Live reporting and 24/7 support that sets a gold standard for the world of athletics

Challenge

Deliver a live event platform, provide 24/7 technical support and hosting at live World Athletics events around the world.

Solution

We have built an innovative and lightning-fast Commentator Information Service – WebCIS – giving broadcasters all the stats they need at events. This bespoke service has been used for three European Championship events and at the Tokyo Olympics by commentators from global broadcast networks to enable them to give fans the most engaging and accurate commentary possible. At the Olympics, WebCIS processed and displayed the data so fast it was available to commentators even before the results were shown in the stadium itself.
