Euro 2012: IBC officially opened


The Euro 2012 International Broadcast Centre in Warsaw was officially opened by UEFA president Michel Platini on Wednesday.

It will act as the heartbeat for all broadcast operations at UEFA’s flagship international tournament which begins on Friday.

It will be operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to ensure the millions of spectators can catch every second of the action.

Covering some 14,000 square metres of floor space over four halls, the IBC, which took just over two months to build, is around 30% larger than the one used for Euro 2008 and includes TV studios, edit suites, production areas, shops and restaurants.

Every story can be told in many ways: see the perspectives from Euronews journalists in our other language teams.
