The brand new collaborative esports video platform Insights.gg has officially launched to the public after a successful beta testing phase.
“We were originally hired by pro teams to conduct data analysis on their team’s performance. However, we quickly realised the problem wasn’t a lack of data, but it was a lack of technology around reviewing and critiquing game footage.”Kevin Ho, CEO of Insights.gg on the formation of the platform
“Insights.gg is the only all-in-one platform to allow asynchronous and live review, map and hero icons for strategy sessions, and timestamped comments with drawing tools for frame-by-frame analysis. There really is no standard in place, and the hassle of setting up a review system leads many teams to skip the vital process altogether. Instead, teams can take a minute to sign up for Insights.gg, and instantly have the best game review system for their players.”
Insight.gg : An all-in-one collaborative platform for competitive e-sports
Kevin Ho further explained that the typical procedure of a team’s reviewing process includes recording game footage, uploading it to YouTube, saving notes on Google Drive, then sharing feedback via Discord. Not only does this process prove to be unnecceasry lengthy and spans across multiple platform, it is also insecure as there is the possibility of key pro teams information being leaked to outsiders.
As the scale of E-sports continues to grow over the years (Total esports viewership is expected to grow at a 9% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) between 2019 and 2023, up from 454 million in 2019 to 646 million in 2023, per Insider Intelligence estimates), the value of team’s scrimmage data will continue to propel. Therefore it is vital to have a secure platform.
Some of the features of the collaborative platform includes:
- Video collaboration tools
- Real-time collaboration across operating systems and devices
- Extracting key statistics using computer vision
- Cloud-based gameplay depository
Insights.gg has currently raised over $1m (€707,333) from esports angel investors and will open its next investment round in Fall 2021
