According to the press release: "With the SDK, developers can map viewer interactions from a game onto the video itself in real-time. Genvid has developed patented technology that can generate uses for data synchronized to these streams. As a result, livestreams can be monetized through transactions that are uniquely targeted to the individual watching, leading to a significant revenue opportunity for game developers through sponsorships and in-stream purchases."

"As platforms and game developers find new ways to innovate, we’re delighted that they’re increasingly turning to Genvid for solutions to improve the user experience and engage with audiences," said Jacob Navok, CEO, Genvid. "Since our initial launch last year, many top titles are already integrating and some are building exclusive content on our technology."

Genvid COO Christopher Cataldi: "We are additionally very excited for the recent launch of Twitch’s Extensions program, which we intend to support inside our SDK so developers can use Genvid to significantly lower the amount of work they have to do to get Extensions working and stream directly on Twitch.tv."

A lot of games, esports tournament providers, and platforms have already entered Genvid’s integration pipeline. This includes development of a new interface for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive streams.

"Genvid has been leading the interactive streaming revolution, connecting developers to platforms and enabling them to generate streams and revenues they would otherwise not have access to," said Gregory Milken from March Capital. "We’re excited to see all of the progress Genvid has made as they continue to expand their offerings and partner with leading developers and titles such as CGSO."
