Through cooperation with the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), the Olympic Organising Committee for the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games (RIO 2016), and the Olympic Broadcasting Services (OBS), Panasonic supplies its visual equipment to the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, Competition Venues and broadcasting locations.

Panasonic has been contributing to the Games with its AV technology for more than 25 years now. In Rio 2016, Panasonic signed its partnership with the organiser to become an ‘Official Ceremony Partner’ to provide a turn-key visual solution from system design to projection mapping operation in the Olympic and Paralympic Games Ceremonies project. Panasonic will supply around 110 units of its compact 20,000 lumens projectors (PT-DZ21K2), 2-M/E Live Switcher (AV-HS6000 Series), and other full line-up visual systems to deliver impressive images to the Ceremonies’ spectators at Brazil’s iconic Maracana Stadium, and the audiences around the globe.

Panasonic will also install its LED video screens and video systems to the Competition Venues on the largest scale for any Olympic Games in the company’s history.

Panasonic’s P2HD broadcast camera system has already been decided upon as the recording equipment for Rio 2016. The company will deliver large numbers of broadcasting equipment such as the AJ-PX5000G camera recorder featuring AVC-ULTRA codecs. Since the Barcelona 1992 Olympic Games, Rio 2016 will be the 12th consecutive Olympic Games in which Panasonic’s digital technology will be used as the official recording format.
