2017 Sports Graphics Forum
Live Graphics, Virtual, Data Visualization

A record crowd of more than 175 sports-graphics production and technology professionals turned out for SVG’s third-annual Sports Graphics Forum at the Microsoft Technology Center in New York City on Wednesday. Headlined by ESPN’s keynote presentation going behind the scenes of Monday Night Football’s new open for the 2016 season, the Sports Graphics Forum also included a full day of sessions and networking.

This year’s Forum was once again chaired by Big Studios owner/Director Jocelyne Meinert and spearheaded by the SVG Sports Graphics Advisory Committee. For the first time, the SVG Sports Graphics Forum — which was made possible by Title Sponsor ChyronHego and Event Sponsors Avid, Brainstorm, Ross Video, and Vizrt — featured a pair of sessions focused on Creation and Technology, respectively.
