Technology, The Cloud And The Station Group Of The Future At TV2025
Cloud workflows for the media industry have taken a great leap forward since 2020, as leading technologists work toward moving playout and production technology into the cloud. Their progress, and how it’s reshaping their operations, will be the subject of a panel discussion, Technology, The Cloud and The Station Group Of The Future, at TVNewsCheck’s TV2025: Monetizing the Future event on Oct. 19 at the NAB New York Show.
Kurt Rao, SVP and CTO, Tegna; Jeff Birch, CTO, CBS Television Stations; Mike Kralec, CTO, Sinclair Broadcast Group; and Jon Raidel, global lead for live production in cloud, Vizrt Group, will join moderator and TVNewsCheck Contributing Editor Glen Dickson for the 4 p.m. panel. They will consider how the movement to the cloud is affecting technology roadmaps at large and medium-size TV station groups, where NextGen TV, streaming, hubbing and news sharing are all also important priorities.
“Station groups have so many opportunities in the cloud for NextGen TV, hubbing and hubbing production,” said TVNewsCheck Publisher and Co-Founder Kathy Haley. “They are on the cutting edge of so many challenges, and Kurt, Jeff, Mike and Jon will share how their groups are right up there with the networks on testing what’s possible and how they’re moving towards a cloud future.”
