On the long road to fully cloud-based news production, broadcast technologists continue to wrangle over what should stay on-premises versus migrating to the cloud. Tech leaders from Sinclair, Fox Television Stations, NBCUniversal Local, Bitcentral and Imagine Communications will share their own criteria and how those moves have played out in a TVNewsCheck Working Lunch Webinar, “Hybrid Cloud Strategies,” on Aug. 10 at 1 p.m. ET.

The discussion will examine station groups’ progress in moving live news to the cloud along with the differences in cloud adoption between networks and local stations. It will also consider how to leverage the cloud for both network and local station operations.

“Given the current state of technology, the key question is what makes sense to keep on prem and what broadcast functions make sense to move to public or private cloud,” said TVNewsCheck Editor Michael Depp. “This panel will confront those questions directly drawing from their immediate experience.”
