NBC Olympics selects Snell & Wilcox standards converters for Athens Olympics

NBC Olympics will rely exclusively on Snell & Wilcox Alchemist Platinum Ph.C and Mach1 platforms for standard-definition standards conversion of its Athens Olympic Games broadcasts next month.

Snell & Wilcox is supplying NBC Olympics with 22 motion-compensated converters, including six Alchemist Platinum Ph.C converters and 16 Kudos Plus Mach1 M.Sc standards converters.

The Alchemist Platinum Ph.C units will reside at the International Broadcast Center (IBC) to convert outgoing signals and some incoming feeds between 625 and 525 SD formats.

The Mach1 converters will convert backup outgoing signals at the IBC and will be housed in edit rooms and at various Olympic venues for conversion of source material shot in 525.
