File movement is central to NBC's remote workflows in Tokyo and Stamford.
NBC Olympics will use Signiant’s file transfer software for its production of the Tokyo Games.
With Signiant’s software, NBC Olympics will be able to move petabytes of footage from Tokyo back to its International Broadcast Center in Stamford, Conn. Editors there can begin creating highlights almost immediately. The software also allows for content, including graphics work and pre-recorded footage, to be transferred back to the broadcast center in Tokyo.
Darryl Jefferson, VP Post Production & Digital Workflow, NBC Sports & Olympics, said, “File movement is central to all of our remote workflows both in Tokyo as well as in our broadcast center in Stamford. We are excited to see how it optimizes our transfers and provides greater resiliency across our domestic and international transfers. Signiant is enabling us to scale up to handle our Tokyo Olympics workload and our increased file sizes due to our HDR and 4K production efforts.”
“Signiant is excited to partner with NBC Olympics for the production of the Tokyo Games this summer,” said Margaret Craig, CEO, Signiant. “Fan expectations for more immersive viewing experiences are growing and with NBC Olympics’ remote production operations, they will be sure to delight their audiences with amazing coverage. We’re proud that Signiant’s software will play such a central role in enabling NBC Olympics to seamlessly leverage their talent and technology located halfway around the world.”
