Previously, Alibaba signed a long-term partnership with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 2017 as an e-commerce platform service partner and official cloud service provider for the Olympics until 2028.

Subsequently, ‘OBS Cloud’, which Alibaba Cloud launched together with Olympic Broadcasting Service (OBS) in 2018, is a broadcasting solution in which the broadcasting content production and transmission mechanism are operated entirely in the cloud.

OBS Cloud supported the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and the 2022 Beijing Olympics.

Center Director Jang said, “Before the introduction of OBS Cloud (Live Cloud), global live video transmission required expensive international communication optical lines and time-consuming on-site installation,” adding, “Now, Alibaba Cloud’s scalable and secure infrastructure “Through this, it has become possible to quickly install and transmit high-quality live content at a reasonable price,” he explained.

In addition, at the request of the competition organizing committee, Alibaba Cloud also established a dedicated portal to manage more than 5,000 staff and volunteers and a ticket reservation system that can support more than 460,000 visitors during the competition period.

Center Director Jang emphasized, “Alibaba Cloud’s technology will improve the operational efficiency of the Games and provide a highly immersive Olympic experience.”

The Gangwon Winter Youth Olympics will be held in Gangneung, Pyeongchang, Jeongseon, and Hoengseong in Gangwon-do for 14 days from the 19th to the 1st of next month.

This is the 4th competition held for the first time in Asia and is the largest ever with over 1,900 athletes from 81 countries participating. 슬롯사이트
