July 21, 2008 - The Seagate Barracuda ES Series was selected for the Omneon MediaDeck media servers and MediaGrid active storage systems that will enable NBC’s coverage of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.


The media servers and storage systems will allow NBC to produce 3,600 hours of coverage during the Beijing Olympic Games - a three-fold increase over the coverage during the 2004 Athens Olympic Games.


“NBC needs to capture every second of every competition at multiple venues in China, quickly turning them into dynamic programming for television and Internet broadcasting - nothing can fall through the cracks,” said Bill Schilling, marketing director at Seagate. “We welcomed the opportunity to work with Omneon to support NBC for its Olympics coverage. Omneon is the market leader for developing storage solutions for broadcast video, which is becoming more prevalent via the Web, especially for hugely popular sporting events like the Olympics.”
