The Fast Turnaround TV conference from PSNE sister title TVBEurope will take place at The Soho Hotel London on 13 March 2012.

The event will examine the technologies and workflows behind big live/as-live productions and is set to be chaired by John Ive (pictured), currently director of business development & technology at the IABM. Ive is a consultant and technologist at IveTech and formerly director of strategic planning at Sony Broadcast.

Ive also chairs TVBEurope’s annual 3D Masters conference and his experience spans senior management, technology, operations, marketing, training, and research & development.

In the increasing battle to hold onto eyeballs, large live and as-live productions (sports, shows, political and cultural events etc) are becoming the cornerstones of a broadcaster’s schedule.

‘Watercooler TV’ pretty much equates to Fast Turnaround TV – high-pressure shows with complex collaborative workflows, where the potential for chaos or catastrophe is never far away. It’s now more important than ever for broadcasters, production companies, facilities houses and equipment vendors as the traditional TV audience continues to fragment and evolve.

Fast Turnaround TV is a unique TVBEurope conference that addresses the new realities of staging and profiting from big ‘event’ television productions.
