Technology Tour of CNN to Kick Off One-Day Retreat

By TVNewsCheck on January 25, 2018

NewsTECHFutures Retreat will kick off with a Technology Tour of CNN led by Turner’s Bob Hesskamp, Head of Engineering; Michael Koetter, SVP Digital Media Systems and Matthew Holcombe, SVP Production Broadcast Engineering. After guiding NewsTECHFutures attendees through a tour of the technologies they find most interesting, the three leading Turner engineering executives will engage in a conversation and Q&A with attendees about what they are learning as they transition Turner’s Atlanta campus to IP and build an all-IP news facility for CNN in New York.

“The Technology Tour of CNN will be held off-the-record, so participants feel comfortable sharing information about the early stages of the IP transition’s move into live TV production,” said Kathy Haley, co-founder and publisher of TVNewsCheck. “We are extremely pleased to be able to offer this important event as part of the retreat.”
