Signiant file transfer software flies to Tokyo Olympics
Signiant has announced an agreement with NBC Olympics to provide intelligent file transfer software for the Tokyo Olympics broadcasting. The Olympics will take place from July 23rd to August 8th in Japan.
This technology will connect the broadcast centers of Tokyo and Stamford, CT with standard IP networks, enabling data transfer from one to another, including graphic works. This was not the only announcement of NBC’s providers today, as EVS was confirmed as production server provider.
“Signiant is excited to partner with NBC Olympics for the production of the Tokyo Games this summer,” said Craig. “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.”
“NBC Olympics is pleased to work with Signiant’s Managers and Agents solution,” said Jefferson. “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.”
