The Visual Radio project, developed by Euroradio, consists of a live data slideshow showing live results and pictures of the event.
European Athletics’ partners Swiss Timing, the official timekeeping and data-handling company, and Getty Images, the official photo agency, will feed content to Euroradio during the championships (12 to 17 August).
This slideshow can be delivered on different platforms chosen, as needed, by participating broadcasters:
If broadcasters already have a visual radio flow and infrastructure, they can simply integrate the raw images into their existing workflow.
All these tools are available on the new EBU platform for exchange of software and services for broadcasting at http://tech.ebu.ch/io.
The source code is also available for further development or integration by broadcasters in their own infrastructure.
Finally, an English audio feed will be embedded with this visual production and made available worldwide via the Eurovision Sports LIVE App.
