LiveTV:LA: Producing the Esports Revolution With ESL’s Rob Mikulicka

The director of operations at the esports giant discusses the high ceiling for live broadcasts of gaming

Esports continues to gain the attention of traditional broadcasters, leagues, and even sports teams, but how will this phenomenon be broadcast to its millions of viewers around the world? What’s unique about an esports broadcast from traditional sports? What tools are making the storytelling of esports more consumable to the average viewer?

Rob Mikulicka is director of operations at ESL, an esports power responsible for popular brands Counterstrike, League of Legends, and more. He addresses these questions and others during a Q&A from the stage of the LiveTV:LA conference in Universal City, CA.

The Sports Imaging Forum and LiveTV:LA were made possible by Title Sponsors Sony and LiveU; Diamond Sponsors Aspera, Canon, and TVU Networks; Gold Sponsors AJA, Grass Valley, Intelsat, JVCKENWOOD, and Riedel; and Event Sponsors SOS Global Express, Telescope, and VER.
