Where Technology Meets News Storytelling

Presented by TVNewsCheck and the SVG, the NewsTECHForum offers a forward-thinking environment where news management, production and technology professionals can discuss issues such as staying relevant in a non-stop, multiscreen world; keeping journalists and their data and sources safe in an increasingly challenging cyber-security world and bleeding-edge mobile news gathering.

“Newsgathering and production are undergoing tremendous change,” said Harry A. Jessell, editor and co-founder of TVNewsCheck. “NewsTECHForum brings together news and technology managers to talk about the state of their art and to offer manufacturers ideas about how next-generation technology can meet their needs.”

Ken Kerschbaumer, executive director of editorial at SVG, added that NewsTECHForum’s location in New York City “will offer an opportunity for news and technology executives at networks, TV station groups and the video units of major newspapers to talk with their peers about challenges they are facing. Because NewsTECHForum is co-located with the SVG Summit, news leaders can also meet with their peers in sports production to talk about issues they share.”
