Opening Ceremony of Paris Olympics to be Streamed via Smartphones

Next week, on June 26th, Paris will host the opening ceremony of the 2024 Summer Olympics. As one of the event’s sponsors, Samsung has provided two hundred of its smartphones to stream this grand occasion.

According to available information, 200 Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra flagship smartphones, valued at just under $260,000, will be installed on the bow and stern of 85 boats. These boats will carry 10,500 athletes through the city along the Seine River. The smartphones will broadcast the event in 4K resolution with HDR through the 5G network of Orange, another sponsor of the Olympics. To support this, Orange has set up more than a dozen 5G antennas along the Seine’s banks, following the athletes’ route.

This innovative approach to streaming showcases the capabilities of modern smartphones and the power of 5G technology, providing a unique viewing experience for audiences around the world, including in the USA. It’s a reminder of how technology is revolutionizing the way we experience major events.

Notably, the medals for the winners of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics were made from recycled smartphones and other gadgets, highlighting a growing trend of incorporating advanced technology and sustainability into global events.
