This includes the Commentator Information System delivering real-time competition results and athlete information and Info+ providing information to media, athletes, judges, coaches and sponsors.
Commentator Information System (CIS)
One of the technology improvements for London 2012 was that, for the first time ever in the Summer Games, all 26 Olympic sports and 5 of the Paralympic sports were added to the Commentator Information System (CIS). Managed, centrally from the Technology Operations Centre, the Commentator Information System provides commentators and journalists with touch-screen technology that gives results in real time, so quick they can see the results before they hear the roar of the crowd. It was also the first time that broadcasters, both in the host city and their home countries, had access to the system for all Olympic and 5 Paralympic sports.
myInfo+ was available for the very first time at London 2012. The new internet application enabled accredited media, sports officials and athletes to access information available to them. Competition schedules, medal ranking tables, transport news and sports records, were all be available via their laptops with users able to tailor their homepage so that it highlighted the countries that they wanted to follow during the Games.
The system also allows users to bookmark results and reports and use the hyperlinks to easily navigate to other websites including those of the International Olympic Committee and London 2012.
