Listen: San Jose Sharks, Bob Swan, Intel discussed on Bloomberg Business of Sports with Scott Soshnick and Michael Barr
"Point twenty one. Doc. References. And there were some cool shoes in that too. What kind of money we're talking about here? What I mean in the industry in the sports industry global sports industry. What kind of money we're talking about four Intel for the leagues for the players. What are we talking about? Well. In terms of peeling it out we have to talk a little bit sports, but our currency. Oh, Bob swan is basically said that we're operating in a business with a Tamatoa Vilbert market of about three hundred billion dollars right yet. All the things we're doing serve business, etc. But within sports it's a phenomenal opportunity. I mean, measured in the billions, I mean, you look at the estimates around your sports gambling right in the the amount that they think they can move from the dark to the light. And that runs into the billions of dollars there. I'm so so the, you know, the opportunities are significant immersive video you tell me what's the opportunity if now all of a sudden, you have the ability to not just watch this on your wonderful, sixty five inch TV screen, but to really go inside. And to see what it looks like from a player's perspective. I pay a couple of dollars for that that ability forward because as I told you I got my son and Oculus, but there isn't that much sports content on there. And even if I watched the ESPN programming it's really just like watching. The TV and not the real experience of some of the apps, San Jose Sharks for the only team that had a VR app where you could go locker room or the team come out for warm up. I love it. But when will I have real content that updates that I can really count on it and wanted to every day. Sure. Know, it's it's evolving, and that's one of the things. I mean talked about earlier the the fact that, you know, maybe technology's not being deployed is effectively in all the areas that it should be. And I would agree that that's the opportunity. That's the great thing. Right. So there is we will see a world where you have real time sports. I mean, they're issue of retired sports statistics for gambling, etc. And you know, but that pretentious says challenges, right? You you have to dress wanna keep things latency. Right. You can't have somebody getting the information two seconds earlier than their peer or minute earlier. So so we think that there's a real opportunity around those areas to deploy tech technology in that capacity. Well, I just wonder though, if the technology if some athletes do not want that technology out because that's going to give away some secrets about how they play the game. Your name regularly. But but no, that's a great point, Michael. I mean, that's one of the bigger issues from my understanding many years removed from working at the league office. But my understanding is that's a big issue of conversation between the league and the players association's in terms of who owns this data who's has access to this data because you know, there may be some things that could help your cause when it comes to contract negotiations. And there may be some things that could hurt your cause. And just like, I might not want somebody know my blood pressure on a daily basis. So those are issues and challenges that, you know, again, create opportunities going forward, we will continue our conversation with Sean Brian and up next.."
