SCHEDUALL TO PROVIDE RESOURCE MANAGEMENT & TRANSMISSION SOLUTIONS FOR NBC OLYMPICS’ PRODUCTION OF THE LONDON GAMES
April 13, 2012
ScheduALL will again provide comprehensive scheduling and operational management software systems to NBC Olympics, a division of the NBC Sports Group, during its production of the 2012 London Olympic Games from London, England July 27 to August 12, 2012. The announcement was made today by Craig Lau, Vice President, Information Technology, NBC Olympics and Joel Ledlow, CEO of ScheduALL.
NBC Olympics has once again turned to ScheduALL’s ERM solution to manage the highly complex, dynamic and fast paced environment of the Games. This will be the fifth straight Olympics for which NBCU has leveraged the expertise of ScheduALL’s software and services team to orchestrate the logistics of people, equipment, locations and transmission feeds.
“We are proud be a part of the genius that NBC Olympics brings to this endeavor, and to be consistently recognized for our reliability, innovation and competency for getting it right when it matters most.”, said Joel Ledlow, CEO of ScheduALL. “ScheduALL is widely recognized as an industry standard exactly because we perform in the most pressing, mission-critical situations.”
Lau said: “ScheduALL is a trusted partner and I am glad they are again part of our 2012 London Olympics operations team. Our relationship with them covers the last four Olympics, and they continue to play a vital role in our ability to provide thousands of hours of coverage over the 17 days. Working with ScheduALL again for the 2012 London Olympic Games was an easy decision.”
Prior to its first ScheduALL implementation for the Athens Olympic Games in 2004, NBC relied on a manual process for managing and scheduling feeds. ScheduALL manages the critical information like video router assignments and satellite uplink scheduling, and automatically passes the information to downstream systems to facilitate on-air coverage for each feed.
