SVG FAQs

What is the SVG?

The Sports Video Group was formed to help sports industry decision makers at all levels to understand how to better apply video, Internet and audio technologies to their profession.

Why the SVG?

The marriage of video, audio and Internet technologies and the sports industry is unlike any other in terms of its innovation and complexity. Broadcasters, stadiums, and teams all use a wide range of technology to suit a wide range of needs: from training to the in-stadium experience and to making fans everywhere feel connected to their favorite team. Technologies, however, are changing at a faster pace than ever. The goal of the SVG is to help our members and sponsors keep on top of the latest technology trends to ensure they make proper business decisions that grow the value of their organization and sports property.

Aren’t other organizations doing that?

No. Other technology-related associations and publications treat the sports market as a subset of more traditional market segments. By focusing only on sports technology our members will have a better understanding of the entire sports technology ecosystem and see tomorrow’s trends today.

Why should someone become a member?

For the industry professional interested in learning about the latest sports production and distribution technology trends an SVG membership provides ample opportunities to learn, network and advance a career. SVG members receive a number of great benefits including:

  • Free admission to all SVG events and 50% discount on League Summit registrations.
  • Access to members-only area featuring exclusive content
  • Print publications including the SVG Technology Journal and Mobile Production Truck Yearbook
  • Online job postings

Why should an organization become a sponsor?

As an educational organization one of the charters of the SVG is to work together to set industry best practices, training certification, and enable quality discussions between organizations that previously found it difficult or impossible to share ideas. As a sponsor you’ll have the opportunity to network with the industry’s leading decision makers and to help influence trends that will expand the use of sports video technologies.

I already receive industry email newsletters. How is the SVG’s email newsletter different?

Unlike most industry newsletters the Sports Video Insider includes fresh, exclusive content from leading journalists. In-depth Q&As with the industry’s top thinkers, analysis of breaking industry news, and a wrap-up of headlines from across the industry are received by the most influential sports technology professionals twice a week.
