NBCUniversal Boston Media Center

Combining Two Locations & Four Properties into a Single Facility – All Built on SMPTE ST 2110 Standards

When NBCUniversal wanted to update and combine their Boston locations, they engaged Diversified’s team of industry experts to help design and deliver a new facility all built on SMPTE ST 2110 Standards that would enable them to adapt to the future and grow with the industry. With a strict timeline and four properties to go live in the new 160,000 square-foot building, there was no margin for error.

Built entirely on SMPTE ST 2110 standard, the facility is completely engineeredwith a focus on IP and collaboration. The four business units, NBC Boston, NBC Sports Boston, Telemundo Boston and New England Cable News, are supported by five production control rooms, a 12-seat Media Operations Center and a 14-seat assignment desk. With Evertz EXE routing at the core of the facility, it’s additionally outfitted with Ross Acuity switchers, Harmonic play-out and record server channels, 44 live processing paths, SSL System T audio packages and an RTS ODIN Intercom. Ross Xpression is used for news graphics while ChyronHego is used for sports content.

Each of the six studios features a Sony cameras on Ross CamBot pedestals with CueScript prompters. Even the break room is designed to be camera ready if needed. Outside of the studios, the 265-desk newsroom offers NBC a new level of collaboration.

With so many manufacturers contributing to the project, the Diversified team not only managed their own scope but also provided management and coordination services on behalf of the client to support the dozens of vendors working on-site during the extended commissioning process.

Leveraging Diversified’s comprehensive portfolio of services, the team also provided the architectural coordination, structured cabling design and installation, and AV collaboration spaces for the entire facility—including 20 conference rooms and huddle spaces. In total, the facility contains more than 1.5 million feet of cable, 19,000+ connectors, 5 satellite dishes and 595 drawings.
