With one week to go before the Opening Ceremony, the sacred space symbolizing the Olympic Games was at last fitted with 44 line-array speakers. Damian Rowe, Panasonic’s Chief Engineer, had led the local staff during many of Panasonic’s past Olympic Games projects. With Rowe at the helm, the team made up of RAMSA staff and support members from Japan, united to install the line-array speakers in the classic horseshoe stadium. In the midst of his umpteenth control-room test, Rowe broke into a smile. It had all come together.
Panasonic’s preparations are already underway for the next Olympic Games in Beijing. Just as athletes strive for ever-higher glory at the Olympic Games, Panasonic continues to advance its technology – to bring wonder, four years later, to the world again.
