The Esports phenomenon is bringing new challenges and opportunities in media tech

Esports, as it stands, is experiencing immense growth, and a heretofore undreamt-of level of legitimacy, and with that comes a trove of needs and opportunities that media technology businesses should be paying extremely close attention to.
