The session will explore how esports can capitalise on this growth as it moves into the future, examining the business models of esports teams and leagues, how broadcasters, streaming services and other rightsholders can develop esports audiences further along with new sources of revenue. It will also look at how esports leagues can leverage remote production and cloud-based production models to increase their flexibility and scale output, while still maintaining professional production standards. The presentation will show Esports was already a live broadcast powerhouse in waiting, but because of COVID-19 and lockdown the wait has suddenly become a lot shorter.
