Beijing Olympic 2008 goes Hi-Tech

Olympic 2008

Beijing Olympic 2008 will use latest cutting edge technology for athletes, visitors, surveillance and broadcasting. The whole event will be produced and broadcasted in high-definition television with support from Panasonic. Also the live broadcast will be available on internet and text alerts and video feeds are available for mobile users. Those who miss the action don’t have to wait for repeat telecast; they can easily watch it on online video sites like YouTube. The use of Wi-Fi and other wireless technologies has broadened the surveillance network. Also China will offer 3G services during Olympics, though it will be only for Beijing Organizing Committee for the Games (BOCOG) affiliated persons who got one of the 15,000 handsets of Samsung, which Samsung (one of the sponsor of the game) gave to BOCOG and so international 3G handset users will not be able to use their handsets in Beijing. The official web site of Beijing Olympic 2008 has an IPv6 version of the site.
