Gold Sponsor Lightware Visual Engineering Joins EsportsNext 2022

Budapest, Hungary, 17 August 2022 –  Lightware Visual Engineering is delighted to be supporting Esports Trade Associations’ (ESTA) inaugural EsportsNext 2022 event, as a Gold Sponsor.

EsportsNext 2022 takes place in Chicago, USA on the 22 – 23 August 2022.

The Esports Trade Association is a world-class network and driving force behind the global growth of esports, bringing together global technology manufacturers, IT specialists and e-athletes to help them develop, organize and promote esports projects.

The company’s presence will include demonstrating its state-of-the-art AV signal management solutions to the global esports community, and also an excellent opportunity for Lightware to explore and learn more about the ongoing needs of this fast-paced industry.

Lightware joins an illustrious list of advocates supporting EsportsNext 2022, including AVI-SPL, Morgan Stanley, Ultimate Gaming Championship (UGC) and many more.

Megan Van Petten, ESTA Founder and Managing Director, said: “ESTA is thrilled to have Lightware as part of our community both as a Corporate Member and a Gold sponsor of EsportsNext 2022 as the company’s solutions fulfill a definite need for our esports industry.”

Being one of the world’s fastest-growing industries, gaming tournaments rival their ‘traditional’ counterparts both in terms of scale and popularity, but from an AV technology standpoint they come with a set of unique challenges.

Jason Tirado, President, Lightware Inc, said: “Esports operations require uncompromising, high-resolution video signal transmissions with ultra-low latency, seamless operation and high levels of reliability, and these are exactly the features and areas where Lightware excels.”

Tirado adds: “Lightware’s technology offers pixel-perfect, real-time delivery of video signals with resolutions up to 4K60 4:4:4, combined with intuitive configuration tools and redundancy features. These capabilities make their AV-over-IP systems, matrix switchers and extenders a perfect fit for esports applications.”
