Panasonic gets 2010 Olympics gig

Panasonic’s DVCPRO HD camcorders and P2 HD storage format media will be used to capture the 2010 Winter Olympics to be held in Vancouver, Canada. The Olympic Broadcasting Services Vancouver (OBSV), who will host the broadcasts, will be using the Panasonic equipment to capture and distribute the Winter Olympics footage.

The 2010 Olympic Games will be the first Winter games to be captured with HD (1080i) equipment. Panasonic’s DVCPRO HD format was previously used in the 2008 Summer Olympics held in Beijing.

“As in Beijing 2008, during the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, everything will be broadcast from the venues in High Definition,” said Manolo Romero, OBSV’s CEO. “We are confident that for Vancouver 2010 we will be able to capitalize on the experience we gained in Beijing 2008 by providing reliable and efficient, high-quality video broadcast to TV viewers around the globe.”
