Canon and Associated Press Collaborated at 2016 Olympics

Canon and Associated Press were well prepared to cover the 2016 Olympics in Rio. They spent a month before the Games to install almost 35 miles of cables, remote camera and robotic systems to photograph all the sporting events. The remote and robotic cameras are strategically located to cover all angles : above in the rafters, below in the water, and closeup at the side of the tracks.

Photographs collected from these systems and sports photographers are beamed to a team of sixteen photo editors. They process something like 3,500 photos a day and select a few for distribution.
