Panasonic’s Vision

There have always been developments in audiovisual technology throughout the history of the Olympic Games. In 1964, satellite broadcasting arrived in time for the Tokyo Games, a first in Olympic history. Digital VTR was introduced for the Barcelona 1992 Games and high-definition (HD) became the main video format in Beijing 2008.

And now, Panasonic has proposed a totally new dimension: Full HD 3D.

Panasonic has been contribute to the success of the Olympic Games through its technology for more than two decades, since The Olympic Partner Programme was launched for the Calgary Olympic Winter Games in 1988.

TO demonstrate its cutting edge technology, Panasonic has established a 700sqm corporate pavilion at the official live site, located in David Lam Park in Vancouver during the Games time. Panasonic’s world-first ‘Full HD 3D Plasma Home Theater System’, which enables the viewing of true-to-life Olympic and variety of entertainment 3D images by distributing full high-definition images to both eyes, will provide Olympic athletes, spectators and fans a unique experience as if they are living in the stadium, and propose a future lifestyle of viewing Olympic Games at homes around the world.

Panasonic provides the Olympic Games with state-of-the-art audio/visual equipment, such as LED large screen display systems, professional audio systems, flat screen TVs, digital video cameras, DVD recorders, and broadcast equipment.

Panasonic has committed its partnership with the International Olympic Committee until the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
