IHSE USA Jumps Into the Gaming Action at First-Ever NAB2019 Esports Experience, Highlighting All-New Draco ultra DP 240
"The NAB Esports Experience promises to be one of the most exciting and best-attended events at this year's show, and we're proud to be a part of it. Every day, the esports stage will be filled with popular gaming influencers and esports professionals competing in live tournaments, and attendees will get the opportunity to practice their gaming skills," said Dan Holland, marketing manager for IHSE USA, LLC. "The Esports Experience brings together the best parts of the fast-growing gaming segment into one immersive activation, with the spotlight on powerful new enabling technologies like our Draco ultra DP 240 extenders. This new product is designed to deliver the higher refresh rates — up to 240Hz at full 1080p resolutions — that competitive gamers demand."
IHSE USA is also hosting a panel forum, "Before the Games Begin: A Behind-the-Screens Look at Building Amazing Esports Infrastructure," at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, April 9 in Booth N1522. The audience will gain insights about how broadcast technology can be used for esporting events, and they will also hear firsthand why broadcast equipment manufacturers are increasing their involvement in esports engagement. The session will include discussions of cutting-edge installations as well as control-room and in-venue production designs that move esports operations to advanced levels. Industry leaders from top gaming companies will present success stories of how designers, gaming developers, and live event planners achieve amazing results for the latest esports fan experiences.
Esports is the perfect application for a custom-designed, dependable KVM extender. Gaming pros typically require a lot of screens, both onstage and elsewhere, in a venue that can offer sufficient support for high-end, distributed video and direct computer access, together with minimal latency or mouse lag. Also, the backstage areas tend to be larger because the players and teams need to practice in those spaces. With Draco ultra DP 240, gamers have a single point of control for accessing and managing all of these sources from any location in a gaming venue. They're able to see sharp visuals during fast-action game play with smoother mouse action compared to a typical 60Hz display.
Holland added, "For over 35 years, IHSE USA has been offering traditional KVM systems and delivering best-in-breed performance for display management applications in live arena sports, mobile sports production, and live-event broadcasting. Now, we're happy to extend this powerful extender technology with all-new Draco ultra DP 240, which raises the performance bar for the next generation of esports stadiums."
