(New York, United States--February 5, 2014) MOG Technologies has been selected to provide its MXF stitching and advanced GOP splicing to NBC Olympics, a division of the NBC Sports Group, during its production of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, from February 6-February 23. The announcement was made today by David Mazza, Senior Vice President, Engineering, NBC Olympics, and Luís Miguel Sampaio, CEO, MOG Technologies.
Following previous years MOG Technologies has been selected by NBC Olympics to provide reliable video conforming technologies to cover the 2014 Olympic Winter Games.
With access to a full range of automated solutions for File-Based MXF Conform, Re-Wrap, Digital Delivery and Real Time Playback, NBC Olympics will ensure great interoperability between all the platforms and media formats used in the coverage of the Winter Games.
The broadcaster will be taking advantage of mxfSPEEDRAIL F1000 capabilities, to conform the captured clips from Harmonic MediaDeck 7000, splicing the disparate clips together and re-wrapping the finished product into a new MXF OP1a. The output will then be rapidly delivered to the multi-platform distribution servers.
The system will also enable the handling of growing files, saving time to the editors, when sending their EDL’s for conform, merging sub-clips from several LongGOP sources.
The fully interoperable system will be integrated with Avid Interplay MAM, which handles the distribution and load-balancing of conform jobs, and Harmonic Media Grid storage, offering a high traffic performance and a great interoperability between platforms.
“We are proud to be working once again in such a major broadcast event like the Winter Olympics and be part of NBC Olympics’ choice to complete its production workflow,” says Luís Miguel Sampaio, CEO from MOG Technologies. “mxfSPEEDRAILtechnology will have a major role in media consolidation and in the immediate distribution of the contents to the eager audience.”
Darryl Jefferson, Vice President, Digital Workflow said: “We are pleased to be working once again with MOG Technologies and we are confident that mxfSPEEDRAIL product line will help us efficiently conform video for multiplatform delivery- and help more people to enjoy the Sochi Winter Games competition.”
