MOG Solutions Toboggans For NBC Beijing Olympic Coverage

"MOG Solutions has been selected by NBC Olympics to provide tools for enabling integration between NBC Olympics’ Media Asset Management System, editing suites and video servers during the network’s coverage of the 2008 Olympic Games from Beijing, China.

Following the success of the 2006 Torino Olympic Winter Games, where MOG Solutions provided MXF Proxy Encoders to NBC for capturing on-the-fly metadata in a real-time MPEG-4 MXF file, MOG Solutions will now be providing NBC with the Toboggan, a full set of tools that will enable NBC Olympics’ New Media production group to share media and tasks between the operations located in Beijing and in New York. The new Toboggan product line provides a set of automation tools that will conform the live event coverage video and metadata, managed in NBC Olympics’ Blue Order Media Asset Management system, and export these for further processing to Avid edit stations or transcoding engines for eventual delivery to multiple distribution platforms. Toboggan will be a key element used by NBC Olympics to create a fully optimized and interoperable system for New Media production for the Beijing Olympics."
