AV meets IP meets IT with Panasonic at ISE 2020

Those with some grey hair like me might think eSports refers to a person from Yorkshire’s exercise regime, but I asked my 10-year-old and he says eSports is the fastest growing sector in the AV industry. At ISE this year Panasonic combines its latest broadcast and live entertainment products to create an eSports arena that attendees can actually participate in.  Watching other people play computer games is my idea of purgatory, but it appears I’m in a minority, and millions of 10 to 20-year olds with disposable income would rather watch eSports than Sky Sports.

New launches at ISE 2020

Here's an overview of our vendors exhibiting at ISE 2020. Please call us on +44 (0)1457 851000 if you would like to book a stand tour with one of our manufacturers. BLACKMAGIC DESIGN HALL 3, STAND C140 The Video Assist 12G 5” and 7” monitor recorders are now shipping. The original HD versions were incredibly popular with AV technicians who wanted to verify SDI and HDMI feeds and check waveform levels. For production teams, their 4K HDR capture makes them a superb on-camera SD card recorder. The ATEM Mini is a very small, cost-effective 4 channel HDMI video switcher with streaming output. Great as a portable mixer or a signal switcher, it’s being adopted by everyone from conference producers to AV technicians looking for simple HDMI switching.
