ESL FACEIT Group (EFG) announced this week a partnership with Appario Global Solutions (AGS) to use its GhostFrame technology for future broadcasts.

Financial terms and duration of the deal were not disclosed.

Under the terms of the deal, the GhostFrame technology will be used to enhance EFG’s live broadcasts and highlights packages, beginning with Intel Extreme Masters (IEM) Cologne 2023. This also represents the first time that the technology will be used in an esports arena setting, according to EFG.

According to a release, using the GhostFrame technology will allow fans tuning into the live broadcasts of IEM Cologne 2023 to experience enhanced viewing features such as “realistic graphic layovers on broadcasts, hidden camera tracking, and multiple source video feeds.”

IEM Cologne began on July 26 and runs until Aug. 6. The final three days of the competition will be held in front of a live crowd at the LANXESS arena in Cologne, Germany, with the top six Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) teams from around the world facing off for a share of the $1M USD prize pool.
