ScheduALL Software to enable NBC Olympics to manage transmission feeds and resources during its coverage of 2014 Sochi Winter Games
 
Feb. 4, 2014 - PRLog -- NEW YORK – ScheduALL has once again been selected to provide transmission and resource management to NBC Olympics, a division of the NBC Sports Group, during its production of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, from February 6-23. The announcement was made today jointly by Craig Lau, Vice President, Information Technology, NBC Olympics, and Stefan Nied, Vice President, Worldwide Operations, ScheduALL.

NBC Olympics has again turned to ScheduALL’s advanced resource management solutions to coordinate the highly dynamic environment of the Games. This will be the seventh straight Olympics for which NBCU has leveraged the expertise of ScheduALL’s software and services group to orchestrate the logistics of people, equipment, locations and transmission feeds.

“We are privileged to contribute to the success of the NBC Olympics broadcast for the seventh consecutive time,” said Stefan Nied, Vice President, Worldwide Operations, ScheduALL. “We approach each Games with broad industry knowledge and expertise, combined with intimate understanding of the needs for NBC Olympics during the Games. This empowers NBC Olympics to execute complex transmissions flawlessly.”

Lau said: “We are pleased to be working once again with ScheduALL because they are the clear-cut industry standard and continue to play a vital role in our ability to provide thousands of hours of coverage. We know their technology will help us to improve our viewers experience during the broadcast of the Games across the NBCUniversal networks.”

Prior to its first ScheduALL implementation for the Athens Olympic Games in 2004, NBC Olympics relied on a manual process for managing and scheduling feeds. ScheduALL manages critical information such as video router assignments and satellite uplink scheduling, and automatically passes the information to downstream systems to facilitate on-air coverage for each feed.
