The SVG Podcast: The Impact of Coronavirus — An SVG Edit Team Roundtable + Unique At-Home Productions By Harvard Athletics and LiveU
A look at how the industry is facing a world of new challenges without live sports
In a special episode of The SVG Podcast, the SVG editorial team sits down to discuss the impact the coronavirus pandemic is having on the sports-video–production industry.
SVG Executive Director, Editorial, Ken Kerschbaumer, Chief Editor Jason Dachman, Associate Editor Kristian Hernandez, and Director of Digital Brandon Costa examine the substantial business implications and look at how U.S. sports networks, leagues, and teams are taking the challenge head-on.
In addition, we bring you the audio archive of a live webinar hosted on March 19 titled “Your Streaming Footprint in Uncertain Times and Circumstances.” We’re joined by Imry Halevi, assistant director of athletics, multimedia and production, Harvard University, and Janel Fleming, director, sales/manager, sports, Sales Group, LiveU, to discuss how Harvard is responding to the current crisis and analyze two unique live productions that Harvard Athletics broadcast: rowing and skiing.
