Home / About SVG

The Sports Video Group was formed in 2006 to support the professional community that relies on video, audio, and broadband technologies to produce and distribute sports content. Formed in the U.S., the organisation has expanded to include a European division and also has hosted events in Australia, Japan, and Singapore.

Our Mission

  • To advance the creation, production, and distribution of sports content.
  • To provide a knowledge resource for the growing community of sports video professionals working for broadcast/broadband organisations, professional teams and leagues, schools, and venues.
  • To facilitate a dialogue with manufacturers, suppliers and technology developers that will improve the quality and profitability of sports programming.
