Live From the US Open: NEP’s Nick Romano on collaborative energy and innovations of 2021
The 2021 US Open heads into its final weekend, and, for the NEP Group, it will close out an event for which more of its personnel than ever were onsite, overseeing world feed operations, operations for selected rights holders, Arthur Ashe digital boards, a virtual flash studio, and more. For NEP engineering manager Nick Romano, the event this year showed the power of teamwork, not only within the NEP family but beyond.
The US Open production effort is a multi-pronged one, with not only NEP but also Gravity Media, CP Communications, and others onsite working together.
“When we are onsite, we just make sure that everybody’s clients’ needs are met and the show goes as flawlessly as possible,” says Romano. “We’re working hand in hand with Gravity Media to put on a good show all the way around for the USTA, ESPN, and all the rightsholders. I’m just proud to be a part of the team that brings this together.”
