With IoT, the experience of sporting events becomes multidimensional, which increases its impact tenfold. For the broadcast to be captivating, both images and information must be retransmitted with the lowest latency possible and offer real-time experience.
Euromedia objective is to develop its core activity of capturing events by relying on a real-time and live tracking system for professional cycling races. The intention is to enrich the live narration of the event during the multi-media and multi-media broadcast of the races (mobile applications, website, audiovisual media …) to keep the audience in suspense with data on the routes, movements, trajectories and performance of runners.
The objective is to provide the audience with every moment of the event, in every detail, in all its dimensions, in real time.
