NBC tracks, manages Torino IBC feeds with ScheduLINK

ScheduALL is providing NBC with broadcast workflow management solutions during the 2006 Winter Olympics.

NBC is using ScheduLINK resource management software to track and manage feeds coming into its facility at the International Broadcast Center (IBC) in Torino from the various Olympic venues. The system is a database that tracks feeds going in and out of the IBC facility from the various Olympics venues.

NBC operators can then determine how to manage where the feed is going, whether it will be live or delayed, and how it will be edited. Feeds are filtered out to the various NBC networks, including USA Network, CNBC, MSNBC and Telemundo.

A key benefit of ScheduLINK is that it allows each department at NBC to work independently yet maintain constant awareness of each other’s schedules and transmission activity. This way, important resources such as VTRs and routers can be allocated in the most efficient manner possible.
