Cardiff, Wales, 15th October 2020 – The Workflow Innovation Group has launched a new series of podcasts aimed primarily at the media technology community.

 Sponsored by Object Matrix, Vidispine and Zixi the podcast series is an outlet for open, honest, and sometimes controversial discussions around developments and events in the media industry. Hosted by Christy King (Christy King LLC) and Steve Sharman (Hackthorn Innovation), the format of each episode will see a panel of media industry experts reacting to statements and facts put before them about the subject being discussed. The panelists will then decide if those statements are ‘Brilliant’ or ‘Bust.’

“We started WIG in 2010 to have frank and open conversations about industry challenges and how to address them. Today, with COVID, it is even more important that we make use of any means of communication, such as this podcast, to encourage discussion and share pragmatic thinking across the worldwide media industry.” Steve Sharman, co-founder WIG.

The first 3 podcasts will discuss subjects from the state of the media technology industry, to the emerging challenges of deep fake video and the future of trade shows.

“With a tsunami of webinars and online demos in a post physical trade show world there are few outlets where the industry is not bombarded with sales hyperbole. That may sound rich coming from myself but we created WIG back in 2010 to be a group that focused on media business issues not rhetoric” stated Nick Pearce, co-founder WIG and Object Matrix.

He further explained, “We are very excited to be supporting this podcast series that we hope will be an informative and fun listening experience for the industry.”

‘WIG TALKS: Brilliant or Bust’ will be available on most podcast distribution platforms from the end of October.
