The opening 60-minute panel discussion at Broadcast Sport’s Sports Tech Innovation Forum, held at BT Sport studios in Stratford, London, on 22 November 2018, is now available to stream online (watch it below).

The discussion brought together leading sports broadcasters (Sky Sports, BT Sport, Eurosport, ITV) to talk through how they have embraced pioneering tech innovations to enhance sports production and sports broadcasts.

Under debate were the relative merits of tech-driven developments such as ever higher resolutions, higher frame rates, AR/virtual studios, data-driven analysis, HDR, VR/immersive content, Artificial Intelligence (auto-highlights), live 4K streaming and sport-specific OTT platforms.
