There are venues cropping up around the country in which thousands of people gather to watch other people play videogames. It’s called esports, and it’s growing in popularity by the year. The need for more efficient eSports technology is also growing.
When I first explained this concept to my coworkers Tom and Craig last year, they scratched their heads in amazement. They couldn’t understand why someone would want to watch other people play videogames in the first place, nevermind making some big event out of it.
Mind you, they’ve both got about 20 years on me – and what they didn’t realize at the time is that esports isn’t just the new entertainment phenomenon for millennials – it crosses generations and demograhpics, and, importantly, it presents a HUGE opportunity for AV integrators.
On today’s episode of AV+, we’ll hear from Brandon Breznick of Premier Mounts, who thinks the Esports opportunity extends further down the market to less obvious customers.
On Episode 59 of AV+…
- Brandon Breznick of Premier Mounts explains what an eSports venue is, what eSports technology projects look like, and much more

The Commercial Integrator Podcast
The phrase ‘pro AV’ doesn’t do justice to all of the integration crowd, so we at Commercial Integrator wanted to create a podcast that speaks to all of those areas (and more!) under the umbrella of commercial tech integration.
The host, web editor Adam Forziati, has a background in radio and is looking forward to providing listeners with an entertaining, informative audio forum for all topics affecting the industry.
Podcast Release Schedule
We plan to release a shorter, single-topic episode once every week or two on Fridays (just like this episode). But at the end of each month, we’ll also drop a longer, in-depth episode of the AV podcast with features like Editor’s Desk, CI Monthly News Spotlight, CI’s Project of the Month, and more.
We hope you’ll share your thoughts on Twitter using the hashtag #AVPlusPod !
