1:00 – 1:30 p.m.: A Potentially New Normal: Systems Integrators Reimagine the Control Room
While a vaccine is still not readily available, in-venue employees must do what they can to stay safe and healthy. As sports make their gradual return, systems integrators weigh a handful of questions. What safety measures will be put in place? How will employees be dispersed in the era of social distancing? Will precautions like plexiglass dividers and protective masks be the new normal?

1:30 – 2:00 p.m.: A Hunger for Content: Teams Shift Strategies During the Sports Shutdown
When live sporting events went into a complete shutdown a few months ago, venue-production professionals suddenly found themselves shut out of their control rooms. With a constant appetite for any form of content, these professionals changed roles by assisting other departments in their organization. What are some examples of material that was created during the initial shutdown? What remote production workflows were used during this process?

HDR and 4K are the two buzzwords that have a stranglehold on in-venue videoboard production.
