Imagine Communications has recommitted to being a Gold sponsor of SVG Europe. The company cited SVG Europe’s response to the challenges created by COVID-19 as a key reason behind its decision.

“During the last 12 months, sport has been more important than ever before in keeping audiences entertained and stimulated,” said Mathias Eckert, SVP & GM EMEA and APAC at Imagine Communications. “But sports broadcasters have been forced to be particularly inventive and innovative, to deliver the highest quality coverage while protecting their crews.

“That has brought into sharp focus some of the next-gen solutions that we were already talking about ― making them vital for today, not just options for the future; technologies like IP connectivity on location and back to base, 5G and remote production. Producers and broadcasters now rely on these for sports coverage, every day.

“In turn, that makes a professional body like SVG, where ideas can be shared among peers, even more important. SVG, in turn, has reinvented itself, creating a whole programme of online, virtual conferences and knowledge-sharing events, helping everyone in the industry benefit from experiences and understanding of technical advances.”

“Those discussions and debates are vital to all of us in the industry – vendors like Imagine, as well as producers and broadcasters,” Eckert concluded. “That is why we remain committed to the work of SVG in Europe, and why we continue to provide sponsorship for the organisation and support its activities.”
