In Sailing, a lot of the technology is for the benefit of both the athletes and the spectators watching from the shoreline. The race begins with Omega´s countdown which is shown on large scoreboards so that athletes can track the time until the start of a race. After this, Omega provides virtual animations and the virtual starting line to help spectators follow the action. In Rio, a special camera has been placed on the top of Sugarloaf to help create the virtual graphics. Together with GPS tracking on the boats, Omega is able to provide a lot of these positioning animations for the benefit of viewers.
