Sochi venues get state-of-the-art equipment

As Sochi continues to prepare for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games, Panasonic has begun installing state-of-the-art digital audio/video equipment at the Olympic venues.

The AV solutions being supplied include large screen LED display systems, flatscreen TVs, digital video cameras, DVD recorders and other professional audio/video equipment.

The technology will play a vital role in delivering the excitement of the Olympic Games: from the field of play to spectators through its large on-site video screens and professional audio systems, and to viewers around the world through broadcasting with its digital broadcast equipment.

One large screen LED display systems has already been installed at the Iceberg Skating Palace, where figure skating events will be held during the Games.

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, large screen LED 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.
