SVG PLAY: Regional Sports Network Leaders Address New At-Home Production Models in RSN Summit Panel Discussion

Execs from Bally Sports, NBC Sports, MSG Networks, NESN, and AT&T SportsNet weigh their at-home production options

SVG’s RSN Summit brought regional sports network leaders and content creators together in Chicago on June 29 and 30 to network and exchange ideas about the pertinent issues facing the regional sports sector as the business undergoes seismic change on multiple fronts. These leaders addressed how RSNs are being challenged to produce more events and content at lower costs while also navigating new pandemic-era realities and building beyond the linear-distribution model.

The pandemic dramatically transformed regional sports networks’ live-production operations over the past two-plus years. To limit crew travel for safety and cost-saving reasons, RSNs have increasingly relied on enhanced world feeds and new REMI production workflows that leverage their broadcast facilities at home. As the RSN world returns to something resembling normalcy, how are the established pre-pandemic production models mixing with the new at-home workflows like Cloud Control, GCV Anywhere, and Remote Access Productions (RAPs)? And what does that mean for the future? A panel at the 2022 SVG RSN Summit addressed these critical questions.
