SVT broadcasts live from Dreamhack in HD
For the third time, SVT (the Swedish public service TV) broadcasts e-sport live from Dreamhack on SVT Play (web TV) with Intinor Direkt link:
“For the first time ever in the nation, and on a good second place in the world, SVT will also broadcast in parallel, the Starcraft finals in your usual TV. SVT 2 is the channel with start Monday from 22.45 – 01.00.”
From the city of Jönköping, video and audio is sent in HD quality over the Internet. The new technology is significantly cheaper than links via fiber or satellite, which makes it possible for SVT to broadcast live from more different types of events.
