Panasonic, which has been supporting the Olympic Games for more than 25 years an Official Worldwide Partner, has begun installing state-of-the-art digital audio/video equipment at the Olympic venues in Sochi, ahead of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games.

The company is supplying a wide array of AV solutions to the Olympic venues, including LED Large Screen Display Systems, flat screen TVs, digital video cameras, DVD recorders and other professional audio/video equipment.

Panasonic’s technology plays a vital role in delivering the sights, sounds and unique excitement of the Olympic Games from the field of play to the spectators through its large on-site video screens and professional audio systems, and to people around the world through broadcasting with its digital broadcast equipment.

One of Panasonic’s LED Large Screen Display Systems has already been installed at the Iceberg Skating Palace, where figure skating events will be held during the Games, where it will showcase the expressions and performances of the athletes up close.

“The large screen has been delivered by Panasonic and it will be used for all events held during the Games,” explains Rushan Bogautdinov, Olympic Project Leader at Panasonic Russia. “Our team in Russia and the system integrators worked very closely to finish setting up the display. Cutting edge technology like this will help share the passion and excitement of the events held in the arena in a different way.”

Panasonic’s cutting-edge equipment has also been installed at venues in the Mountain Cluster, such as the Sanki Sliding Centre, where bobsleigh, skeleton and luge events will be held.

“Panasonic has delivered more than 200 devices to this venue, including security cameras, LED Large Screen Display Systems and professional TV systems,” explains Andrey Senik, Senior Engineer at Panasonic Russia. “Over 3,500 security cameras have also been installed at the various Olympic venues. They will provide unparalleled security during the Games.”

In the coming months, Panasonic will continue to support the Sochi 2014 Organising Committee through the installation and operation of cutting-edge AV solutions at each of the Olympic venues.
