Panasonic goes big for Olympics

Panasonic is to deliver the largest supply of its audiovisual equipment for any Olympic Games in the company's history for the upcoming London 2012 Olympics, Projector Point says.

The company is equipping the Olympic Park, in East London, with a full complement of its high-end audiovisual equipment, including projectors, projector screens and high-definition LED large-screen display systems.

PCR Online notes that Panasonic will provide strong support for the operation of the world's largest sporting event, at sporting venues, broadcasting sites and homes.

The Japanese company will also bring the first-ever 3D Olympic Games to homes, based on the 3D technical partnership with the IOC and the Olympic Broadcasting Services.

Panasonic has also developed a completely new projector, specifically for use during the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2012 games, IT Pro Portal states.

The PT-DZ21K projectors use 3-Chip DLP technology and pump out an impressively bright 200 000 lumens image, while consuming a relatively conservative 2 300 watts of power.

Panasonic will also be supplying all the equipment to capture, process, edit and transmit every frame of video from the events.
