SCMS 2018: Vox Media’s Sarah Semlear on Managing Media Assets in a Digital World

The digital news powerhouse handles a mass of content that needs to be both safe and nimble

For legacy media companies and sports leagues, properly managing and archiving a video-asset library is increasingly a challenge for operations professionals. For new, digital-native outfits, the task can be just as daunting and, in some ways, unique.

At SVG’s Sports Asset Management & Storage Forum last week, SVG’s Brandon Costa talked with Sarah Semlear, director, post production and video operations, Vox Media, to examine the obstacles and opportunities that she faces in her role and what the benefits are to learning from industry colleagues at networking events, even when the content may be different for a non-sports entity.
