SVG Europe’s FutureSport 2015 to examine broadcast and interactivity innovations at the Rugby World Cup

The 2015 Rugby World Cup might be over, having concluded with victory for New Zealand, but its technological impact is likely to be evident for a long time to come thanks to a cluster of broadcast production innovations and a wave of initiatives designed to encourage viewer interaction.

From ticket designs that allow supporters to access 3D interactive experiences through their smartphones, to a bespoke app developed by Omnigon that delivers a wealth of additional content and background material, the Rugby World Cup 2015 was undoubtedly the most technologically advanced tournament in the sport’s history. With more action than ever before enjoyed online and across devices as well as through traditional linear TV, this session delivers insight from some of the vendors, service providers and integrators who made it all happen.

Joining moderator and Volans Consulting director Ian Volans are: Adam Berger, CTV Outside Broadcasts, general manager; John Bozza, SIS LIVE, commercial director; Richard Crouch, Opta Sports, head of rugby; and Neil Papworth, ITV Sport, venue technical operations manager.
