2:00 p.m.: The Pandemic Effect: How Are Remote Workflows Fueling the Rise of Cloud-Based Ecosystems?
When the pandemic forced sports-media organizations to make a tectonic shift towards remote-production workflows, many began doing so via cloud-based infrastructure and services. While the shift from on-prem to the cloud was already well under way, the pandemic rapidly accelerated this transition. How are you utilizing the cloud today to enable remote workflows and allow your production team to create content reliably from anywhere?

2:25 p.m.: Overcoming Pain Points: Where are the Bottlenecks and Breakdowns in the Cloud?
As the transition to remote and cloud-based tools ramped up during the pandemic, so too did the challenges that go along with these workflows. What have been the biggest obstacles you have faced in dealing with these cloud ecosystems and new production models? How have you dealt with the limitations of the cloud-based tools, consumer-grade internet speeds, and limited asset security?

2:50 p.m.: The Cloudy Crystal Ball: How Do You Plan to Leverage the Cloud Over the Next Five Years?
While no one has a crystal ball foretelling what the future holds for the industry, one thing is clear: media-production workflows will look very different post-pandemic. The cloud is expected to play a major role in this evolution, but many unanswered questions remain. How do you expect to utilize cloud-based infrastructure and tools in the coming years to ensure your production operation is faster, more efficient, and secure come 2025 and beyond?

3:15 p.m.: Roundtable Concludes
