The OCOG and OBS bring broadcasters together

The second meeting of the broadcasters of the Paris 2024 Games was a great success. Organised mainly at the OCOG’s headquarters, the Pulse building in Saint-Denis, from 1 to 5 August 2023, the meeting brought together around 350 participants, including more than 220 holders of the Games’ audiovisual rights, representing 63 organisations. The meeting was also attended by representatives of the IOC, the IPC, the Organising Committees of Milan-Cortina 2026 and Los Angeles 2028, global Olympic partners Alibaba, Intel and Panasonic, and Paris 2024 technology partner Orange. At the helm are the OCOG and OBS (Olympic Broadcasting Services), the IOC subsidiary in charge of producing images for the Games. On the programme: a tour of the venues, including the International Broadcast Centre (IBC), and a series of presentations by OBS on its coverage of the Paris 2024 Games. It promises to be the most extensive coverage in history, with over 11,000 hours of production, highlighting not only the events but also the athletes’ journeys and behind-the-scenes stories.
