ESL Gaming America, an esports production and events company, are utilising Quicklink Studio (ST55) to introduce high-quality remote talent into global esports tournaments. Helping gaming communities thrive for over 15 years, ESL Gaming America create engaging content that unites players, fans, and creators around the world. Through the use of Quicklink Studio, ESL are able to easily introduce remote talent from around the world in high-quality and ultra-low latency.
Quicklink Studio was initially adopted by ESL Gaming America during the COVID-19 pandemic as their main solution for call-ins, on-air and point-to-point calls, after having previously used the Quicklink TX (Skype TX) for all of their high-quality remote guest contributions. Since, ESL have utilised Quicklink Studio for a wide range of clients and projects as their main call-in solution for remote guests and talent across the world. High-quality player interviews that provide an ‘In-the-studio’ feeling, have been made possible with Quicklink, allowing for players in remote parts of the world to contribute broadcast-quality video and audio.
Utilising the Quicklink Manager, ESL Gaming America have full remote operational control over remote guests, Quicklink’s contribution hardware (ST500 & ST150), as well as Quicklink Studio Severs (ST100, ST102, ST208 & ST200), which provides professional broadcast outputs. The Quicklink Manager is intuitive, user-friendly, language-localised and designed with ease-of-use in mind.

Quicklink Studio allows us to effortlessly implement our remote talent and player interviews as if they’re walking into the studio completely ready to go.” said Michael Murray, Senior Broadcast Engineer at ESL FACEIT Group
