Aberdeen Receives Accolades Worthy of Gold at the Rio Olympic Games!


Press Release Sep 8, 2016
NBC's Olympic Games coverage in Rio was highlighted by a graphics package using servers built by Aberdeen.

Santa Fe Springs, CA, September 8, 2016: “NBC's coverage of the recent summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro was highlighted by a highly robust, in-house built graphics package using servers built by Aberdeen,” announced Moshe Ovadya, President of Aberdeen.

NBC tapped a veteran team to create the huge graphic package. The SVG (Sports Video Group) Blog recently reported that David Barton and John Schleef, on board for their sixth Olympic Games, were NBC Sports' lead art directors. Their goal was to design and create a graphics package that would encapsulate not only the spirit of the games, but of the city of Rio de Janeiro as well.

"NBC created a powerful backend content management system that relied on Aberdeen servers," said Jack Tateel, COO of Aberdeen. "NBC engineering created a powerful, self-contained rendering package that could be moved to Rio and used 24/7 throughout the games."

NBC's Olympic effort was huge, creating more than 6,700 hours of programming across multiple broadcast and cable networks as well as digital platforms. That computes to a little over 350 hours per day of coverage for each of the 19 days of the games.

"Engineering-wise, this has been a very satisfying [Olympics]," reported Phil Paully, director, graphics engineering and operations, NBC Sports and NBC Olympics, in an SVG Blog post. "We are trying some new things, and they are working."

Aberdeen is frequently the choice for servers and storage equipment of high profile clients such as NBC, not only because of their high performance hardware solutions, but also because they are uniquely positioned as the primary firm offering fully customizable server and storage products.
