TANDBERG Television supplies MPEG-2 technology for NBC Torino coverage

TANDBERG Television provided MPEG-2 video compression technology to NBC during the network's coverage of the 2006 Winter Olympics from Torino, Italy.

TANDBERG Television's DTV systems played a role in the delivery of footage of both HD and SD video from the NBC broadcast center in Torino and throughout its U.S. network.

NBC's employment of TANDBERG Television's compression technology enabled the network to manage bandwidth for the most cost-effective delivery of HD content. TANDBERG Television has been facilitating the delivery of HD content for more than seven years and has been a provider of compression technology for NBC and its Skypath Network System since 2001.

NBC used several TANDBERG Television products, including SD and HD encoders, professional receiver/decoders, multiplexers, modulators, ATM adapters, IP adapters and other control equipment to broadcast the Olympic Winter Games to viewers in the United States. TANDBERG Television also provided on-site support with engineers in both Torino and New York.
