You didn’t think the spring would be boring, did you? Hold on to your hats as we head into summer!

Working With the NHL

No body checks here! We had the honor of supporting the NHL once again in last week’s production of the Draft Lottery. Using our FrireBridge technology, 16 teams from across Canada and the U.S. remotely participated in the show. The show aired on ESPN, ESPN+ and nationally in Canada as the lottery order for the 2022 draft was revealed. The Montreal Canadiens took home the #1 spot.

BitFire was once again at all the best events and in the hottest locales over the last month. Check it out:

Alongside our friends at Holley Video, we supported the Grand Finale of the American Song Contest on NBC hosted by Snoop Dogg and Kelly Clarkson. We transmitted live feeds of multiple fan watch parties across the country that aired live during the show. Read the Sports Video Group article and press release

Together with our partners at Do Not Peek, we celebrated the 100th episode of VALORANTING, a weekly show focusing on the competitive esports world. The limitless capabilities of the new BitFire Studios were on full display.

Continuing our work in the exploding world of esports, we had the incredible opportunity to produce and live stream the first ever Accelerator Cup on our LED stage. It was a face-off between Esports at Syracuse University & Clemson Esports and co-produced in both Phoenix and Syracuse by BitFire, Bandit Productions, Do Not Peek and the Newhouse Sports Media Center.
