The Safe Return of Regional Sports Using Remote Production
Live production for sports and entertainment have been forced to change and adapt since COVID-19. Limiting on-site personnel and crew without changing the quality or dynamic, for the broadcast, and curtailing as much of the travel as possible, is now the new norm.
Remote production provider Mobile TV Group is one of the companies helping to develop and lead the path to new workflows that will help provide a safe return of sporting events as well as maintaining the quality and integrity of the end product expected by the viewer.
Join MTVG as they showcase video inside their mobile units and sports venues highlighting these new workflows and discuss the benefits for clients, crew, leagues, and viewers. Following the video and discussion, stick around for live Q&A.
Moderator: Mark Chiolis, Director of Business Development, MTVG

Pivoting Broadcast News Quickly in a New World
When COVID-19 hit the U.S. the first place it landed was in New York City. Imagine you’re in charge of preparing to move multiple buildings full of your team members to a new facility, planning each move very strategically to assure that all of your 24/7/365 networks and programming never miss a beat, and the viewers haven’t a clue. Now also imagine that in the middle of all this planning you quickly have to pivot and take a large majority of those team members out of the office, much earlier than planned, and to move them to their individual homes, while keeping the train running.
ABC TV Network and ABC News Director of Engineering Mike Strein, and his team, were faced with that exact scenario and given very short timetables to make all of this happen to assure the safety and security of everyone involved. Join Mike for a brief overview of what his team did to take their news operations remote and come ready to share and discuss strategies that your team has employed to get the job done in this pandemic.
