Allied Esports announced that the company has recently teamed up with Xsens to bring live animated broadcasters to professional esports tournaments for the first time. Robert Jan Kortooms (@RJcasts) and Thiadrik Oldersma (@Toldersma) are the casters expected to be inside the motion capture suits.
“As gaming and esports viewership continues to grow, we need to push the boundaries of competitive content to provide new and engaging viewing experiences for our audiences and partners,” said Jud Hannigan, CEO of Allied Esports. “We’re thrilled to make history again with the Legend Series and use Xsens’ innovative motion capture animation technology to create a first-of-its-kind broadcast experience in esports.”
Xsens’ MVN motion capture systems will debut at the three-day, $5,900, winner-take-all CS:GO Legend Series tournament in April. This will be the seventh CS:GO Tournament put on by Allied Esports.
