The SVG Podcast: Migrating an All-Virtual Plant With YES Network’s Jason Marshall

Lessons learned and key takeaways from the major tech overhaul of the nation's largest RSN

The sports-video industry is in a period of tremendous change. 4K/UHD, HDR, IP, OTT. There are lots of opportunities to be had and gambles to be taken.

That brings us to our subject today: the YES Network. You know the YES Network as one of the biggest regional sports networks in the country, if not the biggest. In 2018, the network elected to migrate its production plant to an all-virtual environment.

Today, on the show, we go through that entire experience with Jason Marshall, project manager, broadcast systems, YES Network. What were the challenges? What were the lessons learned? How has it gone since the project’s completion?

This interview comes from the stage of Content Management and Storage Forum, which was hosted in New York City on July 24 and is moderated by SVG Chief Editor Jason Dachman.
