Cross-platform coverage of Vancouver Olympics nets Outstanding Digital Media award

by Knowlton Thomas

A record seven Gemini Awards were handed to Canada’s Olympic Broadcast Media Consortium in recognition of its "revolutionary cross-platform coverage of Vancouver 2010."

Most notably was Outstanding Technical Achievement in Digital Media, presented to Alon Marcovici, vice president of digital media and research for Canada's Olympic Broadcast Media Consortium, and his digital team for "breaking new ground with their unprecedented digital media coverage and consumer access to broadcast, live event and original content." 

“It takes a dedicated team across all departments to produce an event of this magnitude. We were 1,400 strong in Vancouver, with each and every member of our group contributing to a new standard for Olympic Games coverage. We are both humbled and proud to receive this recognition,” said Adam Ashton, president of Canada’s Olympic Broadcast Media Consortium. “It was a responsibility and our privilege to share the athletes’ stories to all Canadians, and we look forward to doing it all again at London 2012.”
