MLS team delivers a unique eSports experience to Twitch using Grabyo’s live, remote production tools.
While Major League Soccer (MLS) continues to practice social distancing, we partnered with Inter Miami CF to remotely broadcast live to Twitch’s Stream Aid 2020. The 12 hour event brought together the worlds of gaming, music, and sports to benefit the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
Using our cloud-based live production platform, Grabyo Producer, Inter Miami players Julián Carranza, Lewis Morgan, Lee Nguyen, and Rodolfo Pizarro were able to participate in a 70 minute live broadcast from the safety of their own home.
Inter Miami also used Grabyo’s industry-leading live clipping product to share goals, highlights, and key moments to Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to engage fans across platforms in real-time and direct them to the Twitch broadcast.
Narrated by Fernando Palomo, the official voice of EA Sports FIFA and a seasoned soccer analyst for ESPN, Inter Miami used Grabyo to create a unique eSports experience optimized for Twitch. The broadcast featured video from all five participants, with live graphics and animations promoting donations for the World Health Organization COVID-19 Solidarity Response.
Carranza and Pizarro played together as “Team RosaNegra,” while Morgan and Nguyen made up “Team Heron White.” The mini-tournament featured individual matchups before Pizarro was eventually crowned champion.
We recently introduced support for Twitch, enabling users to bring in multiple live channels at 1080p 60fps, add remote commentary, graphics, and publish live and VOD to multiple social and digital destinations alongside websites and mobile apps.
“We are delighted Inter Miami CF was able to participate in Twitch Stream Aid. Despite practicing social distancing, partnering with Grabyo enabled us to produce a professional, high quality Twitch broadcast with our players from the safety of their homes. Technology partnerships such as this are crucial to us maintaining a relationship with our fans.” Jean Manuel Jiminez, VP Content, Digital & Broadcast, Inter Miami CF
