The pair will provide a 360° service for esports competitions
Production Resource Group and Super League Gaming have formed a partnership to provide event support to the esports community.
PRG will add its production services, including camera, virtual production, audio, broadcasting, and content team and operations to Super League’s xperience running tournaments and producing premium esports broadcasts and accompanying shareable digital content to provide what aims to be a 360° service.
PRG already supports a number of esports competitions, including the Fortnite World Cup, Fortnite PRO AM, League of Legends, ESL One New York, Madden’s NFL Championship, Dream Hack, Gamescom ONL, and ELEAGUE. It also has virtual production and XR capabilities that are currently being used by the Fortnite Spotlight Series.
Chief commercial officer of Super League Gaming, Matt Edelman, said: “The esports ecosystem is extremely broad and varied, and decidedly global. Together, Super League and PRG can leverage our diverse strengths and networks to push past current boundaries of the esports event fan experience, elevating all touchpoints from gameplay to sponsorship activations to live music to digital-to-physical engagement.”
He added: “PRG’s xR capabilities offer us the opportunity to help reimagine game releases and showcase gaming worlds like never before. Leveraging this new technology alongside our Virtualis Studios cloud-based remote production system will enable a new suite of solutions designed to deliver lasting memories to fans all over the world.”
John Davidson, director of business development, esports for PRG, said: “PRG’s extensive capabilities in live, hybrid and virtual events and our cutting-edge technology allows us to break barriers and create unforgettable experiences. Together with Super League, we will create events that are more enjoyable for fans and effective for teams, leagues, and sponsors.”
