Chessdom Arena with live chess broadcast
While designing the complete version of the playing platform, Chessdom Arena launched a live chess broadcast zone on December 1st, 2013. For the first time chess fans can enjoy live games from tournaments with triple engine analysis – by the engines Komodo (champion of the last TCEC Season), Stockfish (many times TCEC finalist), and Houdini (champion of the previous TCEC Season). The new broadcasting style quickly gained popularity among the audience and the tournament organizers too, being the official broadcasting platform of the second parts of World Team Chess Championship and World Youth Chess Championship, thus registering over 1 million unique users for the first 45 days.
The live broadcast itself is also in early beta. Many improvements and features are going to be launched in the next month. Practically every tournament innovations will be rolled out.
