LOS ANGELES and TEL AVIV, Israel (PRWEB) October 05, 2021
Arti, creators of the first cloud-based AR platform for video content creators, and ESTV, the first 24/7 dedicated channel for esports and gaming personalities, today announced a partnership to bring AR content to ESTV’s original programming, and to make the Arti AR Platform available to ESTV content partners through its technology marketplace.
“ESTV viewers are used to the non-stop visual excitement of gaming, so they’re hungry for 3D graphics and AR in any esports content or commentary—making this partnership a very natural fit,” said Arti Co-founder & CEO, Yaron Zakai-Or. “We’re excited to partner with ESTV to bring the magic of AR to their content, and to provide an easy, flexible, affordable AR option for their many content partners.”
Arti is like having an AR studio that fits in your pocket. Unlike traditional AR solutions that require costly on-premise hardware and are designed to be used by dedicated AR design teams in a studio, Arti is a hardware-free, cloud-based AR platform that creates exciting new opportunities for video content creators to deliver engaging stories with gaming-grade AR and data, from anywhere.
ESTV was launched in 2019 to meet the demand for round-the-clock coverage of esports athletes and gaming franchises from an insider perspective. Today, it’s the first dedicated channel for esports and gaming personalities, with programming available on various digital, over-the-top video, and basic cable platforms, including Roku, Amazon, Samsung, Sling, and more.

And with Arti in our marketplace, our growing list of content partners will be able to engage viewers with AR across more of our programming.”
