With all eyes on Rio as the Olympic Games (August 5–21) and Paralympic Games (September 7–18) unfolded—the first ever staged on the South American continent—the pressure was on to ensure the Opening and Closing Ceremonies ran smoothly.
Panasonic's quarter-century of experience in the supply, installation, and operation of visual systems at the Olympic Games was again put to the test in a whirlwind of vibrant color, with spectacular visuals brought to life by over 100 state-of-the-art PT-DZ21K2 projectors. The event was a baptism of fire for the all-new Panasonic PT-RZ31K 3-Chip DLP™ SOLID SHINE Laser projector, which performed flawlessly with brilliant 30,000 lm images in WUXGA resolution.
As a Worldwide Olympic Partner and Worldwide Paralympic Partner, Panasonic's commitment to “Sharing the Passion” extended to display system provision for competition venues, a “Stadium of Wonders” pavilion featuring a 4K+ PT-RQ13K projector, and other showcases featuring a number of Panasonic projectors and professional displays.
Panasonic's technical cooperation inspired a spirit of teamwork that transcended cultural boundaries, helping the innovation behind each product keep the spirit of the Olympic and Paralympic Games burning for the event's duration.
