For Beijing ’22 Production, Planar’s The Pick For NBC Sports


The XXIV Olympic Winter Games have concluded, and among those that can look back in pride are the leaders of a Oregon-based company that’s emerged as a global leader in visualization technology.

Planar emerged as the company NBC Sports contracted to provide fine pitch LED video wall display technology for its production of Beijing 2022.

In particular, NBC Sports’ Beijing set showcased a Planar TVF Series LED video wall, with a 1.8mm pixel pitch that powered broadcast coverage from Studio A, with over 200 LED displays delivering more than 15 million pixels of resolution. NBC Sports used the video wall to achieve popular resolutions and deliver clear, crisp images from every angle and viewing distance.

Planar has been in use in prior Olympic Games.

“It’s a tremendous honor to partner with NBC Sports to return as its display technology
provider for this event,” Planar EVP Adam Schmidt said. “We’re excited to help enhance NBC Sports’ broadcast coverage for viewers.”
