Epiphan Pearl Live Streams Dutch PC Gaming Event

Publish date:

Informatique NL recently transformed its product warehouse into a live PC gaming venue for the company’s annual PC Gaming Days. For two days they showcased the latest in gaming mods and hardware to more than 1,500 visitors. Wanting to extend the PC Gaming Days event beyond the warehouse, Informatique chose to live stream the event to audiences near and far via Twitch and YouTube. Additionally, they needed streams for local screens and TVs in the Informatique store and for shoutcasters covering the event. For security purposes, event organizers also wanted a live stage camera stream that could be monitored from a tablet or PC.

Video Schaay, an AV integrator in the Netherlands, was brought in to provide AV equipment and technicians to make PC Gaming Days come alive. With a written list of AV show gear more than 12 pages long, Video Schaay integrators were pleased that they could add a single Epiphan Pearl system to their gear to enable live streaming simultaneously to YouTube, Twitch, shoutcasters and all the local channels needed.

The resulting live streaming experience was flawless, with a picture-in-picture view that included event identification and full HD video with crystal clear sound. “We couldn’t be happier with Pearl’s performance at this event,” says Maurice Gast of Video Schaay. “After setting up the live streams with Pearl, we were able to leave it unattended for the entirety of the two 10-hour days. It’s gear like Pearl that makes live streaming a pleasure to implement.”
