Veteran announcer Todd Harris will anchor NBC Sports Group’s pre-race and post-race studio coverage on-site from Bermuda’s Great Sound during the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup Challenger Playoffs and the America’s Cup Match, presented by Louis Vuitton.

For the second consecutive time, NBC Sports Group will employ the Emmy Award-winning AC LiveLine graphics package to provide viewers real-time on-course information throughout the event.

Created by the same Emmy award-winning team that developed the yellow first-down line widely used in the broadcast of American football, this revolutionary graphics system enables embedded technical aids for viewers, such as ahead-behind lines so audiences can clearly see who is leading the race.

AC LiveLine won an Emmy Award for technical achievement in 2012. In addition, the live broadcasts of America’s Cup racing were nominated for the 2013 Emmy Awards and 2012 Royal Television Society Awards.
