World Cup 2018

The SVG Podcast: World Cup Special With Telemundo Deportes’ Eli Velazquez (Plus Our Onsite Diary From Moscow)

At its first FIFA World Cup, the U.S. Spanish-language broadcaster has shown its mettle

As the 2018 FIFA World Cup roars into the quarterfinal round today, SVG is onsite, bringing you the scoop on all the video-production innovation happening in Moscow.

In this special edition of The SVG Podcast, Co-Executive Director Ken Kerschbaumer and Director of Digital Brandon Costa give you their take on the big headlines from this FIFA World Cup, including a look at Fox Sports’ operations, the setup of studios for various multimedia-rights licensees at iconic Red Square (including a spectacular augmented-reality studio from the UK’s ITV), the positive experiences that broadcasters have had in Russia, and much more.

We’re also joined on the show by Eli Velazquez, EVP, programming, production, and content, Telemundo Deportes, which is broadcasting its first FIFA World Cup as the Spanish-language rightsholder in the U.S. He offers a peek inside the company’s IBC footprint, discusses the challenges he faced in preparing for this event, and even offers advice to aspiring sports-video–production professionals who aspire to work a mega-event like this.

The SVG Podcast is for the sports-video–production professional looking to keep up with the latest in sports-video–production operations and technology. The program features interviews with some of the biggest, most influential names in the sports-video business talking trends and topics that are making an impact on the industry.
