Industry Awards has been a great addition to our ever expanding list of credits and associations within the gaming industry.
