Photo Gallery: NBC Olympics At-Home Operation in Stamford, CT
The Rio 2016 Games mark NBC Olympics’ largest “at-home” operation to date, with more than 1,100 people supporting the production from its Sports Production Operations Center (SPOC) in Stamford, CT. Although the Peacock used an at-home production model at 30 Rock in New York for the 2008 Beijing and 2012 London Olympics (and, to lesser extent, for the 1996 Atlanta Games), the Rio 2016 operation is roughly 50% larger than those 30 Rock efforts and is the first based in NBC Sports’ state-of-the-art Stamford, CT, facility, which opened in summer 2013.
