Technology leaders who’ve spent their year in an unplanned, rapid transition to remote production conditions will review the highlights of those experiences and analyze what they mean for future workflow changes in a post-COVID environment during a panel at TVNewsCheck’s NewsTECHForum, presented virtually this year.

Tom Casey, VP of technology, Meredith Local Media; Eric Neel, director of IT infrastructure/security, Hubbard Broadcasting; Ray Thurber, CTO, E.W. Scripps; and Craig Wilson, product evangelist, broadcast and media enterprise, market solutions, Avid, will join TVNewsCheck Contributing Editor Glen Dickson for Remote Production: From Exception to Option, presented live at 2 p.m. ET on Dec. 17.

“The past year has changed how technology and news executives think about how a newsroom functions, from planning and collaboration to how video is acquired, edited and distributed across multiple platforms,” said TVNewsCheck Editor Michael Depp. “These seasoned executives and managers will share what they’ve learned and what they need from their technology partners going forward to make some of these changes more permanent elements of their workflows.”


NewsTECHForum will also feature sessions on Novel Approaches to News Storytelling Under Stress; Pivoting the Newsroom to Crisis; How Will Digital and Streaming Storytelling Evolve in 2021?; Advances in IP and Cloud Workflows; Standing Out on Social in a Historic Year; and News 2022: The Reshaping of Programming, Technology and Audience. Veteran news producer David Bohrman will be the keynote interview.

Attendees will participate in the live, daily, two-and-a-half-hour streamed sessions on Zoom Webinar, where they can pose questions to speakers, participate in live audience polling and wrap up the day with half-hour, open-mic Roundtables on key issues.

Before, during and after the conference, attendees may also network, submit suggested questions for speakers, chat about issues, browse virtual exhibits and set appointments with sponsors by downloading the TVNewsCheck Events app from the Apple or Android stores. App users who have registered for NewsTECHForum also have the option of watching the programming’s live stream on the app.
