Xytech’s ScheduALL Tracks Logistics For NBC Olympics Team

NBC Olympics is using ScheduALL for a ninth consecutive Olympic Games to deliver enterprise resource and transmission optimization. NBC Olympics will use the software to orchestrate the logistics of people, equipment, locations and transmission feeds.

Greg Dolan, Xytech CCO said, “We understand that flawless execution of the transmission feed is incredibly important to the success of NBC Olympics’ presentation from Tokyo. As a result, many people at Xytech dedicate large amounts of time ahead of the broadcast preparing for a perfect execution. During the Olympic Games, we are proud to have a Senior Implementation Manager working alongside NBC Olympics throughout the entirety of the Games.”

Dan Robertson, VP NBC Olympics IT, said, “The challenges and complexity in scheduling and managing all of NBC Olympics’ incoming and outgoing transmissions, and technical facilities, as well as Tokyo- and Stamford-based recordings is an incredibly complex and dynamic challenge.”

ScheduALL manages 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.
