The International Broadcast Centre for the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 delivered

Construction work on the building shell is now complete at the International Broadcast Centre (IBC), the home of the broadcast operation for the 2018 Olympic Winter Games. The PyeongChang 2018 Organising Committee (POCOG) officially handed over the facility to Olympic Broadcasting Services (OBS) on 5 June 2017.

Located in the heart of the Mountain Cluster in the Alpensia resort, the IBC will serve as the primary base of operations for OBS and the Rights Holding Broadcasters (RHBs). From here, nearly 4,000 hours of images will be transmitted across the world, showcasing the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games to billions of viewers. During the 17 days of the Games, the IBC will become the busiest sports broadcast hub in the world, providing facilities and services to approximately 6,000 broadcast personnel. It will be operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week, guaranteeing that every moment of the action can be seen throughout the world. With a total area of 51,024 square metres, the IBC is one of the largest venues of the 2018 Games. Construction works began in December 2015 and took approximately 17 months to be completed.
