Welcoming Winter Olympics in a digital age

Emerging technologies are expected to be crucial players in preparation of the upcoming 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, as they expand their role in building a more livable environment that is friendly to industry and urban communities.

Nearly all preparations for the Games are centered on the deployment and designs of the venues. Therefore, a simulation system that turns two-dimensional venue data into dynamic and parameterized three-dimensional data has become essential to show progress of the preparations.

For example, Beijing Olympic Broadcasting Co., Ltd. was investigating different camera stands even before the outbreak of COVID-19.

During the pandemic, although traveling was limited, the company completed remote investigation and selected camera stands using mobile terminals through the local and cloud 3D data of the venue.

The cloud and remote control technology realizes online broadcasting, which lowers expenditure in broadcasting vehicles and other devices.

The virtual reality technology will provide the audience with an interactive and multi-dimensional viewing experience.

What's more, a Winter Olympics-themed smart phone application is now under development, which is expected to meet all demands of foreign visitors to the event and to evolve into a tool that serves all visitors to the city in the future.

It's worth mentioning that during the event, a real-time connection will be realized between the chest CT cabins and the hospitals. Medical teams and equipment will be prepared before the patient arrives at the hospital, which saves time for treatment.

Chang Yu, director of the media and communication department of the Beijing Organizing Committee for the 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, said that the committee hopes that innovative technologies and modes rooted in the event will lead to digital development in Beijing and benefit everyone living in the city in the digital age.
