SplitmediaLabs Limited (“SplitmediaLabs”) and AsiaSoft Online Pte Ltd (“Asiasoft”) are pleased to announce a brand new partnership that combines the strengths of each company to transform live streaming throughout Southeast Asia by establishing a new breed of production studios throughout 2015.
This landmark partnership between the software company and games publisher aims to redefine the way eSports is broadcast throughout Southeast Asia by establishing high quality XSplit-powered locations throughout the region. XSplit, an online platform for easy live streaming, recording and online video sharing, will be managed at Asiasoft Studios located in Thailand, Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Vietnam, where it will run livestream event productions and joint promotions agreed by the two companies.
SplitmediaLabs and AsiaSoft’s shared vision for this partnership is to create a home for broadcasting high-quality gaming by creating professional and industry-standard venues throughout the region, exclusively created to host and livestream eSports tournaments and events.
“XSplit’s commitment to innovation has provided us with a powerful and cost-effective broadcast solution that we are sure will help in furthering our efforts in growing eSports live production throughout Southeast Asia,” said Koh Yung Tek, eSports business manager of AsiaSoft.
Acting as liaison between both organizations, SplitmediaLabs is also pleased to announce the appointment of Yu Sheng Tan, better known as “Farpenoodle”, as the XSplit Senior Production Engineer and the head of the XSplit Event Production Team. Yu Sheng Tan is probably best known as the developer of Stream Control, a simple program that works with XSplit to allow for complex visual layouts in live streaming events.
Over the coming months, Yu Sheng Tan will work closely with AsiaSoft and XSplit’s Media Production Team to set-up studios throughout the continent, beginning with Manila, Philippines.
“Tan is an important appointment for SplitmediaLabs as he brings extensive experience and knowledge of live production that will help drive XSplit’s continued innovation.” said Henrik Levring, CEO of Splitmedialabs. “This new partnership with Asiasoft will help forge the growth of live streaming throughout Southeast Asia, and we’re thrilled to be part of what will become a milestone moment for eSports throughout this region.”
SplitmediaLabs and AsiaSoft will commence their partnership in Q1 2015, with the intention of creating ten live studios by the end of 2015.
