Panasonic gears up for central role at Paris Olympics and Paralympics

Deployments include large LED screens and 130 laser projectors, for the Olympics (Jul 26 to Aug 11), and Paralympic Games (Aug 28 to Sep 8)

Panasonic Connect will supply AV solutions, including professional displays, broadcast production equipment and projection systems, for the Olympic Games Paris 2024 to be held in France from July 26 to August 11, and the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games, scheduled from August 28 to September 8. The deployments include large LED screens for almost all 26 competitive venues, 130 laser projectors, and remote cameras for the 29 press rooms.

Panasonic’s IT/IP platform KAIROS will deliver video content to large LED screens at almost all competition venues (26 in total), producing content for up to three venues via a single KAIROS Core. Additionally, remote cameras will be installed in all 29 press rooms. By consolidating simultaneous interpretation at the Main Press Centre (MPC), translation services can be provided from remote locations, reducing the need for travel. Panasonic says these solutions will enhance operational efficiency, addressing hardware and software aspects compared to previous events.

Marking the largest-ever projector deployment in competition venues at the Olympic and Paralympic Games, Panasonic plans to install 130 laser projectors. Among them is the world’s smallest and lightest projector – the PT-RQ25K  – which boasts a 40% smaller body than previous models.

Panasonic claims its labour-saving projection technology reduces resource allocation for transport, storage, and installation, reducing the event’s carbon footprint.

Panasonic also recently unveiled Remotely Managed Service, which will allow operators to manage and monitor large-scale multi-projection systems via the cloud and address potential image misalignment caused by factors such as vibration, without being present on the site. Together, these innovations will contribute to the event’s wish for sustainability, the company believes.

Panasonic has been providing AV equipment and services to the Olympic and Paralympic Games for over 30 years, starting in Barcelona 1992. In October 2014, Panasonic became the first Japanese company to become a Worldwide Paralympic Partner of the International Paralympic Committee.

As a Worldwide Olympic Partner, Worldwide Paralympic Partner, and charter member of The Olympic Partner (TOP) Programme, Panasonic will collaborate closely with the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the Paris Organising Committee for the Olympic Games, and the Olympic Broadcasting Services (OBS) to provide support for event operations.
