 Adapting to a Culture of Continuous Crisis

 

Now in its 10th year, NewsTECHForum gathers technology, news, and digital executives, managers, and professionals from television networks, station groups, digital native, and other news organizations to discuss the unique challenges they face in their sector of the media and entertainment industry. It is co-located with the Sports Video Group Summit and live streamed to TVNewsCheck.com and its YouTube, Vimeo, and social media channels.

 

 2023 Agenda Highlights

 

Harvesting the Archive for New Content and Opportunities —Sold Newsbridge

Media companies are beginning to use technology to tag, index, and search for video to enhance storytelling, create new shows, and eventually find new revenue by licensing content. How are the newest advances in AI making these tasks significantly easier? Will AI offer a path to circumvent meta tagging altogether? And how can media companies authenticate their deep trove of archival content and determine rights ownership?

 

Chasing AI: Threatening or Enhancing News? —Sold AVID

Artificial intelligence is reshaping the way organizations produce news. On the positive side, operational functions like speech-to-text transcription, translation, quality control monitoring, and meta tagging have eased workflow burdens. But generative AI presents far thornier challenges for newsrooms, complicating journalistic rules and even posing an existential threat to the profession. This session provides a candid look at how news organizations are continuously reassessing their guidelines around AI usage and grappling with the step change it presents to the industry.

 

Keynote: Democracy, Technology, TV Journalism, and the 2024 Election

Never has the direct relationship between a free press and a healthy democracy been so keenly felt and precarious as it is now. As we head into a crucial U.S. election year when mistrust, misinformation, and disinformation are circulating with furious velocity, video journalists face a crucible. This session explores how the industry must meet that moment, where emerging technologies will come to bear, and what’s at stake in the work they do over the next year.

 

Building the Architecture of More Collaborative Content Creation Sold Dalet

News organizations are increasingly undertaking ambitious, wide-ranging, and often daily collaborations across their groups. How are they organizing their newsrooms to best foster these collaborations, identify topics of maximum national impact, and connect colleagues across vastly different markets? What technologies are surfacing to best enable these projects, facilitate cross-group communication, and make promising local content visible to all?

 

Reassessing the Streaming News Content Strategy

The news industry is already several years into a broad embrace of streaming as a necessary distribution channel for its content. What have they learned about what consumers want to see there? How are organizations continuing to develop and iterate original content for streaming? How deep are audiences’ appetites for experimentation on news streaming? And how are organizations programming FAST channels for maximum impact?

 

Adapting to a Culture of Continuous Crisis

The pace of TV newsroom life no longer allows for periods to regroup between major stories. Journalists are grappling with burnout, a barrage of threats both virtual and in-person, an erosion of their collective mental health, and job insecurity. TV stations must harden their physical infrastructure against devastating weather events and better train their staff to be safer in the field. This session explores how the industry can evolve fast enough to sustain the incessant red line of pressure on which it now operates daily.

 

Agility in Studio and Field Production

Major technological changes to studio design and field production have transformed how newscasts can be produced and how they feel to audiences. Technologists and journalists take an in-depth look at how news studio advances in video walls, augmented and extended reality are changing the fabric of newscasts themselves. They also examine how dramatic leaps in field production technology are forever changing workflows and the shape.
