Anton/Bauer will provide 24/7 access to products, repair, service and support to NBC Olympics, a division of the NBC Sports Group, for its production of the 2012 London Olympic Games from July 27 – August 12, 2012.
“Over the last 20 years, Anton/Bauer has increasingly provided equipment and support for NBC Olympics’ production of the Olympic Games,” said Michael Accardi, president, Anton/Bauer. “We are so proud to once again be a part of the production team helping capture the once-in-a-lifetime moments of this year’s London Games for viewers at home.”
“This year we’ll have our lighter-weight batteries available on site for broadcasters, as they are apt for powering high-current applications,” said Joe Teodosio, manager, global customer support, Anton/Bauer. “The DIONIC HCX and DIONIC HC both feature the RealTime display that indicates up to nine hours of run time (under low power-load conditions), ensuring high confidence when using the battery. Many of these events are over in a mere few seconds, so you don’t want to miss even one beat due to a power problem.”
In addition to providing gear, Anton/Bauer will be available in the International Broadcast Center (IBC), supplying NBC Olympics with on-call, 24/7 access to products, repair, service and support throughout the events.
“Anton/Bauer has been a valued partner, providing the latest battery and charging technologies, that keeps our ENG Crews in the field, shooting competition and Olympic participant interviews, which tell the stories of the Olympic Games. The Anton/Bauer support is also exceptional. Their technicians are always checking in with our crews to make sure the batteries and charging systems are performing up to their expectations. They are always ready to help solve any portable power requirements that may pop up during the 17 days of the Games.” said Chip Adams, vice president, venue engineering, NBC Olympics.
