"Infrared Wireless Powered Speakers" with Enhanced Mobility

Audio is crucially important for creating the highly realistic sensation of the Olympic Games venue. Panasonic has developed a new infrared wireless powered speaker based on the design concept of professional audio equipment, cultivated through its experiences at the Olympic Games. Thanks to their high portability, easy installation, and battery-powered operation, these speakers already play a key role in various settings. The infrared wireless powered design assures high resilience against interference. This was especially useful for this edition of the Olympic Games, where the working room and press conference room were set up just next to each other.
