I still think the image we see is green screened or blue screened in. There is no way with all the lights they have in that studio that they managed to no get an reflections from it regardless of the camera angle. The emitted light from it also doesn't seem to light up anything else around it.

I bet it's not. Look at the direction it's pointing. Considering that the "camera side" of the studio is probably pretty close to pitch black, it's entirely possible to have it in the studio like that and exhibit very little reflection.

I was wondering how NBC managed to get both Sony and Panasonic signed to product placement deals ON THE SAME SET! Well done by NBC!

That's usually true, but over the weekend there were a couple of studio shots of the panasonics with the panasonic logo showing. Maybe it was a mistake because I haven't seen it again since even though those sets have been used since.

In the shots where the gymnastics dude (karolyi) is talking to Bob Costas, you can sometimes see the panasonic logo. I think they may have a 100"er :O... (may be my eyes. It might be a "lowly" 65 incher)

What is dead can never die. Long live my 151!

you know now that i look more closely at the sonys, they are plasma as well arent they?!

I actually didnt think Sony still made plasmas so i discounted it, but after recently browsing mountavision and noticing they sold Sony plasmas they educated me on the fact that they actually do still make commercial models (ahem, like the kind used in a television studio).

so i think it's actually Paanasonic Plasmas and Sony plasmas...

The box my Panasonic came in says "Official Worldwide Olympic Sponsor".

I'm guessing the name blackout has more to do with TV contracts and not the Olympics themselves.
