SVG Sports Asset Management & Storage Forum Draws Record Crowd, New Insights
SVG’s ninth-annual Sports Asset Management & Storage (SAMS) Forum at the New York Hilton in Midtown Manhattan drew more than 300 industry leaders on Wednesday – the most ever for a SAMS event. Along with the 2nd Screen Summit: Sports on Tuesday, the Forum was part of a two-day SVG double header in New York City that drew more than 500 sports-video professionals to learn, network, and help educate the industry as a whole.
The packed crowd at the SAMS Forum were privy to a full day of panels and presentations that addressed a broad range of topics including: a pair of case studies chronicling the MAM efforts of the Baltimore Ravens and Los Angeles Kings, the State of Sports Asset Management & Storage, Automating Metadata Assignment, Bulk-Ingest Workflows, Embracing At-Home Remote Production Workflows for MAM, the Future of Codecs Roadmap for 4K and Beyond, and Balancing Onsite With the Cloud for Storage and Archive.
SVG Editor Jason Dachman took a moment with NHL SVP of Technology Grant Nodine – who chaired the SAMS Committee this year and spearheaded the day’s program – to discuss challenges he sees the industry facing today and how the Forum can aid in confronting those issues:
