NBC Olympics, a division of the NBC Sports Group, has selected RTS to provide broadcast intercom systems and support for its production of the Games of the XXXII Olympiad, which take place in Tokyo, Japan, from July 23 to August 8.
The announcement was made by John Pastore, Director Broadcast Communications, NBC Sports Group, and Denis Castanet, Director Global Product Management, RTS.
“RTS has been NBC Olympics’ broadcast intercom partner of choice for over 25 years,” says Castanet. “We’re proud to continue playing a key role in their coverage of the Tokyo Olympics. We are equally honored to have supported the NBC Olympics production team on their transition from analog to IP, which has enabled all their local and global locations to act as a single virtual location, thanks to our unique RTS Trunking solutions. The installation for NBC Olympics’ coverage of the Tokyo Olympics will be full IP, comprising over 600 ports and leveraging two singular and superior RTS technologies: OMNEO high-quality audio for local communication and RVON for international comms.”
Pastore adds, “We’re very excited to be utilizing ODIN, RTS’s newest intercom matrix solution, in Tokyo. RTS continues to innovate and adapt to meet the high technical demands of large-scale productions that are required for massive events such as the Olympic Games.”
