The SVG Podcast: 1080p HDR Production Workflows — Are We There Yet?

Experts from NBC, Fox, CBS, and Sony assess the tech and judge whether a full 1080p HDR workflow is practical

Entering 2019, what is the next generation of video quality for sports television? Lately, a format has taken favor with many in the sports-video–production community: 1080p with high dynamic range (HDR).

On today’s episode of The SVG Podcast, we analyze whether 1080p HDR is really the new sweet spot. A panel of experts from across sports TV examines the current state of an all-1080p workflow — with or without HDR — and how high dynamic range can most easily be layered into a live production.

Joining us on the show are Craig Bernstein, senior director, remote technical operations and engineering, NBC Sports; Brad Cheney, VP, field operations and engineering, Fox Sports; Mike Francis, VP, remote engineering and planning, CBS Sports; and Rob Willox, director of marketing, media solutions, Sony.

This conversation comes from the stage at the 2018 SVG Summit, which was held last month in New York. Here to take you through the conversation is Glenn Adamo, president, Ivanhoe Media & Entertainment.

The SVG Podcast is for the sports-video–production professional looking to keep up with the latest in sports-video–production operations and technology.
