For over 21 years, beginning with the 1998 Nagano Winter Games, Panasonic has contributed to the promotion and popularization of sports for athletes with disabilities by providing audiovisual equipment and services for the Paralympic Games. As Japan's first official worldwide partner, we will continue to provide products and services that are accessible to all types of people and provide further support for the Paralympic Movement.

Solution

Panasonic's technology is supporting the Paralympics.

“The Shower” has wide-spreading shower heads that envelop and efficiently warm the body.

The “Power-Assisted Suit” reduces burden on the lower-back that occurs when lifting heavy objects.

"Aqua Heart" bathroom equipment allows for a selection from a full lineup that accommodates the level of nursing care needed.

From "barrier-free" to "floor-free". The “Home Elevator” makes it possible to have even a two-story house feel like a one-story house.

A large-screen display system that dynamically displays the wonder, excitement, and feverish energy of a competition.

A professional projector that clearly projects the performance of the Opening and Closing Ceremony.

Broadcasting equipment that supports diverse and high-quality broadcasting of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

A multi-video distribution system that makes it possible to view competitions according to individual preferences.

As Japan's first worldwide partner, Panasonic will continue to contribute to the Paralympic Movement through the latest AV equipment solutions and welfare-related products.

Beautiful JAPAN towards 2020

What is Beautiful JAPAN?

Beautiful JAPAN is a project that involves visiting 47 prefectures by 2020 to rediscover the beauty of this country while also rediscovering the importance of taking on challenges along with athletes who hope to take part in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Vivid and detailed 4K videos from Panasonic will be released to public.
It is our hope that conveying the beauty of this country with the best videos will produce the most moving emotional responses and bring us all together in mind and spirit.
We began this six-year project with that in mind.
