Building off the technological leaps that were taken at the 2014 Sochi Games, NBC Olympics has again partnered with FileCatalyst to help with the movement of video files during the duration of the Rio Games. During the Games, NBC Olympics will utilise FileCatalyst technology to move data over a 5 Gbps link between their headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut, and the NBC Olympics compound within the International Broadcast Centre in Rio de Janeiro, as well as between many other interconnected sites and event venues..
“We are excited to once again be an integral part of the production workflow for such a large sporting event”, said Chris Bailey, “We’re building on what we did in Sochi, and adding to our reputation as a leader in acceleration technology for live sports production.”
