Media Operations

Paris 2012 will provide the host broadcaster, rights-holders, press and photographers with excellent facilities, transport and accommodation. The conveniently located IBC and MPC will assist the media to provide the best possible Games coverage.

Putting France’s Experience and Know-How to Work for the Games
Through such events as the 1992 Olympic Winter Games in Albertville, the 1998 World Cup, the IAAF World Championships (2003), and Roland Garros ("French  Open"), France has built up considerable know-how in managing international media and deploying the latest technologies (live broadcasts, etc.), all of which will be applied in 2012. Its know-how and experience will allow the international media and the Olympic Radio-Television Organisation (ORTO) to offer audio-visual, written and photographic coverage of the highest quality.
The Media: Experiencing the Event Where It Happens
The International Broadcast Centre (IBC) and Main Press Centre (MPC) are both located in the immediate vicinity of the Olympic Stadium and Aquatic Centre, in the Northern Cluster, also home to more than 50% of the events.
Venue Accessibility: A Necessary Condition Already Provided For
The location of the IBC/MPC allows the media quick access to the Olympic Lanes and extremely short travel times to the competition venues. All Northern Cluster venues will be easily accessible from the IBC/MPC through the internal transport lane.
Flexibility and Rapidity: Two Priorities for Media Transport
Paris 2012 has built up an effective media transport system based on:
• A shuttle service with access to the Olympic Lanes and reduced-traffic lanes, to be run from two interconnection stations, in the Northern Cluster and in the Western Cluster.
• Reserved parking lots at all competition venues for media accredited vehicles.
• Free public transport for accredited media.
