Free Unreal Engine resources for Broadcast & Live Events

We’ve assembled our top real-time Broadcast & Live Events resources for anyone looking to break in or build out eye-catching work. Have a look. 

Back from IBC

XR was the talk of the show, and for good reason. More fidelity, better reflections, and an easy way for talent to track how they’re interacting with a 3D environment are all things broadcasters want. We were pleased to see Unreal Engine applications—a key driver for this trend—in nearly 20 booths and surprise people with a sneak peek of Project Avalanche (which remains our secret…for now).

We’re also getting a lot of questions about how to find the right vendors/Unreal Engine specialists as real-time shows and events start to ramp up. Some good news there—we’ll be launching a Partner Portal soon, which will make it easier to find both.

Thank you to our partners!

Now that Broadcast & Live Events Week has wrapped, something needs to be said. We couldn’t have done it without all the studios, artists, and technology partners who showed up, weighed in, and helped make this week special for anyone who’s interested in real-time graphics. Thank you so much for lending your time and expertise. It was fun to work with you on this!
