IAAF World Championships apps delivered by deltatre

Official smartphone and tablet apps for The 2013 IAAF World Championships, which takes place this week (10-18 August), will be provided by deltatre. The company will supply the Official Results and TV Graphics System, along with the Official IAAF app. The current IAAF World Championships involves more than 1,900 athletes from 206 nations, and is taking place at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, Russia.

The app is available for Apple iOs and Android devices, smartphones and tablets, and includes realtime coverage from the stadium. From now on, the IAAF will employ the app to cover all major events. The app is available from the Apple App Store, the Google Play Store and the Amazon App Store, and features include events schedules, official results, and news, photo and video.

Giampiero Rinaudo (pictured), deltatre CEO and co-founder, commented: “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.”

Official results featured in the app are gathered by a team of on-venue deltatre operators, who work in collaboration with SEIKO for timing and measurement collection.

deltatre’s TV Graphics System provides the overlay graphics to all broadcasters, and its Commentator Information System (CIS) manages and displays realtime data about athletes and competitions.

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