Supersphere Brings Esports to Life With Tailored VR, AR Solutions
The Sports Video Group welcomes Supersphere as a new corporate sponsor. Founded in 2014, the company is an immersive-content firm focused on building stronger bonds between fans and the teams and competitors they love. It is uniquely positioned to bring immersive broadcasts of esports and “IRL sports” to life with a custom technology stack designed to provide smooth integration of current broadcast technology with the new world of VR, AR, and MR.
In 2019 alone, Supersphere produced more than 50 VR live-streamed productions. In esports, working with Oculus and ESL, the company has produced and broadcast ESL One at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, ESL One in Hamburg, Intel Extreme Masters in Beijing, and ESL Pro League in Odense, Denmark. This continues an ongoing series of major esports tournaments delivered in an immersive, social VR format, advancing the esports fan experience.
Supersphere is immersed in other types of broadcasts as well. Last year, it produced and broadcast live VR music events with Billboard-chart–topping artists, including Post Malone and Billie Eilish. Other headline artists featured by Supersphere have included H.E.R., Tenacious D, Vince Staples, The Revivalists, and dozens of others, showcasing the continued evolution of the music experience.
