IABM and SVG Europe to tackle PTP during BaM Live! on 18 March

IABM’s BaM Live! 2021 virtual event features a new platform, two days of events on 17-18 March, and, on 18 March, five hours of sports production content, including a closing live ‘Ask the Experts’ session on Precision Time Protocol (PTP) that will be co-produced with SVG Europe.

Designed to be as close to a real person-to-person event as possible, BaM Live! enables users to interact and build business relationships with fellow participants and learn about the latest key trends and hot topics in the industry from a global range of diverse, expert speakers.

The sessions on 18 March begin at 13:00 GMT and include:

Main stage session – Sports Production
Sports took a major hit at the beginning of the pandemic, but media companies responded quickly – monetising archives, moving to remote production models when events began to return and pushing data, graphics and audio to the next level to increase audience engagement. This is the sector that has seen perhaps the most innovation over the last year and in this session, experts will examine how sports production continues to be disrupted and the technologies and techniques that are powering it today.

Sports Content Chains: The Upstream View
In this fireside chat, IABM will talk to a sports content owner about technology virtualisation, streamlining B2B content pipelines and the importance of data in the sports industry.

Sports Content Chains: The Downstream View
In this fireside chat, IABM will talk to a sports broadcaster about the move to remote production workflows, the impact of direct-to-consumer on sports technology sourcing and the implications of these trends for media technology providers.

Sports Content Chains: The Arena – A Case study with Levira and The FIA World Rally Championship (WRC)
In the final part of this session, we will delve into a recent case study focused on safely enabling the production of the 2020 FIA World Rally Championship (WRC). Speakers include Martti Kinkar, head of innovation and development, Levira, and Tarmo Hõbe, entrepreneur, one of the main organisers and commercial director, Rally Estonia.

Main stage session – Ask the Experts about PTP with Sports Video Group
Lately, there has been a lot of questions, and concerns about synchronising feeds, particularly for sporting events, whether remote or in a fixed venues. Subject matter experts and end-users who understand signal flows within the sports environment come together to expose the facts about using Precision Time Protocol (PTP) during live events.
