KITPLUS – Live streaming experts discuss esports

Earlier this year at the KitPlus Show, Richard Payne hosted a session about live streaming and esports with experts-in-the-field, Jon Pratchett and Alex Pettitt. They discuss the use of their favourite gear and we’re delighted that Intinor and our solutions are featured at 17.05 where Jon Pratchett states:

“For our higher end stuff we use Intinor which is a high end encoding hardware solution and arguably, in my impression, one of the best, probably THE best encoder out there for this.” 

Also discussed in the video:

  • Image, resolution and frame rate and the impact of different frame rates for players over viewers
  • Audio and comms, such as commentators feeds, sound from game, chat from players
  • Graphics, game overlays, countdowns, brackets and PiP’s
  • Networking, gamers network, streaming and production network
  • Streaming solutions, encoders and third party streaming distribution options
