TAIPEI (Taiwan News)—As Taipei 2017 Summer Universiade is ready to go in less

Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) said the city will mobilize all available resources to broadcast the games in a scale the island has never seen, including 15 outside broadcasting vans, 5 production control systems, and 5,000 personnel. For example, motion-tracking technologies often used in the Olympics will for the first time be employed to cover track and field as well as swimming competitions of the Universiade. [FULL STORY]
