NBC using Artemis consoles for Sochi coverage
Calrec Audio has been selected to provide five Artemis Consoles to NBC Olympics, a division of the NBC Sports Group, during its production of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, from February 6-23.
The announcement was made by David Mazza, senior vice president, engineering, NBC Olympics, and Henry Goodman, head of sales and marketing, Calrec Audio.
NBC Olympics has purchased two 64-fader Artemis Shine consoles and augmented its arsenal by renting a further 40-fader and two 24-fader Artemis Beam consoles from Calrec.
“We are extremely proud to be the mixing console manufacturer selected once again by NBC Olympics during the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi,” said Goodman. “After the success of the Summer Games in 2012, we are delighted to continue working with NBC Olympics and thank them for their belief in Calrec by choosing our desks.”
Additionally, Calrec is supplying many stageboxes in digital, analogue and MADI formats to fulfill the I/O requirements. Calrec is also providing NBC Olympics with on-site engineering support prior to and during the Games. Calrec has been supporting NBC Olympics with on-site engineers since the Atlanta Olympics in 1996 and has been part of Emmy Award-winning teams for NBC Olympics’ coverage in 2010 and 2012.
