NEP Group units help NBC provide coverage from three venues
“NBC and NEP started our Olympic journey together nearly 30 years ago, at the 1988 Seoul Olympics,” said Glen Levine of NEP U.S. “I’m happy to say that for NBC’s coverage of every Olympic Games since that time, NEP’s support team of managers and engineering specialists has been an integral part of this successful, longstanding partnership. We’re extremely proud of our relationship with NBC Olympics and thrilled to return to South Korea for the production of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games, through our OB units, flypacks and creative technical solutions.”
NEP is providing outside broadcast units NCP8 A and B, Iridium, and Zinc, as well as associated gear and technical support, for live coverage of the Opening ceremony at PyeongChang Olympic Stadium, figure skating and short track speed skating events at Gangneung Ice Arena, and Ice Hockey games at Gangneung Hockey Centre.
NEP and its Bexel division have supported every Olympics since Atlanta in 1996 and will have many broadcast engineers and technical support staff on the ground in South Korea.
