2017 TranSPORT

SVG’s TranSPORT event at the Microsoft Technology Center in New York on Oct. 17, drew a record-crowd of more than 250 sports-video professionals. The event, which expanded to a full day for the first time, addressed a range of topics related to live sports transmission and how to balance cost and reliability. In addition to unveiling data from SVG’s fourth-annual TranSPORT Survey (detailing fiber vs. satellite vs. IP contribution strategies), the event touched on topics, including the impact of at-home productions on transmission; the growth of IP Networks; the future of 4K and HDR delivery; the impending implementation of ATSC 3.0, and low-cost transmission tools.
