Two Weeks Until SVG’s Sports Asset Management & Storage Forum
SVG’s Sports Asset Management and Storage Forum on July 31 at the McGraw-Hill Building in New York City is coming up fast. With media-asset-management leaders from major broadcasters and leagues taking the stage to offer up first-hand perspectives and behind-the-curtain looks at their respective workflows, this event is a can’t-miss for anyone looking to build-out an efficient MAM and storage infrastructure of their own.
The opening panel will, entitled “Getting Started: Best Practices in Launching Your MAM Workflow” (10:30-11:15 a.m.) will take a step-by-step approach to address the basics in how to create a media-asset management workflow of your own. Leaders from the MAM trenches will address queries like:
- What was your timeline and how did you meet it?
- How much content did you have and how did that affect the process?
- Did you digitize in-house or use a third-party?
- What did you do with the original tapes and content?
- Did you digitize your library in full or only partially?
- Did you have to increase your staff and, if so, by how much?
- How much additional outside support was needed to accomplish all
- Did you opt for a best-of-breed strategy or choose a single primary vendor?
- How did you convince your counterparts on the production side to take embrace the new workflow?
- Once the system was launched how did you manage expectations and how has the workflow continued to evolve?

- David Dukes, PGA Entertainment, Senior Director, Technical Operations
- Matthew Green, NBC Sports and Olympics, Senior Digital Media Engineer
- Keith Horstman, NBA Entertainment, VP Digital Media Management Systems
