2:00 p.m.: Registration (SNEAKY BIG Lobby)

2:00 – 2:05 p.m.: Welcome message

2:05  – 2:50 p.m.: State of At-Home Production: The Evolving REMI Landscape
The explosion of “at-home” productions in recent years has dramatically changed the face of the live-sports industry. While many networks and content creators are using their own facilities as the base for these at-home shows, third-party production facilities like Sneaky Big Studios are also playing a larger role in this evolving ecosystem. A group of at-home-production pros take the stage for this session addressing REMI best practices – whether you are using your own broadcast center or a third-party facility.
