Here's a peek at the agenda:

12:05 - 12:35 p.m: Major League Baseball Insights

The Major League Baseball season is around the corner, and teams are working on generating the next piece of content that will get fans ready to go for the upcoming regular season schedule. Professionals from MLB organizations highlight the brainstorming that occurs early in the year during spring training and what ideas or techniques from last year can still be used this season.

12:35 - 1:05 p.m: Capture Technology: The Latest Cameras, Lenses, and Equipment for Team-Based Productions

Confirmed Panelists:

Mike DesRoches, Sony, National Account Organization - Sports West & New Media

1:05 - 1:35 p.m: National Football League Insights

In the National Football League, content truly is the king. Whether it's covering the NFL Combine, NFL Draft, the regular season schedule, or some of the league's marquee events like the Super Bowl, Pro Bowl, and international games at London's Tottenham Hotspur stadium, digital crews are always on the go. Team producers speak about the coverage of these tentpole events, how it differs from their duties during a regular game, and more.

1:35 - 2:05 p.m: Professional Soccer Insights with MLS and NWSL

Ahead of the 2022 MLS and NWSL seasons, there are a lot of reasons to be excited as a soccer fan in the United States. Headlined by both year-old teams and newly introduced expansion franchises, individuals from both leagues discuss what it's like to cover a new club and how to get new fans invested during the first season.

Confirmed Panelists:

Jennifer Pransky, Angel City FC, Head of Content

2:05 - 2:35 p.m.: Editing, Storage, and MAM: How Teams Produce & Manage More Media Than Ever

2:35 - 3:05 p.m.: National Hockey League Insights

In the National Hockey League, all 32 teams do their best to showcase the fast-paced, yet artistic nature of the sport. In this 30-minute discussion, content creators spotlight special projects around marquee occasions like the NHL Winter Classic, NHL Stadium Series, and NHL Outdoor Games at Lake Tahoe in the United States and the NHL Heritage Classic in Canada and how responsibilities change when the schedule flips to the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Creatives from both leagues break down the material dedicated to these anniversary seasons and workflows that are still being leveraged from the bubble.
