The 2016 Summer Games in Rio set all kinds of live digital consumption records for NBC Olympics and proved to be a watershed moment in the nation-wide adoption of live sports streaming. At the inaugural SVG Digital Summit (Dec. 12, Hilton Midtown, NYC), Eric Black, NBC Sports Digital’s Chief Technology Officer will pull back the curtain and offer an inside look at the network’s record-breaking streaming efforts in an exclusive keynote presentation.
Black will shares how his team pulled off the massive feat, providing more than 6,700 hours of live event programming over the 24-day event, while taking questions from the audience.
The presentation is a cornerstone to the SVG Digital Summit that will also include a keynote conversation with Bleacher Report President Rory Brown. The event will feature a morning session focused on live streaming and an afternoon session targeting emerging live social-video trends.
Leaders in sports digital and media will converge for this exciting new event to work through the challenges and share best practices for engaging viewers in the new digital world. What does that mean for the sports-media and entertainment business?
Social media and live social video, over-the- top (OTT) distribution strategies, augmented reality and virtual reality, data analysis and integration, and much more are on the docket at the SVG Digital Summit. Register today!
