     News Video in a Changing Media Ecosystem

Agenda Highlights


Post Pandemic News Workflows 

How has widespread remote production in news programming changed the way TV’s engineering, news and digital content community think about designing the newsrooms, studios and control rooms of the future? A brainstorming session with executives in technology, news and digital.


Virtualization, the Cloud & News Workflows 

A year of remote production led TV’s engineering community and vendors to lay plans to virtualize news workflows to simplify connections from remote locations, save on real estate and power costs and make operations easier to maintain. What operations will they virtualize first? Which ones are likely to move to the cloud — or a hybrid cloud setting — in the next 3-5 years?


Reinventing the Live Shot

Smaller news vehicles, cameras that acquire, stream and even edit video, connectivity via bonded cellular, low earth orbit satellite, 2 GHz, 5G: the changing economics of the video news industry has technologists imagining new ways to handle the live shot. We gather leaders in traditional and non-traditional ENG to imagine the future together.


Streaming News and the Evolution of News Storytelling 

How are streaming news services changing the way news is gathered, edited and presented? What strategies resonate most with elusive younger viewers? What technologies need to be adopted by linear TV operations?


Disrupt the News: Reinventing TV News for a Connected World

TV broadcasters have tried for years to attract younger audiences without offending existing linear TV audiences. The rise of streaming and mobile offer clear opportunities to reinvent the wheel. We gather marketers, news iconoclasts and a communications student or two to re-imagine video news.


Social Media Excellence Awards 

The third annual Social Media Excellence Awards will gather leaders in engagement to accept their awards and talk about their work.
