Aiming to boost performance of its live streaming and recording applications, SplitmediaLabs has announced upcoming support for Intel RealSense technology across its key video applications.

Hong Kong-based SplitmediaLabs specialises in the development of multimedia applications and technology, such as XSplit Broadcaster and XSplit Gamecaster which allow users to upload and share gaming moments to popular online video services such as Twitch and YouTube.

With a user base ranging from hobbyists to prominent professional casters in more than 150 countries, XSplit Broadcaster is one of the most popular and widely used applications for live Internet broadcasting, XSplit allows users to record or live stream any type of media, while taking advantage of TV-like broadcasting features. The Intel partnership is seen as providing a particular fillip to graphics performance.

"We are excited to be working with SplitmediaLabs in bringing immersive streaming experiences to the Twitch community," said Intel RealSense Technology director of marketing Anil Nanduri. "The automatic background removal capabilities provided by Intel RealSense technology relinquish the need for a green screen."

"We're delighted to forge this new relationship with Intel and excited to work with the Intel RealSense ecosystem to give gamers and broadcasters even more freedom to customise their live broadcasts and recordings in a simple way," added SplitmediaLabs CEO Henrik Levring.
