NEP Group Broadcast Units to Enable NBC Olympics to Deliver Coverage from Key Venues During its Coverage of Tokyo Olympics

NBC Olympics, a division of the NBC Sports Group, has selected NEP Group to provide mobile broadcasting, engineering consultation, and technical support for its production of the Games of the XXXII Olympiad, which take place in Tokyo, Japan, from July 23 – August 8. The announcement was made today by Chip Adams, VP Venue Engineering, NBC Sports Group & Olympics, and Glen Levine, President, NEP U.S. Broadcast Services.

NEP will provide outside broadcast units Supershooter 8, ST1 and ND6, as well as associated services, gear and technical support, for live coverage of the Opening Ceremony at Tokyo’s Olympic Stadium, as well as athletics, swimming and diving events throughout the Games.

“NBC Olympics and NEP started our Olympic Games journey together more than 30 years ago at the 1988 Seoul Olympics,” said Levine. “I’m happy to say that NEP’s team of managers, engineers and technicians has been an integral part of NBC Olympics’ coverage of every Olympic Games since that time. We’re extremely proud of our relationship with NBC Olympics and thrilled to support this successful, longstanding partnership with our OB units, robo cams and high-speed cameras, flypacks and creative technical solutions.”

“NEP has been a great partner over the years supporting our Olympic Games production efforts with excellent facilities and a staff that is focused on providing the best service to their clients,” said Adams. “We look forward to another successful chapter in our continuing Olympic Games partnership.”

NEP’s U.S. Broadcast Services and U.S. Specialty Capture divisions will send an extensive team of engineering, technical, operations, logistics and project management specialists to support NBC Olympics’ production of the Olympic Summer Games from Tokyo.
