SVG Panel at NAB Focuses on 3D Sports

The Sports Video Group will host a special one-hour panel discussion on 3D sports production at the NAB Convention on Wednesday April 14 beginning at 11:30 a.m. in Room N109 of the Las Vegas Convention Center. Moderated by SVG Editorial Director Ken Kerschbaumer, the panel will feature examples of 3D content from the NBA, World Cup, BSkyB, the Masters golf tournament, and the NCAA Final Four as experts discuss proper production techniques and how sports-content creators can ensure delivery of a quality product.

“The concept of 3D sports may be new to many NAB attendees, but the panelists to be featured on Wednesday have been focused on 3D for years,” says Kerschbaumer. “More important, they are all familiar with what it takes to deliver a quality 3D experience.”

On the panel are Ken Aagaard, SVP, Operations and Production, CBS Sports; Peter Angell, director, Production, Host Broadcast Services; Steve Helmuth, EVP, Operations and Technology, NBA Entertainment; George Hoover, CTO, NEP Broadcasting; Ted Kennedy, producer, 3ality Digital; and Jerry Steinberg, SVP, Field Operations, Fox Sports.
