Denver-based Comcast Media Center (CMC) is now providing channel origination and transmission services for the 24-hour NHL Network. The NHL Network’s new facility at the CMC supports the network’s HD and SD broadcasts, including multiple live events. The new control room also features advanced graphics and live ticker capabilities.

“Through its affiliation with national and regional sports television networks, CMC already plays a major role in coordinating the delivery of NHL games from their local venues to TV homes across the United States and Canada,” said Peter Del Giacco, NHL chief technology officer, in a statement.

Live sports are one of the CMC’s specialties. The CMC currently originates more than 20,000 HD, SD, and 3D live and recorded events a year for its industry customers, including out-of-market pay-per-view sports packages, and the CMC recently managed more than 100 events in a single 24-hour period. Its live event capabilities include live commercial insertion, client graphic creation and manipulation, branding, facilitation between remote sites, one-on-one coverage and monitoring, and time-delayed and/or immediate replay of live media.
