Looking for fast & reliable media processing & storage

NBC Olympics, a division of the NBC Sports Group, is responsible for producing, programming, and promoting NBC Universal’s Olympic coverage. It is renowned for its unsurpassed Olympic heritage and award-winning production.
For its fast-turn production workflow for Sochi 2014, NBC Olympics established a large TV facility within the Sochi International Broadcasting Center (IBC), from which it provided 100 or more highlights per day based on about 40 OBS feeds and 200 of its own feeds.

NBC gets results

Equipped with a Harmonic media server and shared storage platform that effectively spanned two continents, NBC Olympics was able to provide its audience with top-quality broadcasts and to make more than 250 highlights a day.
Using MediaDeck and MediaGrid systems installed both in Sochi and Stamford, NBC Olympics provided its staff with highly efficient tools for searching, browsing, retrieving, editing proxy-based content, and conforming full-resolution content using a high-speed connection between Sochi and the U.S.
In Stamford, all the incoming content was logged, enriched with metadata, stored, and made accessible to all personnel involved in Olympics production for broadcast and online distribution.

Harmonic's Spectrum X enables seamless remote production

Leverage new and existing infrastructure to establish a highly efficient and very cost-effective workflow for multiplatform content.

NBC Olympics employed Harmonic storage and server systems to support remote fast-turn content creation for its extensive multiplatform coverage of the Sochi 2014 Winter Games.

The Harmonic MediaGrid system provided centralized shared storage, while the MediaDeck server systems provided on-the-fly capture and proxy generation for all incoming materials.

The complete Harmonic platform granted both local and remote staff access to the full-resolution files and proxies, enabling them to review and edit them into highlights clips and sequences.
