SAN MATEO, Calif., Sept. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Boom unleashes Crosshair technology – the latest and most impressive tool in their digital bag of tricks, set to empower streamers on all levels and take their viewers' experience to new innovative, interactive heights.
To demonstrate this groundbreaking tech, Boom has partnered with uber-popular Streamer and Influencer, DrDisRespect, empowering him to organize a fun-filled, casual weekly tournament he's calling CODE RED! Beginning on September 20, Doc will invite 80 of the world's best players to go head-to-head, with $20,000 in sponsorship prizes on the line every week.
Unleashing Crosshair tech, as well as Boom's online platform upon an unsuspecting public, this tournament lets viewers become active participants in the mayhem. Here's how it works:
Crosshair is built to detect in-game events and stats from live gamestreams using advanced
computer vision and machine learning. The beauty of it is that it doesn't need to be baked into game development. Boom's system integrates effortlessly with any supported game, and already works with many of today's hottest Battle Royal titles like Fortnite and PUBG, with COD Blackout support coming as soon as next week.
This unprecedented stream integration empowers the organization of community challenges, hosted tournaments, one-on-one matchups, and more, harnessing the power of Boom's tech and real time in-game predictions. The platform also allows you to jump into the fray yourself – players have the chance to enter live tournaments, hosted by top Streamers, where they compete in high score challenges and stand to win prizes like in-game items and exclusive merchandise. And Crosshair works with your favorite gaming and streaming platforms so there's no need to leave the comfort of Twitch (or whatever happens to be your platform of choice) to get in on the action.
Boom's mission is to help Streamers on every level grow, monetize, and engage with their existing audience in exciting and unprecedented ways. Back in 2017 they launched to Streamers with a Replay toolset that quickly became the first viral app on Twitch, generating replays that reach over ten million monthly viewers to this day. With Crosshair, Boom continues to fill out its toolkit with more tech that is poised to bring its innovative approach to livestream social engagement to an even wider audience.
Join us on September 20 as Boom and DrDisRespect take the internet by storm with
Crosshair. Follow along, put it all on the line, predict, and win, as your Streaming experience and entertainment as we know it evolves. https://boom.tv
