OMEGA Olympic Games in Sochi


OMEGA Olympic Games in SochiThe Olympic win­ter games of 2014 cer­e­mony were cel­e­brated in Sochi on Feb­ru­ary 7. The omega clocks in this grand open­ing were spread all over the Russ­ian ter­ri­tory and these open­ing events were fin­ished within a few days. The Omega is now ready to rule with its cos­tume and offi­cial time­keeper for almost twenty sixth times. Since 1936, Omega started as a very first win­ter games of Olympic in Garmisch-Partenkirchen in Ger­many. There was a tech­ni­cian who was account­able for pro­vid­ing twenty seven OMEGA watches among all the events. This brand is expand­ing its tra­di­tion of mod­ernism. The Omega is intro­duc­ing and devel­op­ing extremely sophis­ti­cated and lat­est tech­nolo­gies in the sports world for time­keep­ing. The pres­ence of Omega is hardly unno­ticed even at win­ter games of Olympic 2014.

260 on-site prac­ti­tion­ers, backed by 170 peo­ple spe­cially qual­i­fied vol­un­teers sup­ported 230 tons of appa­ra­tus that included almost thirty pub­lic bill­boards. Along with a deci­sively anchored world of sports civ­i­liza­tion, OMEGA is announc­ing this with great please that it is par­tic­i­pat­ing in new Olympic and in Par­a­lympic Games that include great­est ath­letes of the world who com­pete for gold. As an Offi­cial Time­keeper, the brand OMEGA is work­ing with the IOC sports foun­da­tions as well as with the ath­letes for ensur­ing that the tech­nolo­gies of time­keep­ing could decide the sit­u­a­tions that are unde­cided accord­ing to the Olympic spirit.


On the events of win­ter games of Olympic 2014 held in Sochi, the offi­cial time­keeper, Omega is boast­ing over hun­dred years expe­ri­ence of inter­na­tional sports events as well as the Olympic legacy that are being arranged since 1932. The tim­ing and treat­ment of the teams of Omega will be build by exper­tise gar­nered for almost 25 edi­tions of skills of ath­letes of Olympics that are hav­ing brands that have unri­valed rep­u­ta­tion of sports time­keep­ing games. Below is a demon­stra­tion of mainly impor­tant Olympic Games of OMEGA in 1932. Such an edi­tion was land­mark in the sports his­tory time­keep­ing. Omega is the admin­is­tra­tor time­keeper of Olympic Games held in Los Ange­les that pro­vide 30 high accu­racy chrono­graphs which ben­e­fit all the chronome­ter doc­u­men­ta­tion issued by COSC in Neuchâ­tel. Such a cer­tifi­cate of accu­rate­ness plays an impor­tant role in final choice of IOC. The offi­cial results are expressed in short duration.


The Omega scope is allow­ing the intro­duc­tion and con­cept of time real­ity in the sports that broad­cast through the inlay bright num­bers at the bot­tom of the screen. A rev­o­lu­tion in tim­ing that leaves no mar­gin of error to the amount the infor­ma­tion is shared with mil­lions view­ers. This instru­ment was used dur­ing the Win­ter Games in Inns­bruck in 1964, which was the first fully elec­tronic pub­lish­ing. Never before have peo­ple not present at the place of com­pe­ti­tion could not be informed as soon results. Results and arith­meti­cal ana­lyzes are deliv­ered to judges, coaches, media, and to pub­lic. The birth of the photo printer helps in the dis­tri­b­u­tion of results faster than ever. All these ele­ments mark a turn­ing point for OMEGA and these are enter­ing in the era of mod­ern time­keep­ing. On the occa­sion of the Olympic Games of Win­ter 1992 Albertville, test speed skat­ing has the Omega Sys­tem Scan-O-Vision, which makes dig­i­tal mea­sure­ments with mil­lisec­ond when cross­ing the fin­ish line. This device enables shoot­ing time by syn­the­siz­ing the times and the image con­tin­ues in a sin­gle doc­u­ment. A new chap­ter opens for the sci­ence of time­keep­ing. 2006 At the Win­ter Games in Turin in 2006, transpon­ders are attached to the ankles of speed skaters to allow offi­cials to mea­sure sud­den accel­er­a­tion, the speed reached in turns hair­pin or from falls caused by con­tact. 2010 The great tech­no­log­i­cal first Win­ter Olympics in Van­cou­ver was the new elec­tronic start­ing sys­tem. One of the most iconic objects of the Olympic Games is unques­tion­ably the starter pis­tol evok­ing wor­thy revolvers famous west­erns. But in Van­cou­ver, this acces­sory is replaced by a futur­is­tic and aero­dy­namic device con­sist­ing of a flash gun cou­pled with a sound gen­er­a­tor. When the starter pulls the trig­ger, this causes three simul­ta­ne­ous events: the emis­sion of a sound, pro­ject­ing a ray of light and the onset of the tim­ing sys­tem. It is pos­si­ble to change the sounds and down­load computer.


