by Press Office

Sport digital and broadcast services market leader deltatre marks its involvement with the 2013 IAAF World Championships with the provision of the Official Results and TV Graphics System, along with the Official IAAF app for smartphones and tablets.

The IAAF World Championships (August 10th-18th) represents the major sport event of the year, with record-breaking participation rates expected. More than 1900 athletes from 206 nations will delight fans at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, Russia, during the nine-day event.

deltatre digital and mobile innovative solutions are the best way to experience live sport events for fans all over the world. In Athletics, with events taking place during the whole day, from 9am to 10pm, the only way to fully experience the emotions and the passion, from the early morning qualifying heats and groups to the late night gold medal drama, is through the official IAAF app. Available for Apple iOs and Android devices, smartphones and tablets, the IAAF app includes in-depth real-time coverage from the stadium. The IAAF app is the must-have digital solution for every athletics fan anywhere in the world; it will become the reference source of information for World Athletics, as IAAF will employ it to cover all major events from now on.

The app is available from the Apple App Store, the Google Play Store and the Amazon App Store; it includes features such as:

• Events Schedule
• Official Results
• Real-time Results
• Flash quotes
• News, Photos and Videos
• Medals and records information
• Athletes Bios
• Customisable Medal Alerts
• Event Calendar syncronisation

deltatre’s involvement in Moscow goes beyond the mobile solution. Official results featured in the mobile app are gathered by a selected team of on-venue deltatre operators, who work in collaboration with SEIKO for timing and measurement collection. deltatre operators are on the field just a few meters away from the biggest athletics stars, ready to capture their performances in real-time.

deltatre’s results system also includes two other cutting-edge services. The TV Graphics System provides the overlay graphics to all broadcasters, enriching the amazing pictures coming from the Luznhiki Stadium. The Commentator Information System (CIS), manages and displays real-time data about athletes and competitions. It is the primary source of information for all journalists that comment on the event from the stadium tribune.

deltatre also provided the Voting System that powered the 49th IAAF Congress (August 7-8th) and managed the official voting procedures via a reliable centralised system.

Giampiero Rinaudo, delta CEO and Co-Founder, comments: “We have grown and enriched the services we offer the IAAF during our 20 years of involvement; particularly this year, we are thrilled to have expanded our mobile services with the official IAAF app and have made the 14th edition of the Championships available to everyone in the world.”

About IAAF:

On the 17 July 1912 in Stockholm, Sweden, following the closing ceremony of the Olympic Games in the Swedish capital, the International Amateur Athletic Federation (IAAF) was founded as the world governing body for the sport of track and field Athletics. The IAAF was founded to fulfil the need for a world governing authority, for a competition programme, for standardised technical equipment and for a list of official World records. All of these requirements remain today.
After 100 years of athletics excellence, the International Association of Athletics Federations is embarking on its second century with drive and determination. Athletics, a sport that was founded in antiquity, has continued to adapt through the centuries offering a dynamic, life enhancing sport which is ready for the exciting challenges of the next 100 years.
