VOV.VN - Both the Media Press Center (MPC) and the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) for the upcoming 31st Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games 31) officially debuted in Hanoi on May 9.
The MPC comes up to international standards with a room spanning 600 square metres and high-speed internet connection provided by Vietnam Posts and Telecommunications Group (VNPT).
It is capable of serving up to 200 reporters and is fully equipped with screens, computers, and power sources which can be used to assist journalists when watching live sports competitions.
Meanwhile, the International Television Center (IBC) is also the place where live broadcasts are made, with support from Vietnam Television (VTV) and partner television stations.
Most notably, studio and operating booths for television channels from Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, and Philippines at the IBC have all met strict standards in terms of space, temperature, and sound insulation to support reporters at work.
Addressing the inauguration ceremony, Deputy Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Hoang Dao Cuong expected that the inauguration of the well-equipped MPC and IBC would support domestic and international reporters in meeting their tasks for the success of the region’s largest sporting event.
SEA Games 31, which will take place from May 12 to May 23, will see roughly 3,000 domestic and foreign journalists reporting on the event.
