“NACDA has worked closely with SVG at our convention over
the past two years to develop awareness among our members about the latest
technology tools,” Vecchione explains. “We are pleased to see that this hard
work has resulted in the launch of this focused Video Summit, which will
further this important mission and help our members educate their staffs about
expanding the value of their content on television, the Internet and mobile

Sports, produced by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences
