The International Broadcast Center (IBC)

The International Broadcast Center (IBC) is the heart of the Olympic broadcast operations and the headquarters for the world broadcasters.

It is one of the key non-competition venues of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games and, together with the MPC, one of the first to be fully operational during the Games.

The IBC for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, with a usable space of 90,000 square meters, will be located in the newly-built National Convention Centre within the Beijing Olympic Green. To the west are the Main Press Centre (MPC) and two media hotels. Located in the same complex and to the south of the IBC is the Fencing Hall.

The IBC will offer easy access to Rights Holding Broadcasters (RHBs) to multiple sporting venues within the Beijing Olympic Green, including the National Stadium and the National Aquatics Centre.

The IBC will contain studios and production facilities for the Beijing Olympic Broadcasting(BOB), host broadcaster of the 2008 Games as well as Rights Holding Broadcasters(RHBs) and will operate 24 hours a day.

BOCOG is scheduled to hand over the IBC to BOB for the internal fit-out in August 2007.
