The next instalment in SVG Europe’s series of increasingly high-profile broadcast technology summit events will be FutureSport, scheduled to 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 refreshingly 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.

Details of speakers to be announced in the next few weeks. In the meantime, here is the intended programme at-a-glance:
