In collaboration with Olympic Broadcasting Services (OBS), Alibaba‘s cloud solutions will be supporting service delivery for rights-holding broadcasters (RHBs) for the first time during the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. Built upon the platform provided by Alibaba Cloud, the digital technology and intelligence backbone of Alibaba Group and Worldwide TOP Partner, OBS Cloud offers new models for content delivery that drive operational efficiency and greater agility.
Between 7,000 and 9,000 short-form content clips are expected to be produced by the OBS Content+ crew to help enhance RHB coverage. 17 RHB organisations and four news agencies have subscribed to the full service of receiving those clips through a user-friendly web-based interface. The thousands of clips can be accessed by the RHBs’ digital and social media teams from any location in the world to supplement their own Olympic coverage.
