If you are interested in entering the ‘Most Innovative Sports Broadcast or Broadcast Technology’ category here’s some more information on why it has been included in this year’s Sports Technology Awards.

Since the 1970s, broadcast’s influence on sports has increased to the unprecedented levels we see today. Thanks to broadcasters and production houses, and the technology companies which support them, sport has opened up to numbers of fans and broadcast methods unthinkable just 30 years ago.

The primary remit of broadcasters and those who supply them is to communicate sporting action in ways that are as accessible and heroic as possible. The money associated with this is huge and, as such, the influence of broadcast is evident everywhere in sport, through scheduling, stadia infrastructure, sponsorship and marketing, the tools now given to match officials…whilst not quite endless, the list is certainly long.

As an industry, sports broadcasters strive to push boundaries, which results in their seemingly endless delivery of hugely impressive and exciting innovations.

‘Most Innovative Sports Broadcast or Broadcast Technology’ is an established category and our judges tell us that they really enjoy seeing innovative sports technology developments amongst the entries.

As one of the most influential forces in the sports industry, the caliber of entries is set to be ever-more impressive. But who is leading the charge? All will be revealed at the Sports Technology Awards ceremony in 2020.
