SVG SportsTech On Demand: Masstech's Savva Mueller and George Kilpatrick on How to Enable Remote Working
In an effort to keep the broadcast-technology community informed this spring, throughout April, SVG is hosting a series of SportsTech On Demand video interviews with executives from the industry’s top technology vendors discussing their latest product releases and company news. Our Jason Dachman sat down with Masstech CEO George Kilpatrick and VP of Product Savva Mueller about the company’s efforts.
Masstech’s current focus is on helping its existing customers with the challenges of remote working. For sports organizations much of this revolves around accessing and sharing archived material that is held in on-prem libraries. Masstech has developed new initiatives, including free training, waiving fees for cloud connectors, and new functionality for downloading archived content (cloud & on-prem) to local workstations. The company is also continuing to add new modules to its Kumulate platform, and is announcing a new automated content acquisition portal called Gateway. It allows suppliers to upload content, which is then auto-checked for format and metadata compliance before entering production workflows.
