2021 Systems Integrator Summit

Full Program

Day 1: April 21 Program

(All times are in Eastern Time Zone)

1:00 – 1:45 p.m.: Venue-Control Rooms: The Changing Landscape of Stadiums & Arenas
As video-control rooms at sports venues expand in both size and scope, the role of the systems integrator must grow and evolve. In addition, the pandemic has created a host of new considerations for systems integrators in terms of layout and design based on new safety protocols. Leading systems integrators will discuss their latest projects, the rise of IP, technological trends they’re seeing in sports venues, and much more.

1:45 – 2:00 p.m.: Case Study

2:00 – 2:45 p.m.: Broadcast Studios & Fixed Facilities: Design, Automation, and Broadcast Workflows
The more broadcasters embrace IP-based systems, systems integrators are leading the charge into the great IP frontier. With more studio content being created than ever, these next-gen broadcast facilities must be robust, flexible, and often automated to accommodate 24/7 production operations. Hear from integrators on what they see in broadcast studios today and what they expect in the coming years.

2:45 – 3:00 p.m.: Case Study

3:00 – 3:45 p.m.: Vendor Perspectives: Tips and Tools for Today’s Systems Integrators
In creating a production facility, systems integrators must orchestrate and build relationships with a wide variety of vendors. Leading broadcast-equipment manufacturers take the virtual stage to discuss how they’ve seen systems integration evolve, what it takes to build a quality relationship with an integrator, and how latest products factor into the current landscape.


Day 2: April 22 Program

(All times are in Eastern Time Zone)

1:00 – 1:45 p.m.: Remote-Production Facilities: Trucks, Flypacks, and Centralized Production Systems
As the pandemic has changed live sports production, facilities have been forced to evolve. Today, many broadcasters are using a mix of mobile units and flypacks onsite with centralized facilities back home. How will this impact the design and integration of production trucks and other onsite systems? Mobile-production-facilities integrators discuss how the production compound and the trucks within it are being transformed to meet today’s needs.

1:45 – 2:00 p.m.: Case Study

2:00 – 2:45 p.m.: Digital Media Management & Workflows: Orchestration, Postproduction, and Enterprise Media
Whether you are a broadcaster, a team, a league, or a production house, the need for media-asset management and orchestration has never been more integral to success. However, digital media workflows are ultra-complex and require a variety of solutions from several vendors to account for ingest, postproduction/editing, archive/storage, security, MAM, and delivery. Media-workflow-solutions integrators address best practices in today’s media landscape and how their role has become more important than ever.

2:45 – 3:00 p.m.: Case Study

3:00 – 3:45 p.m.: Cloud Services & Infrastructure: The Shift From On-Prem to the Cloud
Many sports-production operations are shifting from a purely on-premises infrastructure to a hybrid cloud model that offers increased flexibility and scalability. As a result, systems integrators are faced with myriad new considerations when building the production and broadcast facilities of the future. Integrators, cloud-platform providers, and other experts discuss how the cloud is impacting the design of production facilities.
