ESL and Plays.tv Joint Effort Enables Video Game Streaming through the Eyes of the Gamer
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA: ESL, an esports organization, and Plays.tv, the video-sharing platform for gamers, have collaborated to give esports fans access to the best of ESL's Intel Extreme Masters in-game action. ESL will for the first time capture point of view (POV) recordings complete with player audio of every player and make them available exclusively on Plays.tv.
Plays.tv records matches in video format from a player's POV, including in-game communications and mouse-clicks, and makes them instantly available to be watched online from any device, unlike the traditional replays. However, the traditional spectator-view VODs will also be available on Plays.tv first, along with exclusive highlight reels and top plays from the day's matches.
"We've always wanted to have POV videos available for all our competitions, but previously it just wasn't feasible. Plays.tv has made it fast and easy to capture and upload video directly from the tournament PCs and we're excited to provide esports fans with a new viewing experience," says Nik Adams, Senior Vice President, Global Sales & Business Development, ESL. "Now, even if you followed the action live on Twitch, you'll also be able to go back and see precisely what each player was seeing and clicking on, and hear what players were saying to their teammates."
