The SVG Podcast: The State of Live Sports Transmission – An Industry Roundtable

Discussing the present and future of live sports video transmission with executives from ESPN, Fox Sports, Sinclair Broadcast Group, WarnerMedia, and ViacomCBS

There’s a tremendous amount of change and innovation currently occurring within the circulatory system of live sports media: transmission.

On this episode of The SVG Podcast, its a “State of the Industry” roundtable discussion on the most pressing issues facing the transmission and contribution segment of the industry today.

We’re joined by: Brad Cheney, VP, Field Operations and Engineering at FOX Sports; Ken Fuller, VP, Distribution and Technology at ViacomCBS; Julie Morrison, Manager, Content Transmission at WarnerMedia Production Technology; Paul Spinelli, Director, Distribution & Network Systems at Sinclair Broadcast Group; and Adam Whitlock, Director, Remote Traffic Operations at ESPN.

The pandemic has dramatically altered the landscape for backhauling and delivering live sports events over the past year and a half. These execs will address how their strategies and operations have evolved as a result and how they see the industry changing in the coming years.

This roundtable is moderated by SVG’s Chief Editor, Jason Dachman and is a segment of larger conversation that was hosted as part of our annual SVG TranSPORT event.
