Zenith to Supply HD Gear to SI for Winter Olympics Coverage
Sports Illustrated is working with Zenith to provide HDTV monitors, displays and HDTV decoders for its hospitality venues at the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.
Separately, in conjunction with the ATSC Forum and the Organization of American States, Zenith is installing HDTVs in Washington, D.C. for viewing Olympic events broadcast in high-definition by NBC and HDNet during the Games.
In Salt Lake City, Zenith is installing more than $300,000 worth of digital HDTV equipment - including 60-inch widescreen plasma, direct-view HDTV monitors and digital HDTV set-top boxes - throughout Sports Illustrated's key venues, such as its main hospitality center at the historic Union Pacific Railroad Depot in Salt Lake City and the Park City Marriot, which will serve as SI's home base during the Games.
