SWISS TXT tests HELIOS at the 2019 Jungfrau Marathon

SWISS TXT is testing the EU research project HELIOS – developed with well-known partners from across Europe – at the Jungfrau Marathon in Interlaken on 7 September 2019.

Ultramarathon runner Gabi Schenkel is taking part in the Jungfrau Marathon for Levuro, a partner of SWISS TXT on the Helios project. Team members from SWISS TXT and editorial team members from SRF will accompany Gabi during the marathon and create continuous photo and video posts with the Helios mobile phone app. This content will be loaded via the SWISS TXT mediahub to the Helios video exchange platform. From there, publishers, media companies and event organisers can access the content and post it on their social media pages. The organiser of the Jungfrau Marathon will also publish this content on its own Social Wall.

In parallel, SWISS TXT is realising a use case at the Jungfrau Marathon for the  international IBC broadcast exhibition in Amsterdam, which will be presented on the  SWISS TXT Stand at the event.
