Israel is known as the “startup nation” for a reason! During this year’s 2016 Summer Games, Israeli innovators bring their expertise to help in areas as diverse as security, live video streaming, transportation, and more.

Israel’s representation in Rio de Janeiro extends beyond the sporting contests to the tech arena where startups will show their prowess in security technologies, live video transmission technology, public transportation navigation, AR systems, satellite technologies and sports tech.

[For example,] Israeli company LiveU‘s IP-based, award-winning live video transmission solutions will help more than 80 international broadcasters deliver all the live action of the Olympic and Paralympic Games to their audiences. LiveU also provided this service for the FIFA World Cup 2014.
