Panasonic’s HD Visual Communication System was used at London 2012, after its success at Vancouver 2010. The system was used to hold video conferences over the Internet featuring high-quality image and audio.
This system allowed close communication via video conference between staff in distant locations, from preparation to actual operation of the Games. The system facilitated important operational meetings with sharp, realistic audio/visuals, despite the large distance.
Moreover, the high-definition imaging technology was used for the live distribution of competition video directly from the venue. It became an innovative new solution to provide realistic video at remote venues without a dedicated network.
