The Winter Olympics are rolling to a close but SVG is still on the scene, covering all the video- production and tech happenings in PyeongChang, South Korea.

In addition, each episode will feature an in-depth interview with a major executive or intriguing personality who dissects their team’s efforts and offers opinions on larger trends facing the sports-media industry.

In today’s episode, Ken and Brandon discuss how digital distribution is changing the face of the Olympics both on the viewership side and in behind-the-scenes workflows. Plus they dive into the efforts of the OBS and the Olympic Channel here in PyeongChang.

Brandon also sits down with Mark Parkman, general manager of the Olympic Channel, to the young media entity, its growth, and the role it plays at an Olympic Games when it doesn't own live broadcast rights in many regions around the world.
