BLAST outlines its broadcast innovations for the Fall Final
The tournament organiser will be bringing 4K, new camera angles, and AI help to its broadcast.
The tournament organiser, BLAST, has revealed that it will be improving its broadcasting efforts starting with the Counter-Strike BLAST Premier Fall Final. Starting today and running until Sunday, the major event will feature a variety of new broadcast elements and features.
This includes more angles such as ones aimed at players and coaches, as well as 4K/60 fps in-game gameplay exclusively on BLAST.tv. There will also be mic'd up moments following games, as well as in-game predictions that use AI to make snap judgements about which team is most likely to win a match, and so forth. Lastly, there will be new and updated graphics and visual elements.
Speaking about the improvements, BLAST.tv's creative director, Lasse Vig Jensen, stated: "We're experimenting. Something might not work, but then we'll change it."
The Fall Final is live right now, with the grand finals planned for Sunday, November 26.