Unit of mea­sure: Speed ​​and accel­er­a­tion bob­sleigh   OMEGA usher in Sochi tech­nol­ogy to pro­vide instant com­peti­tors, their team and view­ers world­wide crit­i­cal data dur­ing bob­sled races. This infor­ma­tion will be col­lected through a mea­sure­ment unit mounted on each OMEGA bob­sleigh. This inno­v­a­tive device con­sists of a speed sen­sor, a sen­sor 3D accel­er­a­tion and 3D gyro sen­sor all that trans­mit data in real time. Speed sen­sor records the speed of the bob on the entire jour­ney. 3D gyro sen­sor con­tin­u­ously deter­mines the angu­lar veloc­ity of the bob. The angu­lar veloc­ity mea­sures the speed of the bob in the gal­leries, usu­ally expressed in rev­o­lu­tions per unit of time. The direc­tion of the angu­lar veloc­ity vec­tor is orthog­o­nal to the plane of rota­tion. 3D accel­er­a­tion sen­sor pro­vides con­tin­u­ously eval­u­ate the forces exerted on the dri­ver dur­ing the course, each mea­sur­ing a dif­fer­ent para­me­ter axis. OMEGA is the unit of mea­sure­ment is a valu­able aid for bob­sled­ders and their team. It gives them access to instant data that allow them to adapt and opti­mize their train­ing pro­grams accord­ingly Devel­op­ment Phase   Devel­op­ment of the mea­sur­ing unit OMEGA that began in Octo­ber 2011, pre­sented chal­lenges pre­dom­i­nantly that were interesting.The OMEGA Sochi Petrograd

On the one hand, the data should be suf­fi­ciently com­pre­hen­sive to pro­vide depth to coaches and tech­ni­cians after rac­ing analy­sis. On the other hand, it appeared nec­es­sary to ensure wire­less trans­mis­sion com­bined with a sim­ple and effec­tive treat­ment of data to ensure the real-time dis­play of infor­ma­tion almost instan­ta­neously. Devel­op­ment of this device was ini­tially per­formed in part of the cir­cuit Monobob Omega Series cham­pi­onship bob car launched by the brand. The con­fig­u­ra­tion of these small cars bobs has per­fected this tech­nol­ogy very quickly. A rel­a­tively sim­ple pro­to­type has been assem­bled. At this stage of the design, the engi­neers had left out cer­tain func­tions such as the wire­less trans­mis­sion, which would prove cru­cial later. The sen­sor data was to be con­nected to a mini-board com­puter in the recessed frame bob. Nat­u­rally, the pro­to­type was so heavy and bulky, but the three sen­sors work­ing prop­erly. In early 2012, a first video clip was avail­able, con­sist­ing of shoot­ing live asso­ci­ated with inte­grated graph­ics over­lay after the race from the syn­chro­nized data gen­er­ated by the sen­sors.   Much of 2012 was devoted to the improv­ing the sys­tem of wire­less trans­mis­sion. After months of eval­u­a­tion fol­lowed by a remod­el­ing of the pro­to­type unit was ready for an inten­sive test phase at the edge of the 2012/2013 sea­son. It quickly became appar­ent that most of the orig­i­nal objec­tives were met, includ­ing the trans­mis­sion of live data and over­lay infor­ma­tion from mul­ti­ple bobs on TV screens. Hav­ing fully meets the test­ing phases, the unit OMEGA mea­sure­ment is ready to add another bit of adren­a­line in bob­sleigh at the Olympic Win­ter Games in Sochi 2014. On the fin­ish line, it was replaced by a pho­to­elec­tric cell ultra-sensitive instantly stop the chrono­graph, while an elec­tric cur­rent ultra fast ended incon­sis­ten­cies due to time vary­ing reac­tion time­keep­ers. Dur­ing sprints and races with group arrived, it was some­times dif­fi­cult to dis­tin­guish each ath­lete adjuncts had to be used in addi­tion pho­to­cells. Pho­to­elec­tric cells placed at the fin­ish line were much more pow­er­ful than all the devices used so far and even­tu­ally sup­plant the tra­di­tional rib­bon. Since the Van­cou­ver Win­ter Olympic Games 2010, the photo-finish cam­era OMEGA used to estab­lish the final lap when rac­ing com­peti­tors. Dur­ing skat­ing speed, the times stop simul­ta­ne­ously on bill­boards and graph­ics over­lay TV screens at the moment one of the pads of the ath­lete crosses the fin­ish line. But finally, the offi­cial result is recorded by the photo-finish cam­era time. The woman still man­aged to extend his leg so that the tip of his shoe could cross the line with suf­fi­cient lap to win the race pho­to­cells. There are two pho­to­cells at the end of the run­way, arranged at dif­fer­ent heights to ensure their release by the skates or skis ath­lete and not other parts of the body. For accu­rate results, the two pho­to­cells must trig­ger in order to estab­lish and record the run­ning time. There are key ele­ments to estab­lish the results in a track event. OMEGA used pho­to­elec­tric cell for the first time at the Sum­mer Games in Lon­don 1948. The photo-finish cam­era slot, devel­oped by the British com­pany Race Fin­ish Record­ing Com­pany and now ubiq­ui­tous, also made ​​its debut at the Olympic Games. This pho­to­cell was able to deter­mine exactly when run­ners crossed the fin­ish line. How­ever, in a test like run­ning 100 meters, the ath­letes were so tight on the fin­ish line it was impos­si­ble to deter­mine the order of fin­ish with­out a shadow of a doubt. The photo-finish cam­era recorded an image that could be devel­oped in about eight min­utes, thus remov­ing any doubt on the podium con­tenders. More than sixty years after the intro­duc­tion of these rev­o­lu­tion­ary tech­nolo­gies, devices that suc­ceeded them remain essen­tial in the field of sports time­keep­ing. The com­bined use of the pho­to­elec­tric images and photo-finish cell has for­ever changed the way time sport­ing events. Transpon­ders In sports such as biathlon, speed skat­ing or snow­board cross, very light and transpon­ders dis­crete two legs are attached to each com­peti­tor to allow OMEGA to mea­sure, store and dis­play time and inter­me­di­ate clas­si­fi­ca­tions of ath­letes and teams dur­ing the course of the race. Start­ing gate Snow­gate In Sochi, Skiers will start from a start­ing gate by the name of Snow­gate. With this tech­nol­ogy, the clock starts when the wand door is exactly the same angle for each com­peti­tor. The con­trol box is con­nected to the gate has a sys­tem recov­ery in case of unex­pected malfunction.
