Attendees to a new summit event taking place at ISE 2014 on Wednesday 5 February will have the chance to find out more about the latest trends and techniques involved in sports facility systems integration, as well as the next-generation tools that can make the difference between a good and great fan experience.
Starting at 12:30 in Room E102 of the Amsterdam RAI, Sport Facility Integration Summit is the newest addition to the annual conference programme of SVG Europe, a trade association representing the interests of professionals involved with the creation, production and distribution of sports content.
“We’re extremely excited to be launching this new event at ISE 2014,” says SVG Europe general manager Joe Hosken. “The Sport Facility Integration Summit will provide an opportunity to examine closely the issues that are affecting the design and delivery of sports venues worldwide. New media and broadcast expectations mean that this is a time of unprecedented change, and we look forward to reflecting that sense of excitement throughout the day.”
Leading manufacturers and consultants have already signed up to appear as panellists during the busy half-day programme. A session considering the evolution of control-room AV technologies, for example, will draw on the input of, among others, ChyronHego VP of sales EMEA Paul Glasgow, EVS’ VP of sports division business development Xavier de Vynck, and Grass Valley’s senior VP of marketing Mike Cronk.
Elsewhere in the programme, Broadcast Networks director, media & broadcast solutions, Malcom Robinson, will discuss the challenges of breaking into sports venue integration, while Haivision vice-president global channels Charles Dobson and Miranda CTO core products Charles ‘Chuck’ Meyer will examine the rise of next generation video and audio venue transport.
Blackmagic Design, Clear-Com, Elemental Technologies, LiveU, NewTek and RH Consulting will be among other contributors to Sport Facility Integration Summit, which will also include dedicated sessions on venue audio and the changing nature of the fan experience, as well as a case study on the development of BT Sport’s remarkable new London facilities.
