Rio 2016 receives keys to International Broadcast Centre

The Rio 2016 Organising Committee took control of the International Broadcast Centre (IBC), the building from which images of the Olympic and Paralympic Games will be transmitted. In a ceremony at Barra Olympic Park, Rio mayor Eduardo Paes handed over the keys on behalf of the city government, which was responsible for the construction, to Rio 2016 president Carlos Nuzman.

The IBC comprises two buildings: the main building and the IBC offices, which will house Olympic Broadcasting Services (OBS), the responsible organization for delivering the pictures and sounds of the Olympic Games. Together, the two buildings occupy a total area of nearly 80,000m². The main building features 12 studios, each of approximately 5,000m².
