The SVG Podcast: Inside NBA Arenas with Miami Heat’s Kurt Doster and Golden State Warriors’ Jen Millet and Jackie Ventura

How are NBA teams building atmosphere in their arena while engaging fans at home?

At the latest episode of The SVG Podcast, we revisit the team side of the sports video production industry to discuss the continuously evolving challenge of using video to build an in-venue experience, while simultaneously engaging with fans at home who – largely – can’t be in attendance at live games due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Joining us is Kurt Doster, Director of Arena Video Production for the Miami Heat, who will share how his team is partnering with their local RSN to recreate the control room at AmericanAirlines Arena. Also, we speak with Golden State Warriors’ SVP of Marketing Jen Millet and Director of Facility Health and Hygiene Jackie Ventura to get the scoop on how the new Chase Center is combating the challenges of the day, including a look at their “Dub Hub” project, which is brining fans at home into the building to experience Warriors games this season.

Both interviews are conducted by SVG’s Associate Editor Kristian Hernandez.
