Sport Production Summit: previewing workflows for Sochi, Brazil

Two sessions taking place as part of next month’s SVG Europe-organised Sport Production Summit in Amsterdam will examine the broadcast preparations for two forthcoming, globally significant sporting events: the Sochi Games and the 2014 World Cup.

The Sochi Games are only a few short months away and broadcasters are already figuring out how to more cost-effectively cover the event with minimal on-site staff. How will the production workflows differ from last year’s London Games? And what new technologies will make a difference?

Panellists mulling these issues in a dedicated panel session will include Luc Doneux (EVP sports division, EVS) and Richard Morgan (chief engineer, BBC Sport).

Later the same day, panellists including HBS director, production services Dan Miodownik will look ahead to the World Cup in Brazil, which promises to be at the centre of next summer’s sporting universe as well as being a showcase for next generation broadcast production workflows and technologies. Attendees to this session will have the chance to learn about some of the new technologies that will be used at the International Broadcast Center and in the venues, and how operations have changed since 2010.
