Fanview are proud to be chasing another industry trophy for our cabinet this year after being shortlisted for Best Esports Production at the inaugural 2019 Broadcast Tech Innovation Awards in partnership with De Tune Company and Epic Games. This comes off the back of winning the prestigious Yahoo Sports Technology Awards Agency of the Year in May.
In just seven weeks, teams from Fanview, De Tune and Epic combined to unite 50 of the world’s most popular Fortnite pro players and 50 Fortnite-loving celebrities, including dream team Ninja and DJ Marshmello, to compete in the ultimate Fortnite event at the Banc of California stadium in Los Angeles.
Fanview worked alongside our friends at De Tune to deliver all of the broadcast operations, programming strategy and executive production along with API integration to power data-driven broadcast and in-stadium graphics.
The Fortnite Pro-Am 2018 broke Twitch records at the time with 5.3 million views and 1.7 million concurrents.
"The inaugural Broadcast Tech Innovation Awards celebrate exceptional teams behind the most outstanding broadcast productions of the past year," says Broadcast Magazine.
"These awards spotlight the industry talent creating the television productions with the biggest impact."
Every finger is well and truly crossed at Fanview HQ as we count down to the awards ceremony on October 17th, 2019.
