Broadcasters will join government experts to discuss collection, analysis, reporting, production, and dissemination of complex programming

Washington, DC -- The National Association of Broadcasters will host a one-day workshop in Washington, DC on Thursday, December 1. The workshop will unite broadcasters with government and military professionals to discuss how managing large or extremely complex news and sports events can be applied to the government sector. Participants will learn about applications that can be used to effectively analyze and distribute accurate mission-critical news and information on a timely and professional basis for a variety of platforms.

The workshop, titled "Motion Imagery Strategies in Broadcast," will examine how broadcasters strategically plan and manage the production of content for complex "Pooled" events. The process involves sorting through content from multiple sources, producing, managing and distributing multimedia content and full motion video (FMV) in minutes.

Broadcast industry professionals (editorial and technical) will join government experts to discuss topics such as best practices, workflow, user generated content, hardware needs, staff training and more. Case studies will also look at strategic planning, coordination, tradecraft skills and infrastructure required to produce accurate and compelling content for various audiences.
