Evertz partners with Esports Engine to provide live replay systems for sports broadcasts

The company Evertz has recently announced that Esports Engine has deployed the DreamCatcherTM BRAVO Studio live production replay platform for their major esports broadcasts. The reason of the addition was that Esports Engine needed a live production and replay solution to scale with the requirements of the rapidly growing esports industry.

Esports Engine first deployed Evertz’s DreamCatcherTM BRAVO Studio cloud cluster in October 2021 for a competition. There it used the live production platform to power 16 total 1080p NDI inputs on Amazon Web Services (AWS), while using an S3 bucket to distribute video. By leveraging the DreamCatcherTM BRAVO Studio capability two replay operators located on-site can connect to DreamCatcherTM BRAVO Studio using the platform’s web interface and remote desktop control panel, isolate replays and highlights in real time and return that content to the cloud for production use.

Using NDI, SRT, RIST, RTMPE and RTMPS protocols, multiple sources in different formats can be sent to a DreamCatcherTM BRAVO Studio in the cloud where Esports Engine’s operational staff located remotely or in its studios in Burbank, California or Columbus, Ohio, can access the sources, produce programs in the cloud, and then send them to a media asset management (MAM) service or to a cloud distribution platform for playout to content delivery networks (CDNs). The system also is integrated with MAGNUM unified control and orchestration system

“Providing content creators with the flexibility to disperse and reassign resources to achieve greater productivity is one of the key advantages DreamCatcherTM BRAVO Studio delivers,” said Nima Malekmanesh, Director of Business Development – Live Media for Evertz. “Evertz is proud of the partnership we have established with Esports Engine, and we are excited to continue working together to build live events and productions that push the boundary of the esports market.”
