NBC's coverage of the first night of Olympic competition from PyeongChang, South Korea, generated Total Audience Delivery of 17.2 million, down 14% from the 20 million who watched the games four years ago in Sochi, Russia.
The streams will go live on NBC'sSnapchat Discover channel and will run for up to six minutes apiece.
FileCatalyst technology will move data over a 5 Gbps link between NBC Olympics' headquarters in Stamford, Conn., and the NBC Olympics compound at the International Broadcast Center in PyeongChang. Ericsson will assist with the equipment and system set up, and will also be on site to provide multi-site support throughout the event. The files will consist of both high- and low- resolution videos. Archived footage will also be moved from Stamford to Pyeongchang, as required for editorial purposes. The setup also includes FileCatalyst Central to monitor and administer the deployment, and FileCatalyst Direct server and client applications.

The new Live feature will deliver key Olympic moments in real time.
"We are excited to once again be an important part of the production workflow for such a large sporting event", said Chris Bailey.
