February 26th, 2009 - With a year to go until the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, Canada’s Olympic Broadcast Media Consortium has launched CTVOlympics.ca and RDSolympiques.ca. It is the digital hub of English and French sports information on Vancouver 2010, and is the unquestioned Canadian Olympic online destination. Sites including TSN.ca, RDS.ca, Globeandmail.com, CTV.ca all throw links to CTVOlympics.ca and RDSolympiques.ca for any Olympic content.
Turin, Italy based company Deltatre is the company powering CTVOlympics.ca and RDSolympiques.ca. They have powered some of the biggest events on the planet with sites like: NBCOlympics.com, UEFA.com, and FIFA.com. Filemobile is powering the multimedia comments on CTVOlympics.ca and RDSolympiques.ca. Users can leave text, photo/video, or webcam comments on any news article or video. Deltatre integrated Filemobile's comment API, and the comment widget to power this experience. Winnipeg based moderation firm ICUC is moderating all of the content and using Media Factory to perform this service.
