Plazamedia employs more than 150 people and produces more than 2000 events each year, soon to include an rapidly growing number of eSport-events.
Plazamedia’s Head of MCR Stefan Valentin said,
“With esports coming onstream very quickly, we knew we needed additional flexibility and power. We discovered that Intinor’s Direkt Router is the Swedish Army knife of IP-stream orchestration.
Two of the Direkt Routers will be used solely for the new ‘eSPORTS1’ channel that Plazamedia will produce that includes events for League of Legends; Dota 2; Counter Strike; Overwatch; or FIFA 19 and the remaining router will be used to boost capabilities for one of Plazamedia’s primary productions, horse racing. Especially the new HLS-pull and RTMP-receive functionality allows Direkt to generate the url+streamname and interface directly with Plazamedia’s esport production partners.”
Many esports producers in the region have already chosen to use the Direkt Link 400 rack+ an encoder that includes Intinor’s proprietary BRT™ (Bifrost Reliable transport) stream protocol that easily provides a high-quality redundant stream. Intinor CEO Roland Axelsson said, “Plazamedia is very much at the forefront of new and exciting productions, including its entry into esports and we are delighted to acknowledge their confidence in Direkt. It’s multiple capabilities are perfect for the types of productions Plazamedia, and many others, are undertaking.”
