Esports and ProAV

1:05 p.m.

With K-12 schools laying the foundation for an esports culture boom, it’s no surprise that this market segment continues to grow tremendously in higher ed institutions. According to a Futuresource report, the global installed base of PCs primarily used for esports at universities is set to rise by a 14.6% CAGR 2022-2027 — and imagine all of the ProAV equipment needed to go along with those PCs! On this panel, Megan A. Dutta and a panel of experts — including Neutrik’s Mark Boyadjian — will discuss the latest esports trends and how you can capitalize on this growing market for your business.

We talk a lot in ProAV about how the relationship triangle between the manufacturer, integrator and end user is incredibly important, but until recently, the end user experience tended to be an afterthought. From headphones and microphones all the way to sound bars, Steph Beckett and a panel of experts — including Audio-Technica’s Dan Pelletier — will discuss the importance of designing AV solutions that prioritize the user to create a more inclusive and user-friendly UCC experience.
