2018 SVG Sports OTT Forum

Over-the-top distribution and direct-to-consumer live streaming packages are poised to dramatically change the world of live sports video. While the entire media ecosystem is approaching this new era of consumer behavior, the sports media industry faces its own unique set of challenges and opportunities. In response to the SVG community’s need to collaborate on these new technologies and business opportunities, SVG will debut its first-annual SVG Sports OTT Forum to be held this July in New York City. Learn from the entire spectrum of sports streaming experts, from traditional broadcasters taking linear into the digital world to emerging media companies building digital-first streaming experiences from the ground up. The hot topics to be addressed will include app development and user experience, ad insertion and monetization strategies, delivery, security, and latency. Join us for the first-annual SVG Sports OTT Forum as we discuss how technology is taking content and the sports media business into the next generation.
