Audazzio™ served as the lead sponsor for the “OTT, Streaming, and Digital Workshop” program, which took place on the afternoon of day 1 of the summit
San Antonio, TX, and Boulder, CO: Audazzio™, an innovative software startup and finalist in Comcast NBCUniversal’s SportsTech Accelerator program, recently had a strong presence at the 16th Annual Sports Video Group (SVG) Summit, which took place December 12-13, 2022, in New York City. The SVG Summit is the sports broadcasting industry’s biggest gathering as the top engineering and production professionals meet to discuss, debate and direct the future of sports broadcasting. Audazzio served as a sponsor for the event, which brought together more than 1,200 sports-production professionals at the New York Hilton Midtown hotel for two days of informational panels and workshops, cutting-edge technology showcases, and, most important, plenty of opportunities for attendees to network face-to-face and catch up with friends old and new.
Participating in the summit were key members of Audazzio’s management team, including Danny Abelson, Chief Operating Officer; Michele Klumb, Vice President of Marketing; Frank Garland, Head of Revenue; and Roger Charlesworth, Chief Technical Liaison. Abelson presented opening remarks at the beginning of the Day 1 program, and later that afternoon he contributed to the panel “Streaming and OTT: What’s Next in Tech?” alongside other thought leaders from Wildmoka, ATEME and Zixi. Subscription streaming services and platforms continue to offer new ways to present live content and drive interactivity with sports brands. In this panel, Abelson and his co-panelists broke down their thoughts on what strategies need to be considered (or accelerating) and the technology obstacles that remain.
Abelson remarks, “As Audazzio continues its rollout, we have targeted sports broadcasting as a critical market that our technology is well suited for. We recognize Sports Video Group as the preeminent professional technical organization in sports broadcasting, so this summit was an obvious choice for us as an event to help sponsor and an occasion to present our technology and unique expertise to others in the industry. Audazzio has big, cutting-edge things coming, and we made that known to all those in attendance. In addition, we got to hear from a number of other organizations and startups in this space, which gave us a chance to learn about other emerging technologies.”
