Devlin Expands to Sports Production

Devlin Design Group is known for simply building the best TV news sets in the industry.

But, now Devlin is also expanding their sports production portfolio as well. 

As regional sports networks and operations rely more heavily on “at-home” production models, sports broadcasters are leveraging their studios more than ever. High-tech video, big graphics, and flexibility are all critical to a successful studio set. And that is where Devlin comes in.

The company is taking all their news set building knowledge and applying it to sports. 

Sports Video Group sat down with Dan Devlin, owner/chief creative strategist, Devlin Design Group, a popular set- and lighting-design firm to discuss the latest trends in studio design and take a look at the company’s latest work.

Why did you decide to join SVG as a Premium sponsor?
We realized the sports-production community doesn’t know us all that well. We’ve been very successful in the TV-news–production arena for 29 years but [are] relatively unknown outside of that genre.

Why sports production?
In the world of TV news, we’ve achieved great success. Team DDG is already the go-to company for truly groundbreaking design in TV-news production. We’ve won the Set of the Year Award five years running, and the PromaxBDA Gold Award for scenic design the last three years.  I guess you might say we’re on a roll and a bit restless, and we’re always looking for new challenges!

You’re exhibiting at the upcoming SVG Summit. What are your expectations?
We are very excited to be attending. Last year, we went to the Summit to kick the tires a bit and see what it was all about. It seemed to be the perfect venue for us to debut Team DDG to the SVG community.
