More speakers announced for SVG Europe’s FutureSport 2013

EBU Head of Technology Dr. Hans Hoffmann, Silverwood Partners’ Josh Stinehour and EVS’s Laurent Petit are among the speakers confirmed to participate in the next instalment of SVG’s increasingly high profile broadcast technology summit events. Entitled FutureSport 2013, the one-day technology spectacular will take place on 3 December at one of London’s most celebrated sporting venues, The Kia Oval.

The technology involved might be complex, but the concept for the day is alluringly simple: namely, to help sports production executives at all levels understand and explore some of the core concepts that are shaping the long-term revenue opportunities pertaining to sports content creation and distribution.

Panel sessions will focus on topics including the future of OB design, big data delivery and 4K production technology. In addition, exhibits will provide a peak at some new production techniques, while the day will incorporate plenty of time for networking.

The event has already confirmed some star panellists drawn from across the industry, including: Dr. Hans Hoffmann, head of production technology, EBU; Josh Stinehour, managing director, Silverwood Partners; Carlo de Marchis, chief product officer and group director, Deltatre; Richard Craig-McFeely, global business development diretor for media services, Tata Communications; Laurent Petit, market solutions manager OB & live production, EVS; John Nemeth, VP sales EMEA, Elemental Technologies; and Mark Grinyer, head of business development sports, Sony.

More speakers will be announced in the coming weeks. To register an interest in attending, and for more details, please visit:
