Adding to the already bulging line up of speakers for the Sports Production Leaders Briefings panels, part of the Sport Production & Technology Summit 2020, are executives from BBC Sport, DAZN, Infront Productions, CTV Outside Broadcasts and NEP.

The live hour-long Zoom webinars will take place at 4pm (UK time) across the 15, 16 and 17 September, bringing together key technology decision-makers from companies represented on the SVG Europe Advisory Board.

The discussion will focus on new products and services that have been announced during the IBC period, these companies’ technical challenges, and what they need from the industry to keep innovating into 2021.

On Tuesday 15 September on a panel of broadcasters and over the top (OTT) providers, BBC Sport’s Narinder Ball, outside broadcast engineering manager, and DAZN’s Natalie Cornforth, head of global virtual production operations, will be joining Sky Deutschland’s vice president of sports production and SVG Europe chair, Alessandro Reitano, Henk Van Meerkerk, head of production at Fox Sports Netherlands, and Kevin McCue, director of technical operations at Sky Sports.

On the panel of producers and host broadcasters taking place on Wednesday 16 September, HBS’s head of Infront Productions France, Julien Bertin, will join PGA European Tour and Ryder Cup Europe chief technology officer Michael Cole, IMG’s Tom Giles, who is head of engineering for studios and live galleries, Ronan Donagher, head of technology, broadcast and innovation at World Rugby, Emili Planas, chief technology officer at Mediapro, and David Tippett, head of broadcast at Sunset+Vine.

Meanwhile, on Thursday 17 September, the panel of OB providers will see NEP’s new chief operating officer for broadcast services and media solutions, Andrew Jordan, plus CTV Outside Broadcasts’ head of projects, Richard Morton, sitting alongside TV Skyline founder and chief executive officer, Wolfgang Reeh.

Speakers will be revealing ‘what I saw’ over the timeframe that would previously have been the IBC show in Amsterdam, as well as sharing intelligence about their technical challenges and future priorities.

The panels will be followed by a live audience Q&A.
