Beijing 2022: NBC Olympics’ Sports Production Operations Center in Stamford, CT
Although NBC Olympics has been relying heavily on its Sports Production Operations Center in Stamford, CT, for several Games over the past decade, the at-home operation is bigger than ever for this year’s Beijing Winter Games. Not only is nearly all commentary being done from the Off-Tube Factory in Stamford, but the bulk of primetime and other marquee programming is using control rooms at home rather than at the International Broadcast Centre (IBC) in Beijing. And, on top of that, the NBC Olympics operation in Stamford incorporates 1080p HDR systems and workflows on a large scale for the first time and faces new transmission challenges in producing the primetime shows from three locations: Beijing, Stamford, and Los Angeles. In this photo gallery, check out some behind-the-scenes looks at NBC’s operation in Stamford.
