As the Rio Games draw to a close and the competing athletes pack up, leaving the Brazilian metropolis behind, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) is already hard at work laying the foundation for the future spectacle of Olympic games.
Throughout the Games, the IOC’s Olympic Games Knowledge Management program has been collecting data and compiling reports to share knowledge of the Games with future host cities.
The program, which was created to help prep the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games, has added an immersive and interactive video platform to its numerous management initiatives by collaborating with Teleport, a Swiss-based startup that launched a few months ago.
“We are always looking for ways to contextualize our content to make it more intuitive,” said Christopher Payne, Head of the Olympic Games Knowledge Management program. “The Teleport platform is an excellent way to do this as it positions content with an obvious visual reference that transcends language barriers.”
