The history of Olympic Games broadcasting can also be referred to as the history of advancement in broadcasting technology. The Olympic Games Barcelona 1992 marked the first digital production for the Olympic Games. HD broadcasting and full-HD broadcasting commenced respectively at Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008, and 3D Live Broadcasting was achieved at London 2012. Panasonic's broadcasting equipment supported the visual production of the Host Broadcaster at each of these events. At the Olympic Games Rio 2016, Panasonic supplied the camera recorder, the AJ-PX5000G series, which incorporated the AVC-ULTRA codec. By transferring files over the network, an even speedier workflow was made possible. In 2016, in Rio de Janeiro, a new page was added to the history of Olympic broadcasting.
