NBC and a Gold Medal (Network) Performance
This will be NBC Universal’s (NBCU) first ever all-IP International Broadcast Center operation at the Olympic Games, powered by a Cisco network. NBCUniversal (NBCU) will deliver more than 7,000 hours of content from the 2021 Tokyo Games to viewers. The moment those cameras capture the image, it starts encoding. That image is then transferred, via a network, by producers in the control room to viewers across the nation. It is then distributed to the consumer in 4k - and it all happens in a moment.
Celebrating 10 years of Olympics partnership with NBC
As the 2018 Olympic Winter Games get underway in PyeongChang, South Korea, Cisco is proud to once again play a key role in delivering content from the world’s largest sporting event.
